Summary: In this study of "inter-racial" literature, the author examines: why, in the US, a "white" woman can give birth to a "black" baby, but a "black" woman will never give birth to a "white" baby; what makes racial "passing" different from social mobility; and how "miscegenation" is presented as incest.
