At the end of the play, we are left with the sense that a new era of integration has begun—the birth of which is personified in the relationship blossoming between two of the main characters, a white woman and a black man.Jump forward 50 years, and back into the real world, and one place we have notably failed to see integration is in sexual relationships.It's Thanksgiving weekend in Canada, where I live, and for a change of pace I drove up Prince Edward Island to see the musical "Hairspray" at the Charlottetown Festival.As you may already know, Hairspray is set in 1962 and takes a rather cheerful look at segregation in the world of entertainment.For example, if we randomly assigned people in the U. to their marriage partners, we would expect 44% of marriages to be between two people of different races.According to the 2000 Census, however, only 4% of marriages fit that description.A great way to break the ice and a perfect excuse to talk to anyone you fancy.
(Even though to the eye, I'm black.) I can tend to be shy at first, but will come out once I get to know you.
