The Ohio Sperm-Bank Controversy: A New Case for Reparations?

Matthew McKnight, New Yorker, October 14, 2014

A complaint recently filed with the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, introduced us to the Cramblett family. Jennifer Cramblett, thirty-six, was reared in Scio, Ohio, “around stereoptypical attitudes about people other than those in her all-white community.” Cramblett recalls hearing members of her family speaking “openly and derisively about persons of color.” Cramblett herself, who now lives in Uniontown, Ohio, “did not know African Americans until her college days at the University of Akron.” Then, in 2012, the complaint says, she gave birth to one.

Last month, Cramblett filed a complaint for wrongful birth and breach of warranty against the Midwest Sperm Bank. The complaint reads, “On August 21, 2012, Jennifer gave birth to Payton, a beautiful, obviously mixed race, baby girl.” Cramblett is claiming fifty thousand dollars in damages because the company gave her sperm from a donor other than the one she’d requested. The complaint explains that, when Cramblett and her partner, Amanda Zinkon, decided to have a baby, “their desire was to find a donor with genetic traits similar to both of them.” Upon realizing that Cramblett might have been given the wrong sperm, a receptionist at the bank asked if she “had requested an African American donor.” Cramblett’s response: “No, why would I request that? My partner and I are Caucasian.”

Instead of taking aim at the clerical mistake, much of the complaint focuses on the injuries that Cramblett and Zinkon have incurred, and will continue to incur, because they have a “mixed race” child. They say they now have to travel to “a black neighborhood” to get the girl’s hair cut; they must now cope with the stress and worry from having a child who is stigmatized; they are concerned about enrolling their daughter in an “all-white school.” The complaint emphasizes that “all of Jennifer’s therapists and experts agree that for her psychological and parental well-being, she must relocate to a racially diverse community with good schools.” The central, and problematic, argument in Cramblett’s claim is based on the “fears, anxieties and uncertainty” that she and Zinkon must now navigate, as parents of a child with a skin color they did not ask for.

The case is entangled with a number of troubling ideas about science, identity, and class in this country. By equating race with “genetic traits,” Cramblett is claiming that race is a biological fact. By arguing that a child with darker skin and hair that is different from hers is an impediment to her chosen life style, Cramblett tacitly condones the hierarchy in this country that determines the relative worth of one life over another.


If the court awards Cramblett damages, it will essentially be paying her and her daughter reparations, something that our country has denied millions of others. Her claim hinges on the same rationale that led to a lineage of Americans who have been treated as second-class citizens–that it’s who her daughter is, and not the actions of others, that is the source of the disparate treatment she is likely to receive. Whatever stigma Payton may feel reflects our country’s history and society, not nature–a distinction that has always been true but has been elided, in part, by the perversion of science on which racism is based.

      It’s nice to see that those liberal lesbians aren’t licked yet! You go, girl! And keep going….far, far away, with your niglet. All the money in the world isn’t going to solve your problems.

    I wonder what the New Yorker’s stance is on mixed-race adoption. Do they similarly lambast black activists who claim that whites adopting black children is some sort of cultural abomination?

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      If they are true Cultural Marxists, which at the New Yorker they are, they would say that “race is a social construct” and only racists and bigots see color.

      This only applies to Whites, of course, who, according to the likes of those who run and write for the New Yorker, are racists and bigots by definition

      • Ron Cheaters

        “the perversion of science on which racism is based.”

        Quite a bold statement coming from someone whose credentials are elusive.

  • DaveMed

    Reparations to whom?

    By all sane metrics, it is European-Americans who have suffered losses from racial diversity in just about every way.

    • Mary

      Most other groups have gained, while what Whites have lost is profound and irreparable. Diversity is the worst thing that ever happened to us.

    • me

      Every White person on the planet would have to be paid a trillion dollars for what the ‘diverse’ hordes have inflicted on us. That wouldn’t even make up for all of the lives lost on the alter of ‘multiculturalism’.

  • MekongDelta69

    I hope these two leftist government sanctioned, “Perpetually Oppressed Groups Of The Month Clubs” beat the hell out of each other and that they both lose

  • AmericanCitizen

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! My sides split over this one! This is the definition of a Liberal’s Dilemma: wants an alternative lifestyle and a child and is of course full of white guilt and privilege. Gets a mulatto baby and now is disgusted. How many Liberal people read this story and had their head explode? Absolute classic.

    • B.A_2014

      I dare say when a liberal is confronted with the opinions of Amren readers their knees buckle. I’ve seen liberals hit the roof when I have strayed from the PC line.

  • Non sequitur.

    I do think her argument is a crock; she just wanted a white child. But she doesn’t want to say it.

    Speaking of, I have come to the conclusion that the reason that a lot of people despise people like Jared Taylor isn’t because of what he says, it’s for that he says what he says. In other words, he is stating directly what he wants and the way things are and should be; he’s not playing the modern politically correct game of racialism dressed up in egalitarianism using a Rube Goldberg collection of legal, moral, philosophical and rhetorical devices to create a system where white liberals don’t have to suffer the diversity they want to inflict on everyone else all the while pretending they are altruistic and love diversity.

    • TruthBeTold

      She wanted a White baby when she picked a White donor.

      She certainly didn’t go to the clinic and say, ‘surprise me’.

    • Ron Cheaters

      Some people I show his article’s to find he can articulate what they feel, but can’t say for a myriad of reasons.

      • He is a gifted writer and speaker and this is why: he gives oppressed white people a voice even as they find themselves robbed of the very language necessary to articulate the problems facing them.

    • Anna Tree

      He is the little boy saying the Emperor has no clothes…

      Most still don’t listen to that little boy, many hate him but more and more are joining him to say the Emperor has no clothes…

      Then the castle of cards will break down.

  • WR_the_realist

    It is hard to comprehend the minds of those who think that race is not a biological fact. If it wasn’t, how would Cramblett have even known that she was given sperm from a black man?

    We all know the real reason for the lawsuit, and it isn’t due to the difficulty of cutting black hair. The lesbians don’t want to have to raise little black Latisha.

    • B.A_2014

      I’m sure she’ll grow up to be a wonderful stripper.

      • Whitetrashgang

        That is so true, but I would go with hooker too.

  • M.

    It’s not about the neighborhood, skin-color prejudice, “I met African-Americans in college”, bla-bla. This just sounds like a liberal cover-up to not sound racist. The real reason they’re angry is: they wanted a white baby and they’re getting a mulatto instead.

    And I don’t blame them.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      If race is just a social construct: if she and her partner are really super good parents, that girl will be white by the time she’s 7.

      If she’s not, Jennifer and Amanda are just more ‘full of hate’ than they realise.

      • none of your business

        Not really numerous studies of blacks adopted by Whites grow up with the exact low IQs and vicious personalities of their black parents. One White parent generally does not make a difference. The mixed kids almost all have the low IQ and criminal tendencies of the black parent.

      • me

        Nope. Nature trumps nurture ALWAYS.

    • dukem1

      Really…What in the world could be wrong in stating you would like to have a child, or grandchild, that kinda-sorta looks like you?

      • Toto

        Her biological child would have 50% of her genes no matter who the sperm donor is. And besides, what does it matter if your child looks like you or not?

        • Ron Cheaters

          A strange white child down the road would have more genetically in common with her than her own mulatto child.. that’s no way to pass down your essence.

          Your family for thousands of years have kept their heritage and history in tact, and you ruin it in one night by sleeping with a Negro/Mestizo. Do you not think something is deeply wrong with that? That beautiful red hair, gorgeous blue eyes, creamy white skin etc, GONE in under an hour. You’re basically destroying evolution.

            Thank you. You put it very clear.

        • 1stworlder

          Even if it was the smartest black man in the world there would still be the problem of regression to the mean.

        • ghettovalley

          The purpose of reproduction is to ensure that your genetic material lives on after your death. When you have a mixed race child with a black it doesn’t look white, doesn’t act white, or think like a white. It looks nothing like you, or any of your ancestors that ever lived. It doesn’t identify at all with its white side. Likely it will marry and reproduce with other blacks, causing the end of your genetic heritage forever. The point of reproduction is to ensure that your people live on. What you suggest, whites having babies with other races when they are less than ten percent of the global population, is racial and genetic suicide.

    • Sharps Rifle

      The complaint calls the child “beautiful.” I’ve seen the photos. Here I always thought it was illegal to commit perjury…that kid is anything BUT “beautiful.”

      • B.A_2014

        At my aunts wedding she picked my mixed race cousin to be the flower girl. I have to say as a child she was a good looking child. She had a ginger afro with pure white skin. As she’s got older her skin has darkened and her fathers grotesque Ivorian full negro features are now very prominent. When I pointed out that my niece is the youngest(the youngest is usually the flower girl) I was accused of saying that because I didn’t like my cousin because she was black. I explained that I could hardly hate a seven year old and that it is a tradition for the youngest girl to be the flower girl. But they picked her and I know it was because she was half black. It was so pathetic watching people (white liberal goons obviously) tell her how beautiful she was. Not a word to my niece or sister for that matter. All attention was directed towards the negro child.

        • Usually Much Calmer

          Yep. Abject fawning. I try to point that out delicately and make people feel awkward but it is surprisingly difficult.

          • me

    Lesbians tend to be liberal—taunting compassion, tolerance and inclusion–forcing it on everyone else.

    What happened?

  • Fed Up

    Guess if the mixed race baby was born with Lesbian tendencies, it would have been OK.

    • me

      “Born with lesbian tendencies’?! Explain bisexuals, then.

    • 1stworlder

      I don’t think they can start licking it until it comes out.

  • JohnEngelman

    A woman who wants a sperm donor should choose the sperm donor herself. I am sure there are a lot of men in MENSA who would be glad to help.

    • me

      Like Engelman, if he belonged to MENSA. Of course, you’d have to be an Asian faux lesbian that was really into nerd men.

  • TruthBeTold

    The case is entangled with a number of troubling ideas about science,
    identity, and class in this country. By equating race with “genetic
    traits,” Cramblett is claiming that race is a biological fact.

    Race is a genetic reality which is WHY this White woman had a black baby.

    These people will push their propaganda even when the facts are right in front of you.

  • Sharps Rifle

    Give the kid up and have another one. How hard is that? Maybe this time they can find a turkey-baster jockey who will do the job right.

    • me

      Calling David Crosby….

    • Alexandra1973

      Yeah, really, I’m sure some liberal couple wouldn’t mind their very own Hollywood handbag.

    • M&S


      Even if you don’t believe, as I do, that there is quite a bit of quantum entanglement theory going on in the complexities of genetics as ‘soul’ which translates to achievable made fate, the fact is that this woman’s uterus will have been distorted and her reserves of DHA3 (high metabolic concentrate lipid storing Omega Fatty Acids as complex proteins necessary for enhanced brain tissue growth and the reason why girls get heavy thighs and round butts in puberty) largely depleted in the gestation of her first child.

      This is in fact true for all women, no matter the race of the parent and is why, traditionally, the first born was always so highly valued. They got the best confirmation (an elastic but firm womb keeps the fetal bones from distorting as they grow) and the best epigenetic donais.

      It is the real reason for primogeniture and has been known for centuries in agrarian cultures where active animal husbandry also selected early births over later ones for genetic health.

      Further to this, I doubt if these two ladies’ suit will stand a snowballs hope of passing judicial review if they dump the unwanted mixed baby, largely due to attitudes like yours. It certainly makes a hash of any ‘reparations’ since the inconvenience and safety issues of putting a mixed race child into a black environment are largely those of the white parents.

      Indeed, any white kid which these two subsequently have will have to be raised with a black child who will grow up knowing that this ‘second effort’ was the one her parent’s really wanted (Black children, especially girls, are also not easily adopted out, even with a manger dowry). I cannot imagine that will be a safe or pleasant environment for either child. It’s certainly too late (2012 birth) to give the child up to the state.

      And finally, Mz. Crambett is 36, which is quite late to be having children. Where she and her partner may never have another child, that’s TWO wombs out of the business of reproductive assurance of our racial group’s domninance of our own homelands. At least four, maybe six kids.

      _Written off_.

      This is the social cost of lesbianism and late-life reproductive choice. As our population shrinks, the huge TFR fractions of Hispanics (3.2) and Blacks (2.4:1) vs. European Whites (1.83) will have ever more profound weights of decision on when our society ceases to be an advanced one and America becomes a third world failed state.

      What I want to know is if it truly was a clerical error or if the donor mislabeled himself intentionally. Or perhaps if he himself is a carrier and didn’t realize his own mixed ancestry. I’m reminded of a South African couple whose child was black, even though the mother was a white blonde without any giveaway characteristics.

      They ended up digging through the family tree until they discovered how it had happened.

  • RyanP

    “Cramblett tacitly condones the hierarchy in this country that determines the relative worth of one life over another.”

    Idiot! Would he say the same if two black lesbians were complaining about a getting a half white baby? Wanting your children to look like you applies to all groups and has nothing to do with hierarchy.

  • Luca

    Ms. Cramblett will lose her case. She must know that since Obama was elected we are a post racial society. And besides, as all liberals know, race is a mere social construct. How can something that does not exist cause pain and suffering?

  • B.A_2014

    I live on the other side of the pond so I feel like intruding on a internal matter here but I have to point out a massive flaw in the argument of your mud people. Most Afro Americans pre 1965 are part white and some of those that are part white are descendents of slave owners. Does that mean that blacks that are descendents of slave owners should have to pay blacks that are descendents of actual slaves. How do you put them and how long would it take to put them into twi different categories. If I didn’t know any better I’d say they were looking a handout but that couldn’t be so since they’re either scientists, successful gangsters or cool sports stars.

    • You have made solid rational reasonable argument.

    • LHathaway

      We seem to have a ‘one-drop’ rule. Anyone who is even remotely not white is entitled to the full affirmative action treatment and news stories. It seems unpleasant, nasty, and backwards. but It will see less so when being white, or married to a white, is the requirement to live in the white ethnostate we vote for ourselves in the Pacific Northwest. For you, I guess you have Scotland and Wales. I hope they’re not just white places, but nice places as well.

      • Anglokraut

        Just how are the liberal voters of the Pacific Northwest going to vote for the creation of a White Ethnostate? That whole area gets kookier by the day–what do you think is going to change their liberal jungle-love?

    Maybe it wasn’t a mistake?

    I suspect there was NO mix-up and the vial WAS intended for her.

    Schadenfreude for someone trying to play victim and blame everyone else but herself for her own hatred and racism.

    Poor kid already has a several strikes against her, unwanted because of her color, racist mother, “two mommy,” most likely unstable household.

    I suspect the kid will eventually turn on her racist mother(s) and this aberrant situation where the husband is a woman and the father of the child is a test tube.

    • LHathaway

      “Poor kid already has a several strikes against her, unwanted because of her color, racist mother, “two mommy,” ”

      No, children benefit from being raised in lesbian households. because ‘children benefit from having a diversity of role models’.

      • Ron Cheaters

        I recall getting into a debate with a lesbian on some news story, but the argument went something like this:

        Me: It isn’t really sex without a penis.
        Les: Anything you can do, we can do better.
        Me: Yeah, but you can’t have kids
        Les: Of course we can, that’s what sperm-donors are for
        Me: That’s not natural
        Les: Get with the times

        I guess “un-natural” is the times we’re living in.
        Poor kid.

    Hate to be a big old meanie but you sort of have to note that had this woman went about this in a more traditional fashion she would have seen what was coming. So to speak. This means she could have prevented it from happening. Sorry, but sometimes you pay unintended consequences for your life choices.

  • none of your business

    She obviously did not write the complaint, her attorney did. They could not just come right out and talk about the problems of 2 White women raising a mixed race child from a sperm bank. That is 2 major problems right there. They cannot move to a diverse community with good schools. First there are no decent schools in diverse communities. Second as a light skinned child with a White Mother she will be harassed, bullied and beaten. They will need the money to send her to a private school with very very few blacks.
    They deserve a lot of compensation much of which will have to be spent on private schooling and burglar alarms if they move to a diverse community.
    If they went to Sears and bought a steel finish microwave and opened the box and found a black or White one, they could return it but this is a human being.
    I know most conservatives hate tort lawyers because of brainwashing by the medical and business community, but I hope she wins big because of the principle of liability.
    Just as Drs and hospitals became more careful when injured and dead patients won big settlements, so will sperm banks become super careful if this sperm bank has to pay big bucks for their stupid mistake that resulted in a mixed race child whose Mother and sperm donor never intended to be a mixed race child.
    It is one thing for some brainwashed stupid White woman to get knocked up by a black man. It is quite another for a White woman who intended to buy expensive White sperm and pay substantial fees and get what she did not order.
    Then there is the child. She did not ask to be born and the sperm bank is directly responsible for the problems she have growing up as a mixed race child raised by a White Mother. The girl deserves more money than the Mother given that if Mommy sends her to a diverse school she will have to endure 12 years of bullying.
    Child is beautiful? So what, all 2 year olds are cute.
    Both Mother and Child should get a huge settlement as much as to force sperm banks to give women the sperm they selected and paid for as to pay for private school tuition.

    • Mary

      Correct, regardless of the circumstances surrounding this drama, the sperm bank screwed up colossally, and they need to pay. Period. No need for racial melodrama.
      They simply did not deliver the product that was ordered. This remains true even if the parents love the child and regard her as the cutest little mulatto in Ohio.

    The hag and her ‘wife’ with the black baby would be the first to yell racism at people like us who’ve basically been saying what they are saying now – without ever mentioning hating anyone. So it is funny to see how they really, truly feel. NIMBY, Not In MY BackYard. Can’t say I have much sympathy for either of these two. Another thing, if I was in their shoes, which I would never be, I would not make one change to my own white life and do everything other than painting the child white. The kid would not be fluent in Ebonics which now she will, thanks to these too idiots.
    It’s enlightening to see how libs really feel deep inside in their hearts about blacks, isn’t it. And all I can say about the writer – actually, all three but especially the writer – is that “Liberalism is a mental disorder”.

    I would not be surprised if some social justice warrior decided that this lesbian couple needed a halfrican to enrich their lives. I would be seeking much more than fifty thousand in damages. I would also be giving this halfrican up for adoption as soon as the check cleared.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    And the reason for it is blacks are looking to sabatoge anything and everything they can in order to get back at whitey.

    And if you’re asking, “To get back for what?”

    Anything they can think of, because they’re truly clinically paranoid.
