From a treatise on Loving v. Virginia:
So when white Richard Loving, age seventeen, began courting "colored" Mildred Jeter, age eleven, their budding romance drew little attention from either the white or the black communities.

Well, no one cares if there's an 11-year-old getting banged. Just not if the 11-year-old is a different race than the one banging her. Then, that's a WHOLE different story.
