Life Through the Eyes of an Interracial Couple
This book goes into depth about this couple's over 23 years marriage, as they share things never before discussed by any interracial couple, or any other author writing on race relations. In this book The Whites tell you their own story in their descriptive narrative, but they also include many color, and black and white photos and articles about their family and their work. They speak about Singleness, Teen Pregnancy, being an unwed mother of 3, but they want to bring you into their world to feel what they felt, so you can read about what actions they took in the midst of the chaos of the 1992 Los Angles Race Riots. They share their opinion on the racial hypocrisy of Religious Leaders and Politicians like Dr. Dobson who may be a main reason why so many interracial couples believe in others more than God. Ruth and Steve tell about the racism surrounding the OJ Simpson vs Mark Fuhrman and Dianne Watson vs Ward Connerly matters. They talk about the racist trials of Kobe Bryant, and young Marcus Dixon, and shocking revelation of Senator Strom Thurmond's Biracial Daughter. Steve and Ruth explain how the News Media, Entertainment Industry, and others continue to use heavily charged racist terms like "African American" (referring to Blacks skinned people only), "Minority" etc. and how they feel celebrities like Halle Berry, Mariah Carey, Diana Ross, Tiger Woods, Sidney Poitier and others may have ignored the Multiracial children in society. They speak about racism in the Education system and the Census that do not have a Multiracial Category so every one can acknowledge all of their heritage. Also they address the racism with some School Board Of Directors, Administrators, and Teachers. TheWhites have spoken on the National Talk Show Circuit and in National Print as well as for a San Diego State University, and discuss their opinion on Michael Moore (of Fahrenheit 9/11), The National Black Caucus vs Real America and on Same Sex Marriages vs Interracial Marriages the Civil Rights Issue, and Brown vs The Board Of Education. The Whites are very proud that Former First Lady Barbara Bush was the inspiration behind their actions to move America towards A Colorblind Society. To check out more see www.aplaceforusnational.com
