CNN recently posted a story (in video form at least partially) about a woman unfortunate enough to be in an interracial relationship while living in a particularly rural section of Kentucky.

Yes, it is between a white woman and a black man, (as are the vast majority of interracial relationships), but the woman’s point is that racism is alive and quite healthy in the South and especially in her geographic neck of the woods.

It’s a very brief video (something close to 3-4 minutes), and it’s in a section of the CNN website called “iReport,” where CNN basically takes work from others and then determines whether or not to run it more fully in main sections of their site or even possibly on television.

Here’s a link to the piece: http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-712941?hpt=hp_c2
