Animation conflict background color?

Animation conflict background color?

I'm using the animate color plugin. 

On the page I'm making, multiple things are animated, all triggered by the hover action. Alright, so I got it set up so when I hover over a certain div, I'm using animate to change the background color. When I stop hovering, the color animates back. 

The problem is, if the background color animation hasn't completed and they hover over something else that animates, the background color stops animating. It just stops. If that makes any sense.

No other animations seem to have this problem, just the background color one.

Is there a way to fix this?
