Left-Wing Anti-Miscegenism

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's racist (and token) black columnist Eugene Kane (http://www.jsonline.com/news/metro/nov99/kanecol107110699a.asp) is a prime example of the "left-wing anti-miscegenism" described in Emily Monroy's excellent guest editorial in "Interracial Voice" (http://www.webcom.com/intvoice/emily2.html). Criticisms of Kane should also be sent to the letters page of the Journal-Sentinel: JSEDIT@onwis.com

An example of a young person being totally confused by left-wing anti-miscegenism is the case of Salon Magazine guest columnist Lillie Wade, a 19-year-old college student. She believes that interracial marriage is a bad idea because it "can cause hostility between the races" (http://www.salon.com/books/it/school/1999/11/10/nazi/index/html). How did she come to that conclusion? All she had to do is read raving denunciations of race-mixing by so-called "people of color" in the mainstream media and on the Internet.

    A.D. Powell was incorrect in gauging my views of interracial marriage. I am support many activities that can cause hostility, such as sit-ins, civil-rights marches, and the American Revolution. Because something can cause hostility does not mean that it is wrong. But it should be admitted, and interracial marriage should not be promoted as a cure-all for racial problems.
