This NFL Player Is Getting Dragged For Toasting To 'More Light Skin Kids' With His White Wife

His wife is also catching some backlash.

We’re only 10 days into Black History Month and racism proves to be alive and well.

  • Today’s clear example actually comes from an interracial couple. Los Angeles Charger Jahleel Addae and his fiancé Lindsey Nelson are receiving criticism for a post Lindsey made on her Instagram story.

    While at a restaurant, Addae, Nelson and other interracial couples all made a toast. To what? They’re all heard saying, To “more light skinned kids.” Nelson also captioned her story post with the toast just to make sure you didn’t misinterpret their colorism.

  • After the post, Jahleel made his Instagram private, so he most likely felt the Internet backlash. Below is what some people had to say.

  • SMH. That's how they really feel? Sad.
