State Farm recently promoted their #ProtectTheBling campaign, advertising their insurance coverage for personal valuables by Tweeting this picture of a man proposing to a woman. The man was Black and the woman was White. Seeing as this isn’t the 50s, such a coming together of different races is not unusual or illegal; no longer illegal due to the true story and interracial marriage at the scene of the film Loving.
However, racist Trolls lost their mind when they saw the tweet. In the video below we show you some of the replies to their tweet and @AntoineSpeakson gives his thoughts
Here is the original tweet. You can see the response for yourself

Even with that said, there were many people who were pleased to see state farm using a progressive picture of unapologetic love, despite the hate it had received.
