The #BlackLivesMatter development has started across the country dissents and has brought issues to light worldwide about the unequal treatment of dark individuals by police in the United States. Tuning in to the voices from the development — and gaining from the passing of Eric Garner and the arrangement of different passings of unarmed dark men — obviously two issues should be tended to: racial profiling and police utilization of over the top power. Both cross paths with the U.S. Constitution, yet stay normal practices in law implementation, again and again with grievous outcomes.

Historically, the United States is known for their segregation and discrimination of races. For one, the nation is familiar with anti-miscegenation laws that were created to separate individuals from race mixing. These laws limited citizens from marrying outside of their race, and the way of enforcing was jail time and exiling the couple from the state. Virginia charged couples severely with fornication if they were to find cohabitation between the two individuals. Not only this, but Virginia imposed the laws to prevent miscegenation, but for those who disregarded the law, they were faced with barbarous consequences.

The United States Supreme Court invalidated laws prohibiting interracial marriage. Although one of them is a fictional story while for the other one is an article on a real case that happened. After a close reading of Loving V. Virginia and the fictional story Desiree 's Baby by Kate Cho both couples react to interracial marriage in a way that demonstrates race relations don’t allow them to be happy and they believe they are as equal as anybody else and deserve to live how they choose to live.
