I have always admired African women who do not seem to have an issue marrying interracially. I have learned that African women sometimes get a bad reputation for any number of reasons and it seems unfair. But that does not stop them from finding love across racial lines. I also love to see when a white African man finds love with a black African woman like Namibian Sybre found his Charity from Botswana. Considering the fact that Apartheid was not so long ago in the entire region, their union speaks volumes.
I am saddened to see the amount of vitriol Derek Luke recently received about his Latina wife Sophia after posting their photo on Instagram. They were high school sweethearts and have been married for 17 years. That is quite an accomplishment and they are to be congratulated.

Walking down the aisle, between my two mothers – Rose, the woman who’d given birth to me, and Renee Loux who’d adopted me, I couldn’t have been happier. My identical twin sister Teyolla, Tee for short, and I had talked about this day from as early as I could remember. My only sadness was that Tee, 20, couldn’t watch me get married, because she was waiting outside the door, preparing to get hitched herself.

Half and Halves, tells the story of Punjabi-Mexican intermarriages in California at the start of the 20th century.
California has long been a land of possibility. From the Gold Rush to the promise of fertile farmland, people from all over the world have flocked here for the chance at a new life. That has created some unexpected immigrant communities. One of those happened in the state’s Central and Imperial Valleys. In the early 20th century, Punjabi men came to the area, by way of Canada, to plant fruit trees, hoping to make their fortune in peaches and plums.
I was almost blown away by this story. I say almost because having researched vintage interracial marriage and relationships, I have seen so many similar stories except that it is usually between black and whites. I am still a sucker for happy endings. Read the amazing story of Helen Gladys (Emery) Aoki and Gunjiro Aoki, pictured in March 1909. She lost her citizenship for marrying a Japanese man as interracial marriage was prohibited even in Washington State at this time. Fascinating and awesome love. The story told by great niece Brenda Wong Aoki at History Link.org
