At the risk of getting too technical with it, but since Derek Jeter has now joined the ranks of famous people who have received racist hate mail for interracial dating, it's time to ask the existential question: Given that Jeter's mother is white and his father black, do those creeps understand it might be impossible for him to not date interracially?
