      Peggy Pascoe writes a history of miscegenation laws in the United States and their role as a national project that laid the foundation for a broader project of white supremacy. Pascoe argues that more visible forms of white supremacy such as segregation, voting, or violence masked the central importance of miscegenation laws in creating a kind of legal laboratory for the state to produce race. Prof. Lemire ends her book with the obligatory assertion that race is a mirage: “The idea that there is a special kind of sex that is ‘inter-racial’ is just as much a racist social fiction as the idea there is something namable as ‘miscegenation.’”.
