The law that in South Africa made it a crime to have sex across the colour bar. As an attempt to legislate racial morality, it was part of petty apartheid It was passed in 1950, and was repealed before the 1994 election.

In 1994 I loved a beautiful girl with brown skin. We were so aware that even 2 years ago this love would have been a crime. When we held hands in public people would look twice, and we would both smile.

It lasted more than a year, but neither of us were ready to settle down. The breakup was messy. She seemed to believe that arguments were a constructive way to resolve differences, and I see them as differences in themself.
