  • We don’t normally report on Senator John McCain’s family matters, but today’s an appropriate time to do so.

    The Arizona senator’s son, Jack was married over the weekend to Renee Swift. And you may have noticed that Ms. Swift, Now Mrs. McCain, is a person of color.

    People reported that the younger McCain, 27, is lieutenant in the Navy and is based in Guam where he’s a helicopter pilot. Swift, 29, is from the Bay Area and is a captain in the Air Force reserve. They met in Guam.

    The couple wed in San Francisco at Grace Cathedral and a reception followed at the California Academy of Sciences, according to a rep. The Washington Post reports that the event was attendend by all of the McCain children and even former presidential candidate Mitt Romney showed up at rehearsal dinner Friday night at the Tonga Room of the Fairmont Hotel

    Meghan McCain, the groom’s sister, tweeted about the occasion throughout the weekend.

    And speaking of social media, it comes as no surprise that folks are chiming in with well wishes for the couple, but of course there are those who still have issues with mixed marriages.

    According to Cocoa Fab, on the McCain Facebook page, one commenter, Diann Daily, wrote: “No wonder McCain has crawled into bed with Obama…His son married a black girl! McCain is a RINO and a TRAITOR! Eeeewwwwwwwww…..”

    Unfortunately others jumped and did the same thing, basically calling him a traitor. But not everyone who left messages is in the stone age. George Dwyer, who wrote “Did someone seriously post about this dude marrying a black chick like it was a bad thing? What dimension are you living in? Is it possible to be that ignorant in the year 2013?”

    Unfortunately the answer is yes. However, that’s not going to stop the happy couple and wish them the best. By the way they plan to honeymoon in Africa and  return to Guam.

    1. I pray their marriage is a long and prosperous one! I always did like Senator McCain (though antoginizing the Vietnamese government wasn’t kool). But he stands as the only republican I’ll ever like so far.

    2. Good luck to them. Navy-AF is more of a mixed marriage than white-black. I hope they actually get to spend some time together! Gd bless them with long life, health, happiness and prosperity.

    3. Who still call us color, I though we were call Black Americans know but anyway I’m happy for the beautiful couple and Good Luck and don’t worrie about them hater’s they are just mad they don’t have that beautiful Black Women on their arm.

    4. I live and work at a bar in Guam. I had the pleasure to meet both of them. No one ever gave the notion that we knew who he is related to. After seeing him solo for a few weeks, it was great to meet his future wife. Both of them are awesome individuals. Best of luck for both!
