Now more than ever, we cannot ignore issues like racism, or pretend that they don’t exist.
I hope this project can contribute to a more sophisticated discussion of race in America in the 21st century.
In my reporting I met a college cheerleader who told me that when she walked around with her boyfriend people stared at them because she was white and her boyfriend was black.

Personally, I don’t believe in love, and I think that is because of my upbringing in China.
Even after living aboard for the past four years, I have not been able to escape this influence from the “big society” and the five thousand years of history.
In America, as we continue to see the influx of people from all different cultures, who have all different colors of skin, it is imperative that we search the Scriptures so see how we should live.
" In accordance with the Old Testament teaching, Paul is simply prohibiting believers from intimate fellowship with unbelievers. There are absolutely no grounds in either the Old Testament or the New Testament to prohibit interracial marriages.The beauty of God's judgment is that he is “no respecter of persons” (Acts ), and thus we are to judge the same way (1 Timothy ; James ).You see, God has created all things, including the color of our skin (Genesis 1-2).Sometime after Adam and Eve fell, God established a covenant with Abraham.This covenant was intended to be international in scope—irrespective of cultural boundaries or skin color, that through Abraham's offspring (“seed”) all the nations of the Earth would be blessed (Genesis 12:1-4).I was intrigued about the topic because China doesn’t have a lot of interracial couples.
