The New York Times Opinion Editorial shares short stories from current day interracial couples. The pro anti-miscegenation law argument that “these statutes serve a legitimate, legislative objective of preventing sociological, psychological evils which attend interracial marriages” really got my attention. The New York Times gathered stories that are current and honest.

I wish I could say the statement is entirely unfounded. The statement true, as is what he said next: “Intermarried families are subjected to much greater pressures and problems than those of the intra-married and that the state’s prohibition of interracial marriage for this reason stands on the same footing as the prohibition of polygamous marriage, or incestuous marriage or the prescription of minimum ages at which people may marry.” Ok, he totally lost me with polygamous and incestuous and statutory, but what came before that? And with everything that’s going on around here these days, there is no denying that. What I hope we will all do is realize it wasn’t the marriages that needed banning, it was the society who’s psychology told it that there was a hierarchy to maintain and a gulf so wide as to never fathom crossing it. I’ll be honest and admit that I only read the black and white couples because, while I’m being honest, Anti-miscegenation laws were primarily put in place to prohibit black people from marrying white people. And to prevent tragic offspring like me from upsetting the system with our all-encompassing, theory-disproving, potentially-unifying selves by just, you know, existing.

There was a parade with all these floats, and in some ways it seemed like a more integrated community than I’ve ever seen. What was the reaction when you published photographs of the homecoming in ?

They said, “You better go back to where you came from, people here — we won’t be able to protect you.

People here will take the law into their own hands.” , and other trips were super-scary.

I was there a lot when I was pregnant, and that’s when I was most scared.

I was attacked by the sheriff before I was pregnant, filming and photographing the homecoming parade.
