A very personal take on interracial and “taboo” romance from Soulstice:
From the E-mail:
“Strange Kinda Love” is a song about universal love and tolerance. Since it was originally released, it’s won 4 songwriting contests, including the Billboard World Song Contest. In it, I reflect on my experience as part of an interracial couple and recall that it wasn’t long ago that my wife and I couldn’t have gotten married in the US. Today’s “free love” struggle centers around the LGBT community and same-sex marriage. I’m happy to report that since I wrote this song, 5 states and the District of Columbia now issue same-sex marriage licenses and 5 more provide equivalent spousal rights. We’ve got a long way to go, but we’re moving in the right direction.
