Louisiana Justice of the Peace Refuses to Issue Marriage License to Interracial Couple

I see that things where I lived before coming to my senses and moving to Seattle haven't changed. I swear I want to go down there are do some serious activism.

Found on MSNBC: Justice of the Peace refuses to issue an interracial couple a marriage license out of concern for the children they may have.

“I don't do interracial marriages because I don't want to put children in a situation they didn't bring on themselves,” Bardwell said. “In my heart, I feel the children will later suffer.”

I'd be concerned for the children this cretin produced. Yeah, is a child raised in love at such a dire risk as one raised in hate?

 I can't say that I am exactly surprised. I went to school in Hammond where some friends and I started our campus GSA. We all had huge targets on our backs, to the point that professors were telling us to watch our backs.

So having a JOP trying to turn back the clock to pre-Loving v. Virginia just makes perfect sense, in the world of white male supremacy that riddles the deep south.
