Holy Bigots Batman!

I thought we had dealt with this crap back in the 60's

But Right Wing Racists are a lot like cockroaches, they hide in dark cracks, under rocks, and are very difficult to get rid of.

An interracial couple is denied a marriage license in in America!

This from AP

"HAMMOND, La. — A Louisiana justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple out of concern for any children the couple might have.

Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, says it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.

Neither Bardwell nor the couple immediately returned phone calls from The Associated Press. But Bardwell told the Daily Star of Hammond that he was not a racist."

(If you have a strong stomach)

Speaking as an American, a human and the offspring of an "interracial" couple, I find this so offensive I almost can't find words to express my disgust.

This is the inevitable outcome of the Right empowering racists in their attempt to regain power by any means. The racism engendered by the Republicans against Obama looks to be the seed that will grow into quite the poisonous weed.

We see it getting out of control already what with the Tea Baggers turning on their Republican overlords.

Here we see the baggers attacking Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and calling him a traitor. (read more about it here) The monster these people have created, nurtured and unleashed WILL turn and rend them in good time. The problen is, by the time they have fallen to their own creation, we may not have a country left.

We will be seeing a lot more of this sort of Racist crap in the near future.

We need to etch a big sheet of steel with the Loving vs. Virginia decision

Fold it until it's all sharp corners

And kick it up this mouth-breathers ass.

Dear Mushtaq,
How about someone suggest that they take a basic Biology course? Then, they would know that if couples of different "races" weren't genetically compatible, there wouldn't BE any children. ie., No worries. So, maybe there should be a new definition of "Interracial Marriage", uh, never mind, that could get weird. But, honestly, what then, is the term "The Human Race" for, anyway? S

I thought we had dealt with it back in ancient Rome. All Varangians and not a real Viking to be found.
