Australian Program Explores Interracial Marriages

Australian Program Explores Interracial Marriages

Having never visited Australia, I can’t really speculate on what it’s like there in terms of diversity and the openness of interracial dating and marriage. Certainly there must be some ethnic diversity there since you have aboriginal natives in the Outback who have been there for quite some time (and again I’m showing my lack of knowledge on Australia). Beautiful vistas, great location on the map, lots of global warming probably coming their way, but other than that, I honestly don’t know much about them or what to expect.Queen_Sabine_Goddess_Mondestin

According to this link, there’s a program in Australia, or rather a network it seems called SBS. On that network there’s a regular program called Insight and the article (which is linked to) we read is referring to an episode of the Insight program that discusses interracial dating and interracial marriage in Australia.

Since it’s not on YouTube or Vimeo (that we can find), we can’t copy and paste it into this space but if you’d like to watch this Aussie show and let us know what you think of it, and how “insight” differs from US perceptions of interracial dating and interracial marriage, please do so. We’d love to hear from our readers!

 

 

 

Here’s the link to watch the program. It’s approximately 51 minutes in length.

Was Opposition to Interracial Marriage Motivated by Christianity?

Was Opposition to Interracial Marriage Motivated by Christianity?

Good question!

In this brief article, the author posits that opposition to interracial marriage was (at least to some extent) motivated by Christian propaganda, citing the books Race Mixing: Black-White Marriage in Postwar America by Renee Romano and Tell the Church I Love my Wife: Race, Marriage and Law – An American History by Peter Wallenstein and Interracial Intimacy: The Regulation of Race and Romance by Rachel Moran; all of these sounding very interesting if you have time to disseminate them all equally.
