A special Friday posting. woo hoo!

Thanks to Henry Oyama and others like him, there is little need to use the word miscegenation.

The interbreeding of different races or of persons of different racial backgrounds.
Cohabitation, sexual relations, or marriage involving persons of different races.
A mixture or hybridization: "There was musical miscegenation at a time when segregation was the common rule" (Don McLeese).
//-->[Latin miscēre, to mix; see meik- in Indo-European roots + genus, race; see genə- in Indo-European roots + -ation.]
//--> mis·ceg'e·na'tion·al adj.
