miscegenation

Depicting interracial love on screen has taken over 70 years for Hollywood to fully achieve.
Hollywood’s tumultuous relationship with interracial love went from banned to Jordan Peele’s "Get Out" going #1 at the box office.
It wasn't Old Navy who taught me this word, but a cyber mob of Twitter users attacking Old Navy. Why did so many people feel the need to attack an All-American clothing retailer?
Missed in Scalia's childish histrionics was his so-called 'originalist' approach for interpreting the Constitution.
The Supreme Court decision, when it happens later this year, is quite likely going to set off an argument within the Republican Party -- or, at the very least, that subset of the party who are running for president.
At the present stage of human civilization, universal mating summons the courage to defy the prohibitive philosophies of racial barriers, caste separations, and color hierarchies.

In both the Proposition 8 case and the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA) case, many are hoping for sweeping rulings that put the subject to rest for all time. Personally, I don't think that's what's going to happen.
Some courts have relied on a "states' rights" argument to bolster the position that Section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional.
