*A judge in Illinois has tossed out a lawsuit from a white woman who claimed a sperm bank accidentally impregnated with the sperm of a black man.
The Chicago Tribune reports that Jennifer Cramblett’s suit was filed against Midwest Sperm Bank in 2014 in light of her being artificially inseminated with sperm from the wrong donor. As a result, Cramblett gave birth to her mixed-race daughter Payton.
The suit centers on claims from Cramblett that she was unprepared to raise an African American child, in addition to her feeling that her predominantly white community and her “unconsciously insensitive” family members might not be accepting of a child of a different race.
“Getting a young daughter’s hair cut is not particularly stressful for most mothers, but to Jennifer it is not a routine matter, because Payton has hair typical of an African American girl,” the lawsuit said. “To get a decent cut, Jennifer must travel to a black neighborhood, far from where she lives, where she is obviously different in appearance, and not overtly welcome.”
