    I know plenty of black people that are vehimitly opposed to inter-racial marriages.
    A. Notice how people who aren't liberals can't believe this so you can stop making your generalizations.
    B. So are you in support of this or are you against it?

    Yes and no.

    Typically where I grew up in the midwest, light skinned black boys were considered high yellow and light skinned girls were considered red boned. My sister and younger brother (may he rest in peace) are both very light skinned, but both my parents were black (RIP mom and dad). My siblings got their pigmentation from our father who was also very light skinned.

    Now, it's very likely my youngest daughter will be called high yellow or red boned because she is mixed; my wife is white. I haven't heard anyone call my daughter either name yet, but then again she's only 8 yrs old and she looks more white than black.

    As to the JOP refusing to marry the mixed couple, I guess my wife and I can count ourselves lucky we didn't get married in LA (or AL where we live where interracial marriages were illegal at the time we married). Regardless, I guess it's his choice if he'll perform such marriage ceremonies or not. My own paster (who's white) won't marry any couple unless they complete his marriage counseling sessions. So, I guess I can't critisize this JOP too much if I can accept the pre-marriage conditions my own paster sets down.

    To each his own, I guess. The crazy thing is I can understand where the JOP's coming from through my own limited experience with my daughter. It's not that anyone's calling her names or anything like that, but rather you can tell she sometimes has a difficult time fitting in with black and white kids mostly because they don't know how to relate to her. Of course, we're talking about kids here. At such a young age, they're all learning about so many different things. But once they all hit the playground, the color lines tend to go away.

    Oh, to be a kid again.

    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    The JOPs feeling should not matter on this issue. He is supposed to execute the legal proceedings according to the law. If his feelings are interfering with that then he should have just recused himself from the situation. Which he sorta did. What is so special about this guy that he has to be the one to marry them anyway? I admire his guts at expressing his feelings but even he should know the kind of attack dogs waiting in the shadows for anything remotely hinting of a racism spotlight.



    Thank you

    Louisiana's Gov. Jindal calls for ouster of judge who refused marriage license to interracial couple.

    Louisiana's governor and a U.S. senator Friday called for the ouster of a local official who refused to marry an interracial couple, saying his actions clearly broke the law.

    Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said in a statement Bardwell’s practices and comments were deeply disturbing.

    “Not only does his decision directly contradict Supreme Court rulings, it is an example of the ugly bigotry that divided our country for too long,” she said

    People thought what happened in California with prop 8 applied only to gays.
    Prop hate was just the tip of the iceberg.

    Oh please. The gay community is about as much a bell weather, as North Dakota is to the country.

    You just don't get it.

    If people can take away the Constitutional right of gays to marry in California by a simply majority 50%+1 vote....what is there next target?


    First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist;
    Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist;
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist;
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew;
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.
