Even before the era of Kylie and Lip Venom, as a kid I remember people fawning over how luxuriously plump Angelina Jolie’s lips were.
However, since little ink was spilled on the topic of interracial marriage before separate races even lived amongst each other, I will not be going back terribly far in history, just to the seventeenth century and onward.
The first set of facts which are remarkably significant is the of earlier times.
Allegedly, the only reason people would be opposed to marrying those of other races is because they have hatred or animosity for other races.
It is because of this allegation that any opposition to miscegenation has been thoroughly and censoriously silenced.
Here are some screencaps via Twitter: Comments included: “WTF are these lips?
” and “Unfollows.” One person asked if those were Jay Z’s lips, another compared her lips to a fish’s. Since these images went viral, the comment section has been flooded with support of the woman pictured, so it’s hard to find any other disparaging comments.Legislation and criminalization are not things which just appear among a people; they require a substantive consent of the populace (or apathy).Without popular consent, laws will inevitably change.The subject is presented today as if it were quite obvious that interracial marriage is both permissible and positively good.It is tacitly assumed that everyone has thought the same way in history, except for a few evil men who thought otherwise due to racial bigotry and especially to “ignorance,” as the accusation often goes.Black women are constantly stuck in a messy beauty paradox.
