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, and was repealed before the 1994
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.
