5.0 out of 5 stars Who read my mail?, March 29, 2003
This review is from: Just Don't Marry One: Interracial Dating, Marriage, and Parenting (Paperback)
This should be a required read for counselors, pastors, and persons considering interracial marriage, as well as their families. It will serve to explode myths, help both biological and adoptive parents, and heal racial divisions.

I liked this book because reading it was like seeing my life on paper. Although having your "mail read" can be an uncomfortable experience--the book raised issues I'd rather forget, or not deal with at all--the confrontation was necessary. Never have I had my frustrations more clearly articulated, my wounds so carefully bound, or my prejudices so carefully confronted and corrected. I laughed out loud while being given excellent advice on how to respond to the curious, and I wept with a Native American brother as his layers of anger were peeled away...I appreciated the authors just calling prejudice what it is so that we all can DEAL with it, and move on to live more meaningful lives.
I have "my" copy and my "loan" copy because this book will serve as an important resource to help me answer my children's questions as well as the questions of those in our circle of influence. I consider it to be one of the most useful additions to my personal library.
