CP: Looks at Virgina v. Loving, & Recalling the Trinidad Link

The City Paper recently celebrated the 44th anniversary of the marriage of Mildred Jeter and Richard Loving. The marriage of the interracial couple would (after a multi-year court battle that lead all the way to the Supreme Court) lead to the striking out down of anti-miscegenation laws across the country. Did you know the couple once lived with relatives on Neal Street (Trinidad)? Read more on this topic in a post from last year.

WOW! "The fact that he [God] separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix."

I hear the same bs crap today over gay marriage.

Amazing the ignorance and the hatred people had and have towards one another.
