"While it may seem negligible on the outside, interracial marriage and dating, is a hot topic and somewhat of a taboo, still, and quite controversial."
Loving Day commemorates June 12, 1967 when the US Supreme Court made it a legal right to love a person of any race. Before that decision interracial couples could be legally separated and/or punished by their state governments. In the state of Oregon (my current residence) there were laws from 1862-1951 making marriage between specific interracial couples null and void. Join a celebration happening in your city or have one of your own.
