Abstract

I am discouraged by the fact that this children’s book uses the image of one civil rights victory — multiracial families like mine and Mildred Loving’s that are headed by heterosexual couples — to tear down families that are perceived as being wrong: families headed by same-sex couples.Yesterday, June 12, marked the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision Loving v. Virginia. In Loving v. Virginia, the court held that bans on interracial marriage were unconstitutional, as they violated both the Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses of the U.S. Constitution.
