Summary
There is no teasing apart what interracial couples think of themselves from what society shows them about themselves. Following on her earlier ground-breaking study of the social worlds of interracial couples, the author considers the larger context of social messages, conveyed by the media, that inform how we think about love across the color line. Examining a range of media, from movies to music to the web, this work offers an informative and provocative account of how the perception of interracial sexuality as "deviant" has been transformed in the course of the 20th century and how race relations are understood today
