We (and by we, I mean me and probably many of you) are at a very peculiar age. It’s an age where I look at my driver’s license (usually when I’m being carded) and cock my head to the side, because I realize I’m a lot older than I feel I am. This feeling is usually abruptly interrupted by the moments when you realize how young you actually are, usually by being schooled by someone much older.

<cue coonery> Really?? You mean I’z can go pee in yo HOUSE? AFTA you marry me n’ muh missus??? Well HOT DAMN!! <end coonery> Well, if you want to get technical, Judge Keith Bardwell really meant that his concern was for any baby that might result from the union (you are TOO kind, your honor). He believes that the offspring of such marriages fall into a societal void; He had already come to the conclusion that most of black society does not readily accept offspring of such relationships, and neither does white society, he said.
