interracial marriage

On this day in 1967, the United States Supreme Court issued a decision on the case Loving v. Virginia. The case was brought by Mildred and Richard Loving, a mixed black and Native woman and a white man who had been sentenced to a year in prison each for getting married, under Virginia’s anti-interracial marriage laws. 

Police raided their home in the middle of the night, hoping to discover them having sex, which would confer an additional criminal charge. When the Lovings pointed out their marriage license (issued in Washington DC, where the marriage was legal), it was used in court as evidence against them, as marriage between a person considered white and a person considered non-white was at this time a felony.

They plead guilty and were told that their sentence would be suspended (not carried out) if they left the state. They did so, moving to DC, but faced so much trouble trying to visit relatives in Virginia (as they could not live or travel together there, under threat of a year in prison) that they appealed the ruling. 

The court decided in favor of the Lovings, declaring laws against interracial marriage to be unconstitutional. This case was a landmark Civil Rights victory, and it happened only 47 years ago. 

How interracial couples will make America a more beautiful and tolerant place

Love is not blind. But that could be a great thing.

Interracial relationships are on a steady rise. It’s less than 50 years since blacks and whites have been able to legally marry, thanks to the Supreme Court, and 15.1% of new marriages in 2010 were between different races or ethnicities. This brings the share of all interracial or interethnic marriages to a historic high of 8.4%, according to Pew Research Center data. Compare that with 1980, when less than 7% of new marriages took place between interracial couples and the share of overall marriages was just 3%. 

But the significance of the change goes beyond simple acceptance.

Richard and Mildred Loving;

Arrest: June 1958

Charge: Felony

Crime: Interracial marriage

Case: Loving v. State of Virginia 1967

“Forty-five years ago, sixteen states still prohibited interracial marriage. Then, in 1967, the U.S. Supreme Court considered the case of Richard Perry Loving, a white man, and his wife, Mildred Loving, a woman of African American and Native American descent, who had been arrested for miscegenation nine years earlier in Virginia. The Lovings were not active in the Civil Rights movement but their tenacious legal battle to justify their marriage changed history when the Supreme Court unanimously declared Virginia’s anti-miscegenation law—and all race-based marriage bans—unconstitutional. ” - ICP

Everyone should have kids outside of their own race.

Having two parents of the same race (White + White or Black +Black) is pretty much genetic incest. Nothing new is gained, just the same old regular shit passed on. Pure bloods are inbreds.

Black people tend to call black men “brothers” and black women “sisters”. I know it is more of a symbolic thing, but it got me thinking. I would not want to fuck my brother if I had one. So honestly, dating in your own race, whatever it may be, sounds like incest to me.

Remember kids, to keep the bloodline pure, you have to inbreed. Making babies with our own kind might have been fine 10,000 years ago.

But now we can travel, and have many cultures living in the same areas. No need to stick to our own anymore. Get out there and mix it up.

That is why I had kids with a man outside my race. Genetic diversity.
