Forty years today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously against state anti-miscegenation laws. I’m too tired to analyze this right now, but I wanted to acknowledge that I’m the child of a mixed-race marriage, and though I rarely think of it in this way, I guess you could say I’m in a mixed-race marriage myself. I’m curious–how many of you are of mixed race or are married to someone of a different race?
I’ve always felt pride in my mix of Asiany-White goodness. In general celebration, I’m linking to this music video that is a collaboration between white gaijin musicians in Japan and Japanese shamisen players. It’s hard to go wrong with rock shamisen and fox-magic.
