In the United States, June 12 is National Loving Day, commemorating the date 50 years ago when the Supreme Court unanimously ruled to disband all anti-miscegenation laws. In the decision, Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote, “We have consistently denied the constitutionality of measures which restrict the rights of citizens on account of race.” Liber Oz says “Man has the right to love as he will.”
