    I remember my mother, a schoolteacher herself, saying that it was okay for people of different races to marry, but that they shouldn't because not only was it hard on the kids, but because the kids just weren't very good looking.

    Curiously, one of her colleagues was mixed African American and white; her husband looked pretty African American.  Their son Kevin was one of the most beautiful young men I'd ever seen.  

    Couldn't counter my mom's argument with Kevin, however--coming out like that would not have been a good idea.
