Excellent film dealing with a black basketball star who has a child with a white woman and then sues for the custody of the child. Amazingly, his wife is understanding and wants the child for themselves. What makes the movie so appealing is that the white woman, a tramp in every sense of the word, matures as the situation develops and proves her competency as a mother to the black-looking child.

The story, which really could have emphasized her bimbo way of life, does not and instead becomes a well-worth seeing sociological drama. After the black couple are denied custody, they appeal on the grounds that since the child is black, he would be better off with them for racial reasons. The defense will argue that this reasoning is discriminatory in itself, while admitting that the child will face discrimination in his life. This film takes place in Canada and the ending is worthwhile and quite conciliatory. Enjoy a night in with these popular movies available to stream now with Prime Video.

I hope it's reissued soon. It has unique and engaging characters with more in common than the issue of race. Sep 21, Sonya added it. I re-read this book all the time! May 22, Felicia Glover rated it did not like it.
I did not realize this book was written in It explains he references to the use of pay phones. It is amazing how writers viewed interracial relationships back then and how some authors of today have the ability to fluently write on this subject matter. Jun 14, Valerie Keyes rated it did not like it. I really enjoy reading IR romance novels. This novel was beyond irritating. The main character Leah was the poster child for a doormat. No self esteem, self love or pride. It was made quite obvious very early on in the story that her sister Gail was sleeping with I really enjoy reading IR romance novels.
It was made quite obvious very early on in the story that her sister Gail was sleeping with him right under Leah's nose. To be THAT blind is beyond belief. The relationship that developed with Jason the white cop was also beyond irritating. Geez you would have thought that the world ended.
Much better IR romance stories are available. Sep 08, Cardyn Brooks rated it it was amazing Shelves: Color of Love was the first interracial romance for me where the Black characters were simply complicated human beings with brown skin who had not internalized racism. It's a romance that's simply a good novel about two people and the many obstacles they work to overcome to begin their HEA. I don't usually reread fiction, but I've reread this book more than once along with Linda Howard's Kill and Tell. There was a foreboding sense of suspense throughout the story that led up to a dramatically emotional ending.
I just wish it had included some sort of epilogue with a glimpse into their future. Dec 18, Winter Sophia Rose rated it it was amazing. Intense, Engrossing Beautiful Read! Feb 27, Karen rated it it was amazing. Aug 01, Diamond rated it really liked it Shelves: I finished this long ass read in two days. Take that as you will. It definitely was drama filled and interesting.
I don't like when a character has no backbone. I understand and fully believe that you must forgive and move forward. That being said, I don't know of any woman who would just go along with the regularly scheduled program after finding out she was betrayed in the worst way by someone so close to her. That entire situation was totally unrealistic to me. I darn near put the book down i I finished this long ass read in two days. I darn near put the book down in frustration reading Gail rant and rave with total disregard for Leah's feelings.
So please beware of her annoyance. It's bearable, but you may look crazy talking to yourself about the few choice words you'd say to Gail yourself. Also, I don't believe I ever heard the exact year the story was supposed to be taking place. I guess it was set around the time the book came out because they talk about Jason being in the Vietnam war when he was a young boy.
I like that they didn't make that a point and it was implied.

It's annoying being spoon-fed obvious information. I like to work my brain with the possibilities. I find it heartbreaking that shit like this ever happened. I wouldn't be here if they didn't go in secret dating and marrying each other. I wish they were still alive so I could ask a million questions.
This book really made me think. Going into this book I was already feeling strongly about interracial couples being a thing that's not really written and raved about.
I would like to get more into all kinds of interracial romance because I read a lot of white-on-white and black-on-black stuff. While its nothing wrong, I think it's obvious and realistic that love has no color. I see interracial couples all the time. It's common as heck and I'm glad people don't really talk too much shit about it like how they were in this book. I teared up a little in the middle of it, but the ending was a bawl fest for me. This goes to say I had a strong interest in the characters. Some parts were predictable to me, but not boring at all. Jan 29, Gretchen King rated it it was amazing.
This bar none, is the best love story I've ever read, be it interracial or otherwise. All of Sandra Kitt's books are amazing, but this one - the first - is in my opinion the best. I so wanted this book to be made into a movie back in the day. He's too old for the part now but I think Brad Pitt would do nicely. I find myself re-reading this book every few years when I long for a realistic romance involving a professional bla This bar none, is the best love story I've ever read, be it interracial or otherwise.
I find myself re-reading this book every few years when I long for a realistic romance involving a professional black woman and cannot find anything that comes close. Apr 19, Starr rated it did not like it Shelves: Thought this was going to be a love story.
Good read This was a pretty good book. I think it played a little too much into racial stereotypes, but overall it was a good romance without too much cheesiness or cliches.
Leah Downy has been through a lot in her life. Hiding from life in a relationship based more in convenience than love; existing in the shadow of her vibrant and opinionated sister Gail, and still suffering the effects of a mugging. When she meets Jason Horn, she has no idea what to make of the attractive white man with the sad, haggard eyes. What she does know is, that the more that she tries to ignore him The story, characters, and plot are all run-of-the-mill go Leah Downy has been through a lot in her life.
The story, characters, and plot are all run-of-the-mill good. What really hurts this read is the archaic attitude of "white and black don't mix" that is shoved down readers throats non-stop. The us versus them theme is so pervasive that it is hard to believe that this book is based anywhere near the year It often seems as if the author is writing less to tell a story, and more to make a point.
Leah is a unnecessarily weak character; often allowing herself to be used and abused by all of the "black" people close to her. These people are then allowed to disparage her "healthy" relationship with Jason. Jason is a great leading man. He is in fact too good.
The Color of Love
By the time one gets to know him, one doesn't know whether to have him sainted or knighted. This is a case of a book either trying to hard to prove a point. Or not trying hard enough to tell a story. Feb 12, Ahouse4biswas rated it did not like it. Didn't like it at all. There really wasn't a story here at least not one that interested me. It was tedium all the way through. I found myself sighing in boredom and frustration at this story line, which seemed a bit contrived.

I never met a more tiresome cast of characters, every last one of them. The author foreshadowed this story to the point that I knew way in advance what was about to happen. I kept on reading just to get to the end and be rid of these annoying characters. Oct 18, Rosanita rated it it was ok. I've read a lot of interracial romance books in my time.

Normally, I really like them. This one, not so much. I just don't think you have to make the Black guy in the book a bad person.
By having him be an arse to Jason, that's exactly what Ms. Why is it that Leah wasn't angrier at her sister and the arse? Shawn, currently in Tokyo, Japan , had been teamed with Hype Williams.
