Interracial Marriage. For? Against? Somewhere in Between? Where Do You Land On This Issue?
VIDEO: How do you feel about interracial marriage? Just 7 months ago a Justice of the Peace in Louisiana refused to grant a marriage license to an interracial couple. This Justice says he did not break the law and has the right to recuse himself of performing the ceremony based on his concern for the “offspring of mixed race marriage”. This action sparked a controversy that caused many folks to ask “Are we really still dealing with this issue in this day and age?” It also caused many to say “Of course we’re still dealing with this!” Many people usually identify as being for or against interracial dating/marriage. You will find views from people that say there are little to no significant problems that come from marrying outside your race and then there are those that say there are more issues than you can count that come from marrying outside one’s race. What do you think? Are you open to marrying outside of your race? Is this an issue that should be dead or is it still alive and well for a reason?

You probably are right down the street from me, and we never knew it. Currently I live in Ruston, but in three days, we’re moving to NC. Shoot me an e-mail at email@example.com so we can exchange numbers!

I live in northeast Louisiana,We have comment a lot on many articles,on different post…just maybe our small town isn’t far apart,I would love to met you,and just talk….
I grew up in a military community. For every black couple and white couple, there was an interracial couple. Samoans marrying blacks, Latinos marrying whites…it was a cornucopia of flavor and culture, and I loved it!
Right now I live in Louisiana (about four hours north of where this justice of the peace showed his tail), and I have to tell you…you need a passport to go to certain parts of this state. Some of the attitudes down here are like a time warp to Jim Crow. But the solidarity in the communities is really tight as well.
To answer the question, I don’t have a problem at all with interracial couples.
