Does Loving day mean anything to you?
There are so many things we interracial couples take for granted. If you live in a town or state where being in an interracial relationship doesn’t churn people’s stomachs, acknowledge that because once upon a time, there were states where being able to just BE as an interracial couple was NEVER tolerated… Some still experience some of that today.
I believe most of us are familiar with the Loving vs. Virginia story. And I believe most of us celebrate and recognize Loving day as the day of LIBERATION of LOVE!
Thanks to the Lovings, interracial dating and marriage is nothing out of the ordinary – it is an acceptable way of life. Thanks to the Lovings, most of us in interracial relationships no longer have to worry about the awkward stares or crimes of hate against interracial coupling. Thanks to the Lovings, interracial marriage is a crime NO MORE! Thanks to the Lovings, we have an interracial dating site to promote interracial coupling.

We all are unique. We all have our reasons for celebrate Loving Day. Some of us may not care much about the day all anti-miscegenation laws were struck down because we were never governed by such laws in the first place. I choose to see this day, not just as a celebration of interracial marriage, but also as a celebration of respect for one another, tolerance, equality and most of all, multiculturalism.
So lets all join hands as we celebrate the 45th anniversary of the day interracial marriage was legalized by sharing with each other why and how we choose to celebrate this day in honor of a couple who had to be jailed for "Loving" one another! Share your personal experiences and thoughts about what this day means to you.
HAPPY LOVING DAY!!!
