Yaffa’s short memoir of an interracial relationship with her then White boyfriend, Karl Frederick Schultz. The good, bad, and shadiness that she recalls they encountered among family and friends when discussing plans to marry. What color will our children be? came into importance when debating about their future offspring racial identity. In conclusion, Yaffa’s thought-provoking insight into her early adult life.
The question she asks herself today, “If I could do it all over again, what would I have done differently?” This book gives anyone who is in a similar situation, another perspective of how to overcome stumbling blocks that may be presented in their relationship. Though interracial families have evolved in the 21st century, there are still those in dating courtships, close-knit families ties, and society who have narrow-minded views. Yaffa’s short nonfiction can help educate others to be aware of the challenges faced when embarking upon an interracial union. Not to allow bigotry to win but cast it off so that everyone can prosper as human beings.
“A stirring a very personal account of navigating interracial relationships in America of the early ’90s. Yaffa weaves an emotional story of her first boyfriend, Karl; and how they discovered so much about themselves and the world around them. Their personal struggle for acceptance, for themselves as well as families and coworkers, can provide a path toward love for all those who are in a different kind of relationship: interracial, mixed-religion, and differing expressions.”
