Interracial marriage was legalized 44 years ago June 12th. In Loving v Virginia, the Supreme Court ruled that laws banning interracial marriage were unconstitutional. What does the interracial relationship landscape look like today?
The last year provided mixed news on interracial relationships:
*The New York Times reports significant increases in biracial kids in Deep South
*UC Berkeley study shows that online dating promotes racism
*Recent Pew Institute study finds almost 15% of new marriages interracial
*Pepsi’s Super Bowl commercial creates controversy about “angry black women” stereotype
Interacting with a wide variety of people daily through her blog and social media, author, blogger, researcher, and former Goldman Sachs analyst JC Davies is in a unique position to discuss the current temperature of interracial relationships. Her new book, I GOT THE FEVER (feverbook.com), explores the dynamics of interracial dating in today's diverse world, within a wide range of cultures including Latino, Asian, Black, Jewish, and Indian. And because JC Davies is herself white, she often finds herself a controversial figure for discussing racial issues.
-- Are interracial relationships accepted or is there still a lot of work to do?
-- How common are interracial relationships today, really?
-- How can we approach racial dialogue in an otherwise seemingly "post-racial" world?
--With some cultural groups showing major growth, what does the future hold for interracial relationships?
--What do young people think about interracial dating?
