I invite you to read, comment, and reach out. I have long believed that close interracial relationships, including romantic relationships, are essential to true racial reconciliation and ultimately, racial equity. Reasonable minds disagree on whether and to what extent cross-racial relationships are appropriate, much less necessary, for true racial healing.
The owners of an event hall in northeastern Mississippi apologized on Tuesday for refusing to host a wedding for an interracial couple — an exchange captured in a widely viewed video — saying that they incorrectly believed that interracial marriage went against their Christian beliefs. But then the couple received a message, according to Ms. Welch, 24, said she went to the venue with her mother on Saturday to inquire about the refusal.
