John McCain’s Son Marries a Beautiful Black Woman

Filed under News
Jack McCain married African-American woman Renee Swift.

.

Although a number of Republicans are revered as racist bigots, surprisingly, they have a bit of diversity in their own family. Republican presidential candidate of 2008, John McCain, just celebrated an interracial union between his son Jack McCain, 27, and Renee Swift, 29.  McCain is a lieutenant in the Navy and serves as a helicopter pilot and is stationed in Guam. Swift is a captain in the USAF reserve. The lovebirds met in Guam.

McCain’s sister, Meghan McCain, 28, was filled with excitement (and alcohol) as she tweeted about her little brother’s wedding before, during, and after it was over. The wedding took place this past weekend at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral, with the reception following at the California Academy of Sciences. Although the Washington Post reported that 2012 presidential candidate and Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney attended Jack McCain’s wedding shower, it didn’t get more “star-studded” than that. Jack’s sister Meghan McCain wished a certain celebrity had been in attendance. “Loving all the wedding crashers jokes regarding my brothers wedding…but no, unfortunately I didn’t end up going home with Vince Vaughn,” she jested via Twitter on Sunday evening.

The newlyweds are planning to honeymoon in Africa, after which John McCain is slated for deployment. John McCain, his wife, and all of their children were in attendance. John isn’t the only notable Republican to have a diverse family. Republican House Speaker John Boehner’s daughter just married a Jamaican-born construction worker in May 2013. Boehner’s son-in-law brought a bit of attention to the family shortly before the wedding when he was arrested for possession of marijuana. Despite the run-in with the law, John Boehner was reportedly ‘looking proudly on‘ as his daughter and son-in-law exchanged vows.

Congratulations to the beautiful couples!

    racist is nothing more than lock of faith in god.

  2. Deborah

    The fact that John McCain’s son is black is irrelevant. She is a beautiful woman, and I hope they are happy together.

      What article did you read? John McCain has a black son, in what country Panama? That bride is only a shade darker than the McCain boy. Black, no she is not black, clearly she is of Hispanic ancestry or maybe Italian. That is european white with indigenous something thrown in there, well she is fully going back to her pale white background with this marriage. Better him than any Black man.

      • Max

        Still, let us hope he found a way not to ever repeat certain phrases or expressions like “that one”.

      • Sharon

        Hispanic? Ever heard of slavery? Whites on BOTH sides of my family. I am a New Orleans, Creole, French on one side, Irish on the other, Thow in my great grand mother who escaped the “trail of tears” and what have you got? Cherokee, African, Irish and French! My french grandfather was white, my canadian french grandfather was half! My great grandmother was half Irish and grandfather a former slave was African! I a shade darker than a white woman in winter and tan very well in summer.

        Wherever slaves were from Boston to Texas, the watering down of our Blackness is prevalent by the many shades WE are! I traced my ancestry back to the 1600′s in France, because I always wanted to know, who I was, really! Now I know and I lament how my female ancestors survived! Black and I’m proud! No disrespect to anyone of Hispanic blood.

          THAAAAANK YOU FOR ACKNOWLEDGING THAT YOU ARE BLACK WITHOUT ALL THE OTHER
          RACES,AND BY THE WAY THE BLACK GENE IS SO SCIENTIFICALLY STRONG ACCORDING TO THE
          WHITE PAST SCIENTIST AND MODERN DAY SCIENTIST THAT IT OVERULED ANY OTHER RACE
          GENE THROUGH DOMINATEING IT.

          WHY FEEL ASHAMED OF BEING BLACK WHEN WE DID NOT DO ANYTHING WRONG.

      • Oneplus one

        how do you know any off this? Your statement needs to be documented.

    • Good for him. Got to give credit to the caucasian man when it comes to selecting a black woman. He knows to stay away from the tattoo having, mean attitude showing, over exposed dressing loud mouth black woman. instead, he leaves those typeS of BW for the black man. By the way, would this article still have considered her ‘Beautiful’ without the lighter complexion??

  3. Hello, everyone. Just want to say the word Beautiful in the title was completely unnecessary. Would you do the same for any Black public figure’s daughter with a title that mentions her husband as a Handsome White Man? He loves her, she loves him. End of story. Sam

      How many mixed marriages that you know of last until the couple is even 50 years of age let alone 80? Most of this kind of stuff is a fleeting moment and his dad is still hateful so who gives a care! And whenever they have black people marry into their family, it is normally FAKE!Why is most black people unemployed now, living in the hood and getting shot by the police or other RACIST INDIVIDUALS EXAMPLE TRAYVON and there are other incidents where neighbors shot at people because they are black! Most people on this website seem to have the SLAVE MENTALITY and I feel like I’m on the PLANTATION by being here! You all are to busy trying to be white or please someone white(MASTA) and that is why our schools are going to pot, our families and our young men are marrying into generational CURSES like this girl! I would never marry into a family who once OWNED SLAVES, RAPED AND MUTILATED PEOPLE AND HUNG THEIR MEN FROM TREES BECAUSE THAT IN ITSELF IS A CURSE!

      • truth

        THATS PROVES THAT YOU ARE NOT DESPERATE SOCIOPATH,AND A HAVE GREAT MORALS.
        YOU ARE THE BLACKPEOPLE THAT KEEP US A FLOAT.THANK YOU FOR BEING WHO YOU ARE.

      • Eromal

        Regina James,
        You are obviously GHETTO and should stay off of the computer. You are making Black Americans look bad.
        1. Interracial marriages are Not short-lived, marriages of people of different socio-economic classes are (note: neither is a deadbeat. One is a Navy Lt. and the other an Airforce Cap.)
        2. You DO NOT KNOW how his father feels, don’t assume things like that, its downright mean.
        3. Do you know the difference between how to move up economic and social class? (hint, it has nothing to do with weddings)
        4. Suspicious-looking people DO accidentally get shot all around the world, even White ones.
        5. Do you know who’s family’s had slaves and who’s didn’t? Did yours? How do you know for sure?
        6. Where has all this hate, anger, and confusion in in you grown from? Were you beside HarrietTubman her whole life? See actually SAW things, yet she was a good Christian and was not filled with such hate.
        7. Did you know that 16 years or so AFTER World War II there were still Japanese soliders dug-in on some Pacific islands? Can you understand how that relates to what you typed? I bet not.

  4. Aldo

    What is all the excitement about? Congratulations and all the best to them both!

    Racism will never end in America because people of color are not seen as equal and never will be. ( just one reason among many)

    • Black Pill /bro. L. L. Hill

      The social education of 2007 tells us that we can be equal if our Negroes stop believing that we can’t do it.
      Our Negroes need to learn how to become true Black people.
      True Black people are dedicated to making our race united, respected and self-sufficient.
      After Negroes learn to become true Black people we as a people will take our rightful place in history and our-story. After that happens we will be looked at as equals. It is now up to our Negroes to get educated with the social education of 2007.

      • bj

        Wow!

        The fact that the application of the Spanish word “Negroes” for Blacks says to me that someone is still woefully living in the sixties.

        We have never found the need to call caucasians “Blancos”. We speak English.

        Blacks are and have always been equal to any other existing race. There simply are people, Black and non-Black, whose ignorance prevents them from acknowledging that fact.

        We don’t need to become more anything. Bigotry harms the perpetrator more than the object of bigotry. We are and will remain just fine as long as we don’t allow the ignorant to convince us otherwise.

        Finally, Blacks are not yours, ours, or any other human’s.

        • Regina James

          I did not understand a word you were saying! I’m assuming you did not know how to communicate because you are trying to make a point and you will end up like Michael Jackson because YOU by yourself cannot heal this racist world only God can!

    • Regina James

      Don’t worry, this chick will soon find out the way most caucasian people have 500 faces instead only 2 and MOOD SWINGS OF HATE, believe its coming! But they always profess to be Christians and are the most HATEFUL PEOPLE ON THIS PLANET! My mom and dad always taught me to LOVE but it is sometimes hard to love such evil soles, you REALLY HAVE TO PRAY DAILY! And it seems to me the only white person that a black person normally marries is the REJECTS! In other words, fat ugly, speech impairment, or some type of mental disability or disorder(depression). In essence, black people get the people of different cultures from the bottom of the barrel not from the cream of the crop!

      • Sharon

        Regina,
        Knowing this, I’m sure Jack McCain will NOT impose his parents on her! They’re doomed to fail, if he does. Let those parents of his initiate contact! If they don’t they’ll miss out on those caramel kids of theirs’. Otherwise I agree with everything you said. Peace!

  6. Sandra Lewis

    Judging from her light complexion perhaps she is a mixed black beautiful woman. of course color shouldn’t matter but it seems to be the focal point in this issue. Lets’ hope the marriage will last awhile. perhaps a long time. Marriage is a huge task and these days an even more difficult task for people of the same race to stay together. So they are starting a marriage facing the world and its prejudices. May God have mercy on them and I wish them all the happiness in the world.

    • Jimmy

      Good! Republicans will NOW have a Poster Couple to try and get the “light-skinned” blacks to vote for them in 2016. hehe….just saying

      • udosed

        thanks for saying that now I don’t have to do all that thinking and typing….just saying

      • Regina James

        And they will because during slavery they were the HOUSE NEGRO! Look at the head of the NAACP(BEN JEALOUS, I think that’s his name), he looks white to me but he is running an organization for blacks! This is exactly why I did not JOIN! FAKE!

        • Sharon

          You’re wrong! I’m not even sure that Mr. Jealous is that color counscious but you are! Divide and conquer! That’s what the white man has been using against us for centuries. Ever since Jamestown in 1619, this tactic has been used against us because SOME of us are really ignorant! Every time a Black person uses that schitt on me, I wind up giving them a history lesson. When I realized how much white was in me, I stopped blaming them for everything and took life as it came.

          I feel nothing when I’m told, “you’re different” because I tell them that my cover/color/shade means nothing! It’s a happenstance of birth and the society I had to deal with, being brown/yellow or whatever flava is used to describe me.

          My father was brown-skinned, a snappy dresser with his Brooks Brothers suits, his intelligence and how the women ran after him. He could dance, sing and play an instrument. My Dad fought in WWII in the mountains of Italy. He was a Buffalo Soldier in the 371st, 92nd Division and a hero!

          He was brown and I was fair. I was so proud of him and the respect he received in the Black Community. Wake up and love yourself because we NEED each other! We’re a Winner and just keep on pushin’. Curtis Mayfield

        • LarryJ

          Regina, look at a picture of Walter White. Mr White was one of the founders of The NAACP. Also checkout a picture of W.E.B. Dubois and Congressmen Rev. Dr. Adam Clayton Powell Jr. They were great men who could pass for White or any race besides “Negro!” But they choose to be Negro (Black) and fought for Civil Rights all their lives…!!!

    • bj

      It’s amazing how many people assume that a light-skinned person must be any more mixed than the average American. Light complexions in the Black race most often are the result of one or both light-skinned, not White, parents. This I know from personal family experiences going back 65 years.

      My mother was light-skinned. I could be her twin but I am nut brown – midway between my mother being very light and my father being very dark. My children and grandchildren are light-skinned without any White mixing on my part.

      Any Whites in our family were way back on the plantation where Blacks were raped like sheep and Whites everywhere mixed with both Blacks and the natives. Either Whites have no idea about the fact that they themselves are mixed or they are are ‘passing” like so many others.

      Stop making a big deal about color. God made flowers, birds, humans and many other living things in a variety of colors because He likes colors obviously.

      STOP INSULTING THE LORD!

    Whereas we never had a problem with who marries who. I’m not for it or against it because God shows no partiality in His people. This is one time divine healing is no going to cut it.” Black Americans! White Americans,we are the ones that has to fix the dam thing. Not God.

  8. fred sims

    Big hairy deal John McCain has more black peopple in his family tree than Obama has.

  9. Charles

    With all the media talk about race or racism is absolutely hypocritical.
    All that Inferior and Superior stuff was and is still a learned thing.
    This issue is one time divine healing is not going to help or fix it.
    Man created these so-called racist agendas, and man must fix it. God does not show partiality in no person. In the Bible, honorable men married Black women and God had no problem with it. So if this is a problem for most Whites, then they have a serious problem noe and in the future.

    Love has no color, the sooner people realize that the world will be a better place

    • truth

      LOVE MAY NOT HAVE A COLOR BUT RACISM DOES.YOU JUST CANT MEET A WHITEPERSON BEING BLACK
      AND DISREGARD COLOR BEFORE LOVE.THE FACT THAT COLOR IS CONSIDERED FIRST WHEN TWO PEOPLE
      MEET THAT ARE WHITE AND BLACK,SO I DISAGREE.

    That’s a shame that your enemy (wm) see more beauty in your women(bw) and marriage material (bw)than you (bm) do and if you research the genetics of a ww they give birth to a defective baby because of lack of melanin. Your enemy knows this. This is why he is going after and marrying bw. ;)..Aaawww, calm down it’s not that bad. This SISTA is BEAUTIFUL and like many QUEENS she deserves it.Laugh..dang, Brothas, smh…Not all Brothas, a lot of Brothas love their Queens.

    I wish the newly weds good luck, and happiness forever.

    • truth

      JUST BECAUSE SHE IS BLACK,THAT DONT MEAN SHE IS NOT RACIST LIKE CONDELEEZA RICE. HAVE YOU EVER
      ASKED YOURSELF THE QUESTION,WHY WOULD A BLACKWOMAN MARRY INTO A RACIST FAMILY ?.

      MAYBE SHIS IS RACIST..BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER.

      DO GOOD GIRLS HANG OUT WITH HOES.

      DO FAITHFUL MARRIED MEN HANGOUT IN STRIP CLUBS WITH THE COMPANY OF SINGLE GUYS

      DO FATHFUL WOMEN HAVE MEN RUNNING IN AND OUT OF HER HOUSE.

      MY POINT EXACTLY.

  22. 13. O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allâh is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa. Verily, Allâh is All-Knowing, All-Aware.

  23. TP

    I know many blacks will see this as “racial progress” and more proof that “love is color-blind” and I would strongly advise against this.

    These unions are nothing new. In fact, there is a long line of powerful white supremacists whose children have married or have bred with black people — all while they STILL practice racism/white supremacy against black and non-white people.

    we are also too easily deceived by thinking just because a white person marries a black person they could not be racist OR still practice racism. FALSE.

    And far too many black females think a white male marrying a black female gives us some sort of “seal of approval” EVEN while many black females report being verbally and emotionally and sometimes physically abused by their white husbands

    Remember that black female who called Dr. Laura about four years ago, complaining that her white husband would sit silently while his family and friends made racist comments?

    We must STOP acting like a white person who has s*x with or marries a black person is some “SIGN” of racial progress or white approval AND focus MORE on the RISING RACISM, BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT, BLACK POVERTY, BLACK DROP-OUT RATES than whether some white person marries a black person.

    In fact, the rising rate of blacks marrying whites has done NOTHING to flow the growth of any of the above and IN FACT, appears to make us MORE vulnerable to racism — because these unions DESTROY the possibility of black males and females UNIFYING for our future survival

    and I believe that is the MAJOR REASON these marriages are being promoted by mainstream media

    Two very important things to think about:

    1. Encouraging the most educated and ambitious blacks to marry whites, is a METHOD of producing a “black brain drain” instead of those blacks using their talent, skills, intelligence AND money to enrich the black community and help to liberate black people from racism.

    2. Due to the RISING INFERTILITY of whites, many are choosing to breed with the most highly melanated aka black people in the HOPES of restoring their genetics. These unions are often MORE about WHITE GENETIC SURVIVAL than “romantic love.”

    Whether you agree OR disagree with anything I’ve written, it is OBVIOUS that something or somebody is doing their best to make black males and females think we don’t need each other and the PROOF that we are falling for his madness can be seen in the state of our homes, children, and communities.

    • LarryJ

      TP, you know why some Black people marry White. Some Black women and Black men, think that marrying a White person gives them credibility as a human being, economic security and painted children who would be more acceptable within White society…….Than again, look at all that racial hate directed at that recent Cheerio commercial featuring a Black husband, White wife and their biracial daughter……

      • Regina James

        NOBODY CARES! WHITE PEOPLE NEED TO RESPECT US IN THE BOARD ROOM AT WORK AND STOP WANTING TO TAKE US TO THE BEDROOM BECAUSE I AM DEFINITELY NOT INTEREST IN WHAT THEY HAVE TO OFFER! LOL! THAT’S A JOKE! IF THEY CANNOT RESPECT YOU IN THE BOARDROOM WHY WOULD YOU BE DUMB ENOUGH TO GO TO THEIR BEDROOM AND ALLOW ANY THEM TO POUNCE ON YOU! INSANE! THESE PEOPLE CAN’T DO A THING FOR ME SEXUALLY! LOL! WHEN EVERYTHING IS EQUAL IN AMERICA AND THE WORLD, THAT IS WHEN I WILL APPLAUD MARRIAGES LIKE THIS ONE, BUT UNTIL THEN, NOT! DO NOT GET ME WRONG, I STILL LOVE EVERYBODY, BUT I DON’T HAVE TO HANG OR LIVE WITH THEM, REMEMBER HOW JUDAS TREATED JESUS AND HE KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN! I HAD A FRIEND ONE TIME WHO SAID HIS SON WAS CALLED THE N WORD BY HIS OWN RELATIVES BECAUSE HE WAS MIXED! WHERE DO YOU BRAINY BLACK PEOPLE THINK THOSE TYPES OF PEOPLE HAVE GONE? NO WHERE THEY ARE STILL HERE PLAGUING SOMEONE! I’M JUST SAYING PEOPLE SHOULD BE CAREFUL OF WHOM THEY MARRY!

    @Cordelia Ann Sheppard Riley: Let us stay away from the Willie Lynch Theory please. Is there a slight hint of jealousy?

  25. barbara

    Don’t be fooled by these prants! This is just another road to stay in office and do nothing for the poor people in America. I do not care who marries who, but when I am living two pay chechs to pay check get a grip. It is bad when a female has to change her own oil, in order to pay these high utility bills. I do not worry about my food, clothing, or hair. Those are things that do not impress me. I only have two years to pay off my home, and maybe by then those hungry politicians will be at home with their loving families. Who cares if their children marry outside their race, love is love and hate is hate. Thank God their children have a clear mind of their own.

    One of my White male supervisors was married to a Filipina woman. And the first time I saw her at an office party, she was one of the most beautiful women ever….! She did not look anything like your average indigenous Filipina. White men will not marry a dark skinned, big b**t ghetto queen hootchie momma. They always marry the most beautiful Black woman they can get…..the Halle Berry type…!!!!

    • Wiser

      You do know Halle Berry is white, right? She may pass for Black in the eyes of some fools. Is she involved with Black men? NO However she does date within her race to produce even whiter offspring…not a pretty sight.

      • LarryJ

        Wiser, if I am correct, Halle Berry is the product of a Black American male and a White American female. Ms. Berry had prior relationships with Black men such as Eddie Murphy, Wesley Snipes, Spike Lee and several others. Now she has a child by a poor azz “White Boy” whom she is paying child support. And she is now about to marry another poor azz White Boy! Ms. Berry like President Obama, is biracial but are considered Black….!!! And like President Obama, she was raised by her White mother in a White consciousness. I do not know if she lean more towards her Black side to reap the benefits of being “a Beautiful Black female Actress!” I equate Ms. Barry with people like Lena Horn, Dorothy Dandrige, Vanessa Williams and other famous Black women who were called “beautiful!” By White standards and Hollywood……

      • truth

        she dated wesley snipes and briefly dated eddie murphy in the past.

    • TP

      i think it says a TON about black self-hatred and low-self-esteem when a black male EQUATES dark skinned black females with a ” big b**t ghetto queen hootchie momma”

      and “beauty” with a black female who looks white and considers that the standard of beauty for black females

      also, what does that say about black males who came from a dark-skinned black female OR are dark-skinned themselves?

      that we are a people who have been brainwashed AND brain-trashed and taught to see other black people through “white eyes”

      no wonder so many of our black children have such low-self-esteem and so many young black females are using bleaching creams and wearing hair weaves that don’t suit their own natural beauty

      because of COMMENTS like this AND because so many black adults lack self-esteem themselves

      (for the record, many white males prefer dark-skinned black females, especially those with who wear their hair natural NOT that we should take any comfort or pleasure in that. It is STILL destructive to black survival which is why s*x with white people is being promoted by the (white) mainstream media

      we really need to start THINKING before we SPEAK (or WRITE)

    • Linda

      Larry, you are ignorant. We are caught up in the whole light – skinned vs dark – skinned bullshit.
      I’m dark skinned, beautiful, educated and married to a white man who is worth well over 100 million dollars. We marry those who are in our socio and economic circles, period!

      • LarryJ

        Linda, you married a “White Boy” to give yourself humanity and what your think… acceptance… and the security of his ” $ 100 million!” And a life that a Black man cannot provide. The reality is, to your White husband`s family, friends and business partners, you will always be his “Black wife!” AS long as you are Black, you will not be able to hide behind or within anything…!!!! My late sister, a very beautiful and gifted Black woman, who owned her own advertising business, was a part time model and college professor, married a rich Native American man who was adopted and raised by rich Whites. His foster White parents and siblings never accepted her. They had to go to Hawaii to be married without his family`s blessings…!!! Mixed race unions in these racist United States is still looked upon as an aberration……!!!! Enjoy your White man before he come to his senses and kick you back to the ghetto with a few dollars…..

      Your mentality is that is the black woman isn’t light complexion or
      extremely thin, she isn’t beautiful. In other words she cannot
      look like a black woman. Check yourself out!

  27. Yes it’s amazing how many negative comments are being expressed by black Men they marry more white Women than black Women marry white Men but as soon as the shoe is on the other foot they get in an up roar and say derogatory things well it looks like the tide has changed in that black Women are no longer waiting for ever and a day for the black Man

    • bj

      White men have always been mesmerized by the Black woman.

      They seem to have tired of whorish (sorry but truth is truth) White women and are looking for real mates which they are finding in so many Black women.

      And since Black men so callously and disrespectfully wandered away from Black women, the latter have started taking the time to consider those sincere White men who actually show them more respect than Black men (sorry but truth is truth).

      A Black woman’s patience is truly a virtue.

      White women thought they were taking Black men from Black women. Now they see that White men are running after Black women instead of them.

      Many Black women believe that White women deserve exactly the bad treatment behind closed doors they’re getting from their Black “trophies” that we neither want nor need.

    • LarryJ

      Rosemary Davis, I do not care who marries who be they Black, White, Yellow or Red. Many of my army buddies back in the day, married German and Vietnamese women. Several of my co-workers and friends married African, Filipina, West Indian and Hispanic women. My beautiful college educated daughter`s late mother was a Guyanese East Indian. My current girlfriend is Costa Rican. People are people and love transcends race, culture and religion…….But the reality is, in America, things are not going to well between Black men and Black women…..

    Is a real pitty that John McCain cannot yet see more clearly, that all men are created equal.

    • Greg

      You don’t know John McCain. He has a very dark skinned step daughter. He is not an individual racist. Colin Powell always say this about him. He is very good friends with Muhammad Ali. I don’t have an individual problem with him. I have a political problem with him. Much like George W. Bush. He has a lot of black friends too. I actually like both of them as people. I do not like their politics.

      OUR ANCESTORS DROPPED THE BALL,NOT MODERN DAY BLACKMEN,AND BY THE WAY WHO TOLD WHITES
      THAT IT WAS OKAY TO BUY SLAVES.THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN HIGHLY MORAL LIKE THE RUSSIANS THAT

    I believe our thinking will change only when we are able to use different definitions on subjects. One definition we need to know is the difference between a Black man and a Negro man? Negroes mistakenly think they are the same but they are not. All the negative things you ever say are actually about Negroes not Black people. The social education of 2007 is needed by all people who don’t know the difference between Negroes and true Black people. Humanity need us to learn how to love all people and to become truly united.

      Black Pill, during my time, I read about and knew of some very famous and fine men and women who were “Negroes” and they did not have a problem with that racial connotation and we can start with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And during my time, I was called Negro, Boy Afro-American, African American, Black American and always n****r…!!!!

      • LarryJ

        Black Pill, there was a time when if one Negro called another Negro “Black!” between the two, one was going to be beaten down or maybe even killed….!!!! Being called Black was a derogatory profanity back then….

    The most so called civilized people are as near to babarism as the most polished steel to rust.Imaging that John McClain is one of the top men in the U.S congress making laws.African people are like the balance in the bank. They are teaching all the world with God and showing them the way.Up You Mighty People. Egypt in Africa was already old when they were still walking on all fours in Europe and hitting each other over the head with sticks, living in caves.One day with all that African people have been through they were first upon the earth and they will be last.God is good.The world is unfolding right even though we cannot see it yet.

      Haile, China is as old as Africa in the history of ancient civilizations that benefited the world. And like Africa, China in the 19th century, was raped and exploited of its people, land and valuable resources by European (and Japanese)imperialism and colonialism. But look at the industrial progress China has made since Chairmen Mao took over since 1950. China is now a world power, international player and industrial giant…!!! Today, in all of Black Africa (Former Bantu States) The Union Of South Africa, is the only country that has a stable democratic government, strong economy and solid progressive social, medical and educational institutions. And its the only Black African nation that has a respectable stock market connected to the international trading market. Even neighboring Black African countries trading with South Africa, prefer the South African Gold Rand dollar for payment rather their own weak currency,,!!!! And why is this..??? Because the White South Africans are still in control of the South African economic business and banking systems…!!!! As well as its educational system. Had the Whites left South Africa when The ANC took over the government, that country would have declined into political and social chaos and tribal civil wars………

    Wow! First of all, people who say she’s bi-racial just because of her skin color have nothing better to say. I don’t think I’m going out on a limb to say most Black families have a wide range of coloration due to the ravages of slavery, and WE know that! Some of us have siblings that range from light to dark in color in the same family from the same parents!

    What too many folk don’t know is biology can reach back generations to grab some genesfrom somebody long-dead and come up with complexions, hair type, eye color, let-alone height, weight, and personality, that can’t be readily explained by just looking at the parents. But that’s too often what WE still get hung up on and judge each other by, rather than more important character traits. Then we wonder why we’re still judged superficially by others outside of our community. WE stay transfixed on color, too light-too dark, hair, etc.

    That’s what keeps hacks like Maury Povich on TV: “You ARE the father!”

    Would these same people say the same things about this couple if he was a Democrat from the Kennedy clan marrying a Black woman? Or would that be different and deemed OK?

    Maybe instead of hatin on this one couple and what their potential “ulterior motives” are for marrying, we should be saying “Have a good life.” and continue to focus on the very real problems in our communities, some of which are self-inflicted (disrespect for Black women & girls; multiple Baby Mamas; not marrying before procreating; selling drugs & perpetrating senseless violence) that have brought disastrous results.

    And, maybe examine the real motives of self-serving politicians, Republican and Democrat, that too often exacerbate problems by their ineptitude, greed and callousness that bring disastrous results in our communities.

    This is only an affirmation of his (the young McCain) rebellion of his father’s control and point of view.

    The concept of race is null…the genome project affirmed what the ancestors have always stated. Racial doctrine invented to legitimize so called racial concepts drives these foolish notions of false superiority and chronic but false inferiority. If one is truly superior would it be necessary at all to work so hard to persuade others or make it so?how often do we hear Michael Jordan traveling the globe to say that he’s the greatest ever? Greatest race, country, intellectuals, blah, blah, blah…

    Who cares? My people are catching h**l all over the world and you want to play up so sell out house negro.

  42. Ann G.

    Due to slavery we come in a variety of colors, my daughter in law is a social worker, fell on steps on her job, had to have P.T. when she walked in the P.T. office, they wanted to know if she spoke English, she told them yes, she was African American, she looks Spanish, this was not the first time, both parents are African American. Looks can be deceiving. Hope it works out for both couples. Looks like you can’t judge the “race” by the color.

  43. The title of this article is somewhat misleading, because it is quite apparent that McCain’s wife is mixed. I really wish Blacks and Whites would not ignore the other half of who and what a person is. If he had married a majority Black woman then perhaps this article would have been more interesting.

  44. steven

    I also do not believe this woman is black. Their babies will be beautiful blonds. Marrying a white male, she also does not hv to worry about being BEAT into submission…which is the character trait of the American Negro.
    Google:: ” White & Black: Dangerous combination”…and you’ll see how dangerous black males are in relationships with white females. If this is a black female,can’t blame her at all for NOT marrying a B/Man

  45. wanda

    Not sure why some are under the assumption that the bride is bi-racial. She may not be of a deep hued brown complexion, but she appears to be fully African American to me. In any case, there’s no controversial information here, just only that the groom’s last name is McCain. Other than that small fact, I just see an interracial couple that, as far is this picture is concerned, appear very happy. Congratulations to them both.

    ~ I noticed on Wheel-Of-Fortune when the men say their married?
    Most the time they say: Their Married To A Beautiful Wife.

    ~ And most the time when women say their married?
    It’s To A Wonderful Husband.

    It doesn’t seem to matter what color one is.
    Men want beautiful, and women want wonderful.

    His wife is a beautiful Black woman who is also a Captain in The United States Air Force, meaning that she also has a college degree and I am sure, a good job. Would some of you here prefer that he married a big b**t popping loud mouth fake hair Hootchie Momma dressing Black woman ghetto queen wearing more make up than a circus clown with a name like Shameeka with 2 welfare kids by two different baby daddies currently in prison…???

    @Woodie Wills – Shut up. Please, just shut up.

  52. Mr. Time

    It’s amazing the amount of folks who seem to have been brainwashed by the media (news and movies). It’s a myth that the black man has strayed away from the black woman. Watch WHAT BLACK MEN THINK by Janks Morton and you will understand that out of the black male population in the United States, only 5.6% (NOT 30%, NOT 40%, but ONLY 5.6%) of black men are married to white women. Back in 1980 or 82 the number was 3%. Which means that these numbers of black men marrying white women are so small that the number has not even doubled in 31-33 years. I hope the best for the couple. However, stop believing that black men have strayed away from black women. STOP! because it is definitely not true. Interracial marriages, particularly those marriages between blacks and whites seem to get the most media attention, and therefore can have a lot of people or mostly everyone thinking that black men don’t want black women or that black women don’t want black men. It’s silly.

    Soap operas like to have their black women characters with their white male characters, while at the same time they show white men with white women as couples; yet somehow will not show or rarely show black men and black women couples and white women with black men. Isn’t this hypocritical? Yet their main demographic are women (of different races, but in this case black women), who (black women) I think will tend to believe that black men are no good or can’t be trusted because the black female character(s) is with a white guy.

    Understand folks, it starts with you. You cannot be Ms. Wrong and think you are going to get with Mr. Right (a REAL black gentleman). It’s like oil and water…the two do not go together. Therefore, FIRST change yourself for the better. The same principles apply also to men. There are things about ourselves (men and women) that we can change, but because there are things about us that we cannot change we need God (Jesus Christ) to deliver us from the things we have accepted into our life/personality that are not good for us (whether it be physically, mentally, emotionally, etc, etc.). Everyone has things about them that they cannot change on their own. If you would accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior His deliverance will come into your life and you will be changed only for the better (naturally and spiritually).

    Do you folks even realize that there are african american communities where in those communities only wealthy blacks live. Black men married to black women and have beautiful children together that the media does not show you. I know about this because they had mentioned and revealed this during a dateline segment years ago. However, they don’t talk about these families regularly. In other words, the cosby show and the positiveness it put out there was and is NOT a fantasy. There is a reason why the cosby show lasted for 8 long years (which, by the way, is longer the every star trek TV series that ever came out).

    To african american women, black men have not given up on you so don’t give up on us. Folks, realize that racism is so much of a problem that you have people who are NOT black on these black websites/black forums, pretending to be black, saying harsh things TO YOU (black people) for the purpose of causing a divide between black men and black women. Basic critical thinking skills would help you to see that. DO NOT listen to them. The black family and black relationships are beginning to heal as I am typing this. Don’t let racists (and even some black folks who dislike their own black people) and their lies and anger blind you to this fact. Jesus Christ is healing. Open your eyes and see.

    If you will accept the Lord say…Lord Jesus, forgive me for all of my sins. I repent to you for my sins. Wash me in your blood. I believe you died for me on the cross, and shed your blood, and resurrected 3 days after your death; and ascended into Heaven where you now sit at the right hand of the Almighty Father in Heaven. Come into my heart. I accept you into my heart as my Lord and personal Savior. In Jesus Name, Amen.

    If you believe the words you have prayed I John chapter 4 verse 4 reads, “….greater is He (Jesus Christ) that is in you, than he(the devil) that is in the world.”

    Jesus Loves you. God bless you.

    A few of these comments are crazy- no one should make blanket statements in reference to an entire people, whether black or white. It is true that our history is an ugly one but I believe there are some Americans that do sincerely wish to move beyond race and for those people race simply does not matter. I feel that there seems to be a number of you that are so entrenched in the past, it’s difficult to see a way out of the racial self-hatred. Step outside of the ‘hood and learn to experience something new and different- you would be amazed that not everyone has this slave mentality of ‘Massa out to get all of us’. Our women could definitely learn to love someone outside of the “race”, trust me, our ‘brothas’ are having themselves a ball with WW. I salute this woman for taking a chance on a good guy.
