    I don't know about you guys, but I laughed when I read this, and I feel less "alone" now that I see other people are getting denied marriage too.

    A white is CHOOSING to marry a black, therefore it should not be protected as a right!

    Exactly, they should be born together, joined at the hip like the righteous and god-fearing Christians of Alabama. Only then can it be a holy matrimony. Ugh! The South kills me.

    ahahah I was in my bathroom today when my mom saw that on the computer.

    Mom- Kevin!
    Me-what?
    Mom-What's Interracial (my moms first language is german)
    Me-ahahaha
    Mom-What?
    Me- It's what you and daddy were when you were married
    Mom-which is?
    Me-a black man and a white woman! people from different races!!


    Bardwell said he has discussed the topic with blacks and whites, along with witnessing some interracial marriages. He came to the conclusion that most of black society does not readily accept offspring of such relationships, and neither does white society, he said.

    "There is a problem with both groups accepting a child from such a marriage," Bardwell said. "I think those children suffer and I won't help put them through it."


    (I'm German African american and scottish)
    Been called
    An oreo cookie
    white boy
    wigger
    nigger
    Someone called my mother a nigger lover in front of me when i was little
    Someone told me That just because I'm mixed I think I am better than a black person-from a black person (wtf!)
    (kinda off topic ,but o well lol)
    My dad one day told me that I am black and everyone will view me as black.
    I told Him I'm Biracial and some people think I'm from Puerto Rico,Brazil,Dominican republic , a black Asian mix,a black white mix or just black.

    and to add on to my "Suffering" I'm gay.

    I don't suffer from anything lol. The only people that suffer are the ones that let stupid Igronant people get to them.

    Corrected.
    Wrong 'their.'
    --------
    Any-who, it's about time that people started to feel/see the backlash for banning gay marriage.
    Everyone is starting to become more 'open' about their discriminatory practices.

    Fail. The day is still young. Also, the whole post is sort of redundant since this is being discussed in an earlier post(that I responded to in a more serious manner):

    The year a smart person came from such a relationship becomes the President of United States.

    VERY good point......Bonus Points! There are a lot of other examples such as Tiger Woods, etc. Of course this Justice of the Peace's reasoning has no validity.

    I happened to just read one of the articles about this on MSNBC. In the article, there was a line that read,

    'A justice of the peace is legally obligated to serve the public, all of the public,' Quigley said.

    I couldn't help to think to myself, "except the gays".

    Sad to see racial discrimination still existing, I hope they ask for Keith Bardwell, a white justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish in the southeastern part of the state, to RESIGNicon_exclaim.gificon_twisted.gif The state's Legislative Black Caucus, should get involved on this...really sadicon_rolleyes.gif

    Fortunately, before 1976, both sets of my grandparents and my parents were not married in ALabama, though none of the 3 marriages were deemed valid until the Supreme Court saw the ridiculousness of the state laws banning interracial marriage.
