Fact of the...Day! (7/27)

Anti-miscegenation laws in the U.S. were aimed at racially segregating marriage and couples, more specifically those between whites and Asians. These laws essentially showed how society frowned upon interracial relationships. For example, the Cable Act, established in 1922, revoked the citizenship of a woman if she married a foreign man. The phrase "alien ineligible to citizenship" frequently came up to target Asians in these marriages.
