anti-miscegenation 2009

Some of us haven’t come very far….

A recent picture on the cover of Go! magazine, a regular section in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The photo of a couple kissing corresponded to the story “The 7 Best Places To Smooch.” 

Many readers did not seem interested in the kissing locations.  They could not see past that insidious, hideous photo. Some reader comments:

From 1buschstadiumplz: “Haven’t read the story but dont like to see blacks and whites kissing;”

From taxpayer came this remark: ”This doesn’t surprise me at all. Libs take every opportunity they can to shove miscegnation in our faces. Now that TV has to show blacks in every commercial, notice that they are always posed beside a blonde woman. Not a brunette, a blonde. Its done for shock value. Sickening that a once proud newspaper would resort ot this. Joe Pulitzer is turning over in his grave in shame.”

Reader greggh tried a middle-of-the-road approach:  “I’m not judging the concept of biracial couples at all, but in a city as racially polarized as St. Louis, I’m shocked that the PD would go so out of its way to be so gratuitously provacative. This completely undercut the message of the article.”

Gratuitously provocative?! And all that other stuff!? How can this be in this lovely “post-racial” society we’ve cultivated? Oh dear…

Here are a few provocative photos I found on the internet. Viewer discretion is advised.

  1. I can’t believe “miscegenation” is still used outside discussions on history.

    Luckily, there’s other people pointing out the stupidity of such comments.

  2. I applaud the fact that you insist on shedding light on the fact that this sort of ignorance continues to exist. Like it or not…keep crankin ’em out. 🙂

  3. lol! I was just watching The Lovings! The word miscegenation came out of the mouths of judge Carrito and Brazile and it sound absolutley laughable.Its a stupid made up word by the white men after the Civil war to keep the white race WHITE!
    As recently as 40yrs ago a Richmond hospital prevented a native American woman from putting Indian on her son’s b.c and said she could not take her baby home until she changed it to “COLORED”.
    The same was done to me in NOLA when my baby girl was born 27 yrs ago.They kept that b.c from me for 2 yrs,until my husband personally went to the V.S. ofc. The black women in the hospital was abiding by that 1 DROP rule!!
    By the way Im a transplant Virginian(from PA),and they still push the race issue in the courts,birth certificates and at the DMV for drivers lic.The authorities don’t ask u,they just assume,cause they still hold true to that 1DROP LAW..after all it was created in the heart of the confederacy!
