Trouble in Paradise for two Richman lovebirds
By Wilhelmina Hall | July 22th, 2018
Newly weds Noah Check and Ashanti Washington have been married for only six months and have faced the worst when it has come to the public. Noah, born in a lap of luxury, is outraged by how his wife has faced discrimination and prejudice on marrying who she loves. Ashanti's mother, who also shares the same views, is unbothered with her daughter's choices on who she wants to marry and believes people should leave her daughter alone. Washington first was targeted with racial abuse online, leading her to deactivate her Twitter and Instagram accounts due to the numerous fake accounts sending hate mail continuously.
"I was brought up to accept people for who they are rather than stereotypes." Ashanti says clearly, going on to state how racism among interracial couples is unfortunately prevalent in Richman and neighbouring areas. Ashanti discloses to Los Santos Times how she has been harassed and shamed in public due to her interracial marriage— slandered as a "white man's wh*re" and a "slave to whites". She describes the hate from the public as something you "just can't avoid when living life". But Ashanti’s positive response to the hateful messages is to carry on expressing the love she has for her white husband online and "offline".
Noah has told The Los Santos Times how the dynamic duo are a perfectly normal couple like everyone else, "We fight sometimes but every functioning couple does, we should be treated as such". One-in-six U.S. newlyweds (17%) were married to a person of a different race or ethnicity in 2015 and these numbers are ever so growing in the 21st century. Racism among interracial couples in the U.S dates back further than just the 1950s Loving v Virginia case which has changed the laws on marrying outside of your race in Virginia and advanced to more equal rights for bi-racial couples.
