You guys, until 1967, 16 states still had anti-miscegenation laws prohibiting people of different races from getting married. The United States Supreme Court ruled those laws unconstitutional in the decision for Loving v. Virginia. Not surprisingly, the law was still on the books until 2000, when Alabama citizens voted to repeal it. It’s noteworthy that the vote only passed by 60 PERCENT! But it passed, nonetheless, regardless its constitutionality.
So keep hope. One day we will all have the right to marry whomever we choose. Some people still claim to this day that the Bible prohibits marriage of different races, but justice prevailed. It will prevail again!
It’s a shame we have to, but keep up the fight! Keep hope!
