Once again, what gets conservative Christians all worked up turns out to be quite wrong and just plain bizarre. In the case of the Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church in Kentucky , and its banning of interracial couples from membership and from participating in certain worship activities, it's a return to old, visceral prejudices and insular thinking. Standing on the side-lines, the rest of us believe it's all wrong-headed. We are right. Yet there's great value in delving into the archaeology of these prejudices. What are their sources?

What Does the Bible Say About Interracial Marriage?
The country has a long way to go in terms of racial discourse, period. In the case of interracial dating, there are still huge stereotypes, misconceptions, and presumptions about what it means to date someone with a different race. So much of the discourse surrounding interracial relationships seems to center on black and white couplings. These are the images we see most in the media -- cis white men with black women, or cis black men with white women. But we should bear in mind that there are all kinds of couplings in the interracial dating world that aren't acknowledged nearly as much, and that interracial can mean a black woman with an Asian man. Sometimes, interracial couples may not even "look" like interracial couples -- some multiracial people can read as "racially ambiguous," or be mistaken for a certain race or ethnicity that they don't identify with.
