Interracial Couples, Love has no boundaries
I say this a lot about me about love having no boundaries.
I have feelings for a married lady that is a quantum entanglement
type of mess! She ran over my foot once it's love!
She's not norm and so the point of support and love to
be the therapist. There is a reason to be a married ladies other.
To make better not worse as real love is not selfish, pushing
her back to her husband a better person.
My "Old Lady" is a old lady 72 I'm 48!
Support because life is short 70 comes in no time at all!
I first met her when she was 57...Boom now 72!
We have issues sometimes like when at the hospital
people wants to know who I am... "He's not my son!"
I am Polyamorous so I don't break up with anyone!
But the point is the point of love! Treating people fair.
Interracial Couples? Well we all really are the same down to that
point that does matter!
~~~~~“Runs of homozygosity” or ROH are regions of the genome where
the copies inherited from our parents are identical. This creates a run of
homozygous variants, from tens of thousands to millions of letters in length.
The two DNA copies are identical because our parents have inherited them
from a common ancestor at some point in the past, recently in the case of a
cousin marriage, but in fact we all carry ROH, because going
far enough back in time we are all related.
~~~~~30 Interracial Couples Show Why Their Love Matters
This country didn’t always think so, however, since it wasn’t until 50 years ago that it became legal for mixed race couples to marry.
On June 12, 1967, the Supreme Court struck down state laws which banned individuals of different races from marrying in the Loving v. Virginia decision. Monday marks the 50th annual celebration of this progressive milestone, aptly named “Loving Day.”
“I see Richard and Mildred Loving as strong yet soft-spoken heroes for me, my family, and generations to come,” Loving Day founder Ken Tanable wrote of the couple who helped make this decision possible. “They simply loved each other and wanted equality for all. This basic notion of celebrating love continues to be just as important today. I strongly encourage everyone to learn more about them and the gift they left us. Through knowledge, shared stories, and support, we can build a community that believes love is love.”
To celebrate Loving Day, HuffPost Black Voices asked its readers who are in interracial marriages and relationships to share their love with us. We received 30 responses from couples echoing Tanable’s sentiments and telling why their love matters. Their love for each other is absolutely heart warming.
~~~~~We Are Not Unusual Anymore’: 50 Years of Mixed-Race Marriage in U.S.
OAKLAND, Calif. — For their first date, in 1949, Leon Watson and Rosina Rodriquez headed to the movie theater. But each entered separately. First went Ms. Rodriquez, a fair-skinned woman who traces her roots to Mexico. Mr. Watson, who is black, waited several minutes before going in and sitting next to her.
“We always did it,” Mr. Watson said one recent afternoon. “They looked at you like you were in a zoo. We just held our heads high and kept going. If we knew there would be a problem, we stayed away from it.”
When they married in Oakland in 1950, mixed-race marriage had just become legal in California, the result of a lawsuit that reached the State Supreme Court. They are among the oldest living interracial couples legally married in the United States. It would be nearly two decades before all couples like them across the country were allowed to marry.
On Monday, they will mark the 50th anniversary of Loving v. Virginia, the United States Supreme Court case that overturned antimiscegenation laws nationwide. Mildred and Richard Loving, a black woman and a white man, had been sentenced to a year in a Virginia prison for marrying each other. The case would serve as a basis for the Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex marriage.
