children of dune - leto 1

does this say something about education?

A fantastic post on the origin of the word miscegenation and the world that surrounded both its inception and the laws that used it.

What surprises me vaguely is I remember that being a vocabulary word in high school history class, specifically related to the proliferation of the law after the Civil War.

A link list of posts on the subject. For those who ignored their flist until, er, a few hours ago? zvi_likes_tv posts here about her email exchange with daily_deviant regarding the use of miscegenation for their prompt. It's interesting reading.
