Racism tries to break up love

I am not against interracial relationships/marriages but there seems to be a lot of white people who are in Boise, Idaho. You can read the article about Ian Johnson and Chrissy Popadics here. Below is a quote from the article:

"But Idaho blacks have seen trouble coming ever since Boise State tailback Ian Johnson, who is black, got down on one knee Jan. 1 to propose to cheerleader Chrissy Popadics, who is white, on national TV after scoring the winning points at the 2007 Fiesta Bowl.

The couple will marry today (Saturday). Johnson has reported receiving more than 30 threatening letters and phone calls from inside and outside Idaho."

When two people love each other and want to get married and are receiving death threats, that is just wrong and very scary. Love comes in many colors and it doesn't matter what someone's skin is to find love. I commend these two people for looking past skin color and following their hearts no matter what comes in the way.

i really don't understand why skin colour is such a big issue to people!? I honestly do think all races play some part in it together and are all as bad as each other at times!
