A concise, compelling, and timely examination of the history of inter-racial marriage and race relations in America. The section on colonial history was especially surprising and interesting. Cashing deftly uses the 1967 Richard and Mildred Loving vs Virginia case which resulted in the Supreme Court overturning Virginia's anti-miscegenation laws as the basis for her examination. Her outlook is ultimately optimistic and her premise that love (romantic and platonic) is the strongest antidote to white supremacy is astute and persuasive. A great read!
