Movie about interracial marriages or dating taylor and chase dating
While I have yet to see this latest rendition of the Lovings’ story in its entirety, I believe it’s an important story to tell, and at this point I can only hope that it’s a story well told.
Naturally, there are other issues I could bring up in relation to this film.
Laws preventing interracial marriage really just applied to white people.
The creators of anti-miscegenation laws couldn’t care less about the coupling of various other races and ethnic groups.
It wasn’t until the United States ended the formal chattel slave system that authorities wanted to prevent the birth of more mixed-race children, when those children were no longer viewed in terms of their potential profit to white slaveholders but were instead viewed as symbolic threats to white supremacy.
If white supremacy says that blacks, particularly black women, are subhuman, then the symbolic resonance of whites and blacks, particularly white men and black women like the Lovings, belonging to the same nuclear family shakes the foundation of white domination.
This is evident by the rampant rape of black women by white men and the numerous mixed race children that resulted.
For example, Brittany Slatton’s book (2014) concisely depicts the intense levels of misogynoir in the United States.
In the midst of a contentious and high stakes political season and eruptions of hateful violence, I’m hoping this movie gets the attention it deserves.

The laws were purely about maintaining white domination.
