Reblogging again for the link. WTF?
This is why my step-father told me not to stop (not even for gas) when I’m driving through those states… He told me a terrible story about him driving through Mississippi (heading to New Orleans). Long story short, he had to pretend that he had a gun in his back pocket for them to leave him alone, and this was just a few years ago.
And I also heard that they did not integrate high school proms until 2005.
“BUT THAT HAPPENED IN THE 1960’s!!!!!!!1111ONEONE”
Post racial society, everyone. Huzzah!
BEFORE YOU REBLOG THINGS, CHECK YOUR FACTS. LITERALLY, IT TAKES 2 SECONDS TO GOOGLE THIS AND DISCOVER THAT THIS IS FALSE.
“Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967), was a landmark civil rights decision of the United States Supreme Court which invalidated laws prohibiting interracial marriage.”
“The Supreme Court’s unanimous decision held that this prohibition was unconstitutional, overturning Pace v. Alabama (1883) and ending all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the United States.”
ITS ON FUCKING WIKIPEDIA.
You should take your own advice. BEFORE YOU REBLOG THINGS, CHECK YOUR FACTS.
Ok… see, there’s “research” and then there’s taking 2 seconds to google/wiki something. You should have done research before trying to comment, especially to disprove something.
Even though the feds declared anti-miscegenation laws unconstitutional in 1967, Alabama kept their ban on interracial marriage on the books until 2000 like the image says.
Since you’re so fond of Wikipedia, this fact can also be found there. Dunno how you missed it. Here, I’ll quote it for you:
IT’S ON FUCKING WIKIPEDIA (lol). Here are some other links just in case you’re looking for another reason to disprove this fact
Mixing It Up
Alabama considers lifting interracial marriage ban (1999 CNN article. It’s funny, they didn’t want to lift the ban ‘cause they were afraid it would open the doors for gay marriage. Aint’ that a bitch!!?)
