Photographer Donna Pinckley has created a pretty creative photo series called, “Sticks and Stones,” highlighting interracial couples and families juxtaposed above the bigoted insults they’ve received.

Here’s a few:

Pinckley says, “It’s kind of interesting to see, with race relations the way they are, you would think that you would only hear the comments made to older couples, but I’m finding out I have a lot of young couples, too, that have had comments made to them,” she said. “I find that kind of disturbing. It’s not getting better.”

“Anyone is entitled to love,” she said. “It’s not just same race. Love’s love.”
