But, shockingly enough, it is only a fairly recent view that interracial marriage should be encouraged.While the general rarity of biracial individuals today should immediately inform us that interracial marriages are relatively new in history, it is still helpful to look into the stated opinions of men of the past.I have in mind Muhammad Ali, the famous black boxer.
For example, when confronted with an argument against interracial marriage, it is not uncommon that an advocate of miscegenation will ask in reply, “But wouldn’t you rather your daughter marry a Christian of another race than an unbeliever of the same race?
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.
Despite such censoring — or perhaps, because of it — it is vital that we thoroughly understand the topic, rather than passively accepting anything with which our unbelieving culture and media might try to inculcate us.
Before venturing into the subject itself, it would be profitable to understand what others, especially Christians, have thought of miscegenation.
