When it was revealed that Spock and Uhuru (spelling) had a romance, a majority of the audicence clapped. The fellow to my left and right did not.

Trek hopes that by the 23rd century these viewpoints will be a thing of the past. That a Vulcan and an Earthling being in love matters not, and that everyone has a voice and something valuable to contribute to a cause.

J.J. Abrams and crew "gets it." Good job!
I wanna see it with your audience!
