Assimilation

This story is about a woman who is bored with being wed to a white man. She wants any type of relationship with men of different races. Her husband, was in love with a white woman from his past. In the end they both realize that they love each other unconditionally and never really wanted to leave each other. My agenda item: Have interracial relationships become more socially acceptable in today's society?

Notes on the State of Virginia

Honestly I was very bored with this essay. Jefferson just went on about the differences between blacks and whites. Can someone explain this quote to me, I was very confused by it. "The slave, when made free, might mix with, without staining the blood of his master. But with us a second is necesary, unknown to history. When, freed he is to be removed beyond the reason of mixture."I guess my agenda item for this piece is; why are people of different races seen as inferior to whites?
