Black Model Jazzma Kendrick Makes Up With Italian Boyfriend After Dumping Him for Racist Remarks

Posted by Sidney, 06 Jun

Black model Jazzma Kendrick recently dumped her Italian boyfriend, retired Italian soccer player, Christian Vieri, after he used racist remarks on her. She posted several tweets which read:

"I don't care how mad I get you. That's where you cross the line. I'm not mad. I'm happy I know who you really are @vieri_bobo"

"If you are not black (cough cough Italian) and I'm dating you, you have ONE time to say something racist towards me before I'm out the door."

However, even after this public display of zero tolerance for racism in interracial relationships on twitter, they got back together days later.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

There are things that can be tolerated in relationships. But racist mentality is not something that can be wiped clean overnight. Did Vieri learn his lesson? May be he did. But does this mean he is less of a racist after having apologized and Jazzma having taken him back? See, the fact that she did take him back even after declaring her stand against racism shows that she is tolerant. So what will make Vieri not do it again. After all, she did take him back after spewing racist remarks.

If a stranger said something racist to her, is this the kind of person she can count on to stand up for her?

Maybe this is like in the case of infidelity and domestic violence. There are some people who stand by their zero tolerance against spouses who abuse them and/or cheat on them. They take these things as relationship deal breakers. And then there are those that forgive their spouses and go back to them, probably hoping their spouses will stand by their promise never to do it again. I guess some don't do it again. However, more often than not, the cheating spouse or the abusive spouse does it again - then it becomes a break ups to make ups cycle.

But when someone starts insulting you, then it shows disrespect. And if your spouse hurls racist remarks at you, in my opinion, it is disrespectful, and it should be a relationship deal breaker. But who knows what made her get back with him...

Is racism in relationships a deal breaker for you? What do you think of Jazzma and Vieri's make up after his racism?

    Love--REAL Love-- always requires Extraordinary effort from Ordinary people. It takes courage, conversation, consistency and commitment to maintain a relationship--ANY REALationship. (Smile). In the journey of establishing a union, we should cycle through the seasons of life and love. In the calm, sweet, romantic season, it's awesome, amazing and carefree. In the tedious, routine seasons, it can be unnerving and unsatisfying. And then there are the storm seasons when things get horribly ugly. It is in the storms that a ship is actually proven sea-worthy or safe. It's in the hottest fire that gold is refined. It's in daunting disagreements that solidarity is proofed. During these harsh times, harsh tones and terms are spoken, first, in an effort to be heard, then in an effort to hurt. It's not right, but it neednt be fatal. Desmond Tutu said, "Don't raise your voice. Strengthen your argument." I think that this couple needs/needed to learn how to strengthen their arguments. Her forgiveness and willingness to work it out is not passive or naive. Nor is it coddling a racist. It's daring to "put in work" on this REALationship. We ALL say, regrettably, unforgettably, stupid things to folks we love. When We hurt, we lash out in effort to hurt others.....to make them appear as small as We feel and fear that we are. A racist remark(s) does NOT a racist make. Nope. Takes a lot more than that. Blessings to them both.

    Smh. He's italian and said something racist? Kind of takes my mind back to the moors and how they literally changed the italian landscape by conquest. Sexual and otherwise. He's truly ignorant and she is ignorant for making up with him.

    It would be good to know what he said, but at no point in a relationship should this be acceptable. It's a big issue to people from all walks of life but whether people like to hear it or not it's especially an issue for people of african descent (African American too :-) ). I personally wouldn't forget what is said and even though I'd forgive, am sure they'd do it again and nobody has time for that.

    Two points here... 1: What exactly did he say? I'm not denying that he "could" have said something hurtful, but the race card is thrown more often than a baseball these days, so I'd have to see it to evaluate it. If he truly did say something mean and uncalled for, then he should apologize, and it's up to the lady at that point if she wants to accept it and move forward or leave altogether. Done. 2: Stop portraying this nonsense that only White people can be racist or hateful. I've had numerous encounters with black women and families, Hispanic fathers, and Jewish mothers who treated me like a dog, and/or said very hateful and bigoted things towards me, and I headed for the door. Racism, hate, and bigotry can be perpetuated by any man or woman, of any ethnicity, in any country. We all have to do our part as human beings to rise above it and be better people.

      YES. THANK YOU for pointing out how the race card has become some sort of mystical shield to deflect all responsibility for ones behaviour! And believe it or not, I've been on the receiving end of rude and racist comments from black people, too; suffice it to say that their reactions towards me had a bit more vitriol due to culture clash

    Can someone please tell me where I can find my taste of me on the Interracial Site; because I am honest to goodness disappointed. In viewing testimonials there always appears to be suitable couples.

    I am sure he did not call her a B but mostly likely the N word came out of his mouth.

      I'm guessing he may have said 'moolie' or called her an eggplant. Both are derogatory twd blacks, but are so ridiculous as to be forgivable. I meaneggplant?

    I would like to know what he said exactly especially since the word "racist" is often times misused. With that being said, if he really did say something racist, then of course she needs to exit that toxic relationship. I have been socially acquainted with quite a few white males and if it's present, their inner bigot tends to show itself in the first three months.

    Am2y type of bigotry towards any demographic group is unacceptable to me. I dated a white man that didn't take that seriously until we no longer spoke. Needless to say, I did NOT take him back.

    Definitely a deal breaker. I would never trust him again and will always think that's how he really feels about me and my race.

    He might have learned not to *say* anything, but my concern is that he's still *thinking* that way. I'm all for forgiveness and learning curves and growth in a relationship, but there are lines and dealbreakers. This is one of them. AND this is why tis crucial to assess core values early on in the dating. May things go well for Jazzma, and may Christian reappraise his core values and attitudes and reject the racism he's learned. And may our society grow and discard the irrational premises of racism (okay so with Trump's movement in America, I can't say I hold much hope for this latter sentiment *sigh*).

      Hi Rosej8 - I think I understand where you're coming from however, I would urge you to think of a few things: - The most racist group of people I've encountered are black people. - I have dated outside of my race most of my adult life, when I run into ignorant guys I drop them like a hot brick. Period and I do NOT go back. - People are people; thinking there is a single race of people who have zero racist thoughts isn't healthy nor realistic. The best we (as humans) can do is know ourselves; be true who we are as an individual and ditch anyone who makes us unhappy.

    Briannayes, u sure ? Vieri was a fantastic player who had a few black team mates. But his act should not be forgiven.

      When apology is sincere you should forgive. However, taking him back in today's day is a mistake. Chances are this will happen again, and again.

        You put up with a WM saying the N word for 20 years and your profile states WM only. If any man disrespected me for 20 minutes he would have to go. I have dated WM and was married to one as well and never did any of them call me the N word . I don't tolerate that from any man regardless or rather he is Black or White.
