Over 50 years ago a person in a number of states in the United States could be imprisoned and fined for marrying someone of a different race. That this was law then is a blot on the historic record of how Americans back then viewed race. What is scary is that in some regions of the country there are people who still hold the same views that were true 50 years ago. There are areas where people honestly believe that interracial marriage is not only “wrong” but should again be outlawed. There are still areas where someone wanting to marry another person of a different race is still frowned upon.
