SIMPSON COUNTY, MS (WLBT) – Apparent hate crimes forced an interracial family out of their Simpson County home.  No arrests have been made in connection to the threats.  The family called 3 On Your Side for help.

“I feel so violated.  I feel like nothing will ever be the same,” said Mary Michael.

It is difficult to walk through the home she shares with her husband Christopher and three children because all their belongings have been tossed out, pushed over or broken on the floor.

Even more disturbing were the words and images inscribed on the walls, including KKK, racial slurs and frightening death threats.  “It is hard to feel hopeless and it’s hard to understand that people could be like this in this day in age.  I just can’t understand it,” said Michael.

The threats began last week.  Michael said it started with a phone call, a note in the mail box and then a delivery on the front steps.

“There were two dead puppies with their heads cut off right at the foot of my stairs,” said Michael.

The couple and their children have lived at this house for seven years and never had a problem.  Michael blamed the sudden threats on the research and interviews she is conducting for a book she plans to write.

“It was a true story about a lady who hung herself.  She was a white lady pregnant by a black man,” said Michael.

The Simpson County Sheriff’s Department has launched an investigation.  Michael also called federal investigators.  Meanwhile the Michael family is moving out and currently staying with relatives in Rankin County.

“I’m not running from my house.  I’m actually trying to look out for my family,” said Christoper Michael.

If you would like to help the Michael family you can go to any Trustmark bank branch and donate to the Christopher Michael account.

    Of course it’s a lie. Many of these interracial couples (especially the white one involved) are trying to create self-worth. They seek pity and sympathy.

    How co0vient that she is targeted while writing a book about her relationship. Why would she have to write a book about an interracial relationship? What is this 1950 where we need a book to indulge into this secret kind of relationship relationship? Lol.

    If I wanted to know what it’s like to be in an interracial relationship I’d go get involved in one, I mean it’s not against the law anymore, but quite frankly I’m not interested.

    I was involved in an interracial relationship when I was younger, and if this book is anything like my personal experiences forget about it.

    There are four things you realize when you date outside your race, one is that your different from her, another is that you’ll never be as attracted to her as you would if she was white. Also, the thought of how horrible it would be for a mixed race kid to live without knowing his or her identity is wrong. And, the other main reason is just the occasional uneasy feeling of indifference and difference in a relationship. Most multi-racial relationships involve people just looking to find a companion, it’s not at all like normal healthy homogeneous relationship.

    I think I can speak for most whites, even the so-called racist, when I say all this thrill seeking and attention grabbing lifestyle a race mixer lives is not something we want any part of. If you want to live the way you live, and if your happy race mixing, okay than fine, because most of us so-called racist don’t care.

    Some advise for race mixers, go live your live, but please stop trying to seek attention.

    I agree with the other response. This is most likely a lie. Just like the so many others that are attributed to Europeans and, then, we find out later it was a minority who caused it. Wake up folks!

    The minute I read this article I new it was a lie. Don’t forget you heard it hear first.

    When you read the story, it is just proposterious, 2 beheaded puppies left on the door step.
    ransacked house with racial slurs painted on the walls, this girl has read way to much fiction.

    Then you get to the end of the story and you find out what this is really all about, she’s writing a book on interacial marriage and its troubles. Then there is the infamous you can contribute money to the local bank to help them out.

    This kinda of crap happens alot, people like this make statements about how whites are being mean and in reality the story is trumped up in order to illicite feelings and money.

    In the 1990’s several churches burned down across the south with the same crazy stories and what most didn’t hear is about how many blacks ended up arrested for insurance fraud.

    This lady is full of @#$%^&
