Should races mix?
Should races mix? This is usually the real issue behind interracial marriages. Is it a
question of religion, ethics or scientific nature?
I was shocked one day to find out that some people see being biracial as unethical.
Some do feel that interracial marriages are not unethical but plain sinful. So why do
people see mixing of races as an ethical problem?

According to wikipedia.com an “Interracial marriage is a form of Exogamy”
which is marrying outside of one’s social group. So does that mean that the question
of inequality arises whenever we talk of interracial marriages? I have never
encountered any problem with interracial marriages or families. So if I start making
it an ethical question, then that makes my very existence an ethical question.

Some supremacists label interracial unions unnatural … they imagine that in some
way it's against God’s will. People have even quoted and misinterpreted the Bible
over this. However, if you read of the Bible well, the only type of warning against
interracial marriage is actually a scripture warning believers not to marry non-
believers.

So why should people make who is marrying whom their business? We are all
guaranteed equal rights so marriage between any two people in the U.S. or indeed
anywhere should be of no ethical concern. What was unethical were the laws
against interracial marriages in some States which were abolished at late as the
1950's.
These were laws enforced to keep one race dominant over the others… this was all
political (e.g. Nazi Germany, Chile under the U.N. appointed General Augusto
Pinochet, South Africa under Apartheid, and in many of the Southern states in the
U.S. [Dorfman].)

So it all boils down to one thing … politics and possibly class if you would like to
put it that way. It’s kinda like when you bring your girlfriend home, and your
parents refute your relationship because she is from a poor family. But here is the
thing, there is nothing unethical about interracial unions… its not like you will have
murdered someone by being in an interracial relationship. Its just a personal choice.
So let’s keep it that way.

Of course the races should mix. I think God is getting the last laugh here. You
have Blacks and Whites who have big problems with racism amongst each
other, yet when they get together and make a baby, its one of the most
beautiful creations on earth. God knows what he is doing, and I think he
smiles whenever a beautiful bi-racial child is born

Much ado over nothing. There is nothing keeping us apart except for attitudes
and silly prejudices.

One correction Ria. The laws banning interracial marriage were not
overturned in all states in the 1950's. You're about a decade off.
Richard and Mildred Loving were married in 1958 in Washington D.C.
because their home state of Virginia still upheld the antimiscegenation law
which stated that interracial marriages were illegal. They were married, then
lived together in Caroline County, Virginia. In 1959 they were prosecuted and
convicted of violating the states's antimiscegenation law. They were each
sentenced one year in jail, but promised the sentence would be suspended if
they agreed to leave the state and not return for 25 years. Forced to move,
they returned to Washington D.C. where, in 1963, they initiated a suit
challenging the constitutionality of the antimiscegenation law. In March of
1966, the Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals upheld the law, but in June of
1967, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled the law unconstitutional.
Thus, in 1967 the 16 states which still had antimiscegenation laws on their
books were forced to erase them.
