It's the most ridiculous excuse I've heard yet. Taken to its logical conclusion this "protect the children" thought process will lead to the careful selection of which couples will produce kids least likely to be picked on at school. No redhead parents, no fat parents, no short parents, no "social stigma" allowed at all if you want the privilege of reproducing.

    Depending on the circumstances and based society in which he lives, the mulatto child might find life very difficult because of his mixed-breed ancestry -- easily to the point where he might have been better off not being born.

    (This is, after all, an oft-used and therefore apparently legitimate justification for abortion)

    Then the problem lies in the society he was born into
    How bigoted and racist does a society have to be for a mixed race child to have a easier time 'not born' than living with a mixed ancestry.

    Or rather the problem lies with people like you attempting to make excuses for this racist.

    Why not?
    the child has not yet been born. that's why not. good lord. and the child's potential COLOR isn't any concern of the state, either.

    Why should people let the bigotry of others prevent them from procreating?

    Ok... so?
    You can't retro-actively deal with the situation -- isnt it better to deal with it BEFORE it becomes an issue?

    So you are advocating tolerance for bigots? Nice. So I'm guessing the same should go for all other minority groups who are discriminated against. They just shouldn't breed because their child could experience racial intolerance? Yeah, and it's quite obvious that the welfare of the child is your top concern in espousing this absurd viewpoint.

    What on earth makes you think that the absence of a marriage license will prevent an interracial couple from having children?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I guess we all need to learn to march in lock-step, and teach our children to do the same, so that we don't stand out.
