Celebrating multi-racial families

Looks like I have a new holiday to celebrate. June 12 is the anniversary of a Supreme Court decision that struck down the country's final Jim Crow laws, allowing inter-racial couples to marry and cohabitate. This decision was only a few years before I was born.

It's strange to think that only a brief period of time has elapsed where it was illegal for Blacks and Whites to get married and just one generation before, my daughter would have been the product of a union that was illegal in several states until 1967.

I am glad that the laws have changed. And I think that many people have changed their attitudes about inter-racial coupling. But I think we still have a long way to go.
