Jack & Diane Was Interracial Song

John Mellencamp revealed that when he originally wrote Jack and Diane, “Jack was not a football star, Jack was an African American.” He said, “In 1982, when I turned the song in to the record company, they went, 'Whoa, can't you make him something other than that?'" #PopNews
