    So....where you come from, judges can tell people they can't get married because they won't be good parents? What country do you live in?

    I'm sure that's true to a small extent. Of course, I'm not talking about those with brain conditions that are genetic. That certainly can happen, especially from inbreeding. Dalmations have a reputation for this. I've seen smart dalmations though. It depends upon responsible breeding.

But non of that is based on science, it is based on my biased opinion.

    .
    My mixed niece is of average intelligence, grade wise. I think she's smart though. It's hard to scientifically prove intelligence levels.

    I think it's great that a multiracial person owns all the white guys in golf!

    He probably has a brain condition. I should have qualified my position by saying that I meant dogs without neurological conditions.

    I agree with Cesar Millan.

    This guy is a justice of the peace, not a judge. I don't know what laws apply to JOP's, so I can't say either way if he has the legal right to refuse to marry someone. Seems to me that he would, but I'm just guessing.

    My point was that Hazlnut is all hyped up about this, but he didn't grow up in Tangipahoa Parish and can't say with full certainty that if he had, that he wouldn't have made the same call. The only reason this story made the news is because, 1) it happened in the South, 2) the JOP is white, 3) one part of the couple is black.

    But do you think it is justifiable for the reason the judge cited?

    First, re-read my post.

    I don't think it's justifiable. However, the, "mean ole' southron white man", line has gotten quite old since we've entered into the, "post racial period", in our country's history.

    I have lived in he South and have reletives in the South who have mixed marriages ( white/white with Southeners). The South is indeed a dicotomy on racial interaction and relations in that they obviously had institutionalized racism a whole lot longer than we had in the North. Yet they have had in the South more closer relationships on a personal basis between Blacks and Whites isolated as that may be.

    It is true that the vestages of that institutional racism of the South still lives in their society but we are not all pure oursleves up here in the North or the West Coast. We up here have our prejudices against ceertain ethnic groups don't we !!! Prejudice against Italians who the ruling Wasps called WOPS is not all that far off in our history. There are people still alive today who would rather die than have their children marry a Polack. Latin peoples are still referrd to as Spics in many quarters and there is not exactly a great love extended to the Dot Heads who own many of our 7 Elevens.

    Let us not forget that in South Boston in the 1960'S Whites burned school buses when forced intergration came about.

    I have a neighbor who referes to the Black couple who live across the stream from my place as "that colored girl and her Nig husband".

    I re-read it, but I still don't understand why your post was so indignant, especially since you don't think it was justified.

    If you don't agree with the JP, why are you so defensive? That doesn't make any sense to me.

    I think that the story still would have made the news even if it had happened in the North. Also if one of the couples was not black this wold be either a non story or not much o a story.

    But if you have been following along....I have said that despite the fact that I think Rush is a big fat hypocrite slob....he should have the same right as anyone to be an NFL owner.
