Reading your post made me recall the song "You're an Embarrassment" by the London group Madness back in the 90s - lyrics here. I liked the song but never knew what it was about, but they had the band on a local London radio programme last month and Suggs wrote it about a white female cousin of his who became pregnant with a mixed-race baby. Did the feelings last long he was asked. No, they disappeared immediately the new white grandparents saw the new-born baby, who apparently is now in college and doing fine with a lot of affection from all the family. Which backs up what you say. Nice song too.
