Interracial couple denied marriage license in Lousiana. It's not 2009 everywhere.


HAMMOND, La. (AP) - A Louisiana justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple out of concern for any children the couple might have.

Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, says it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.

Neither Bardwell nor the couple immediately returned phone calls from The Associated Press. But Bardwell told the Daily Star of Hammond that he was not a racist.

That's not enough. You really need to read the comments on the article which include

  • Most likely a wigger woman. Damaged goods now.
  • Wigger woman for sure!! Good for the judge! Interacial marriage...not good for NO ONE!!!
  • Hey, this is America. If somebody wants to be able to marry their horse, they should be allowed.
  • Good for the judge, there is an old saying about biracial BLACK BIRDS DO NOT MATE WITH ROBINS. And it should be true for black and whites, I will bet a hundred dollars that the dude is a heavy set black guy, and teh woman is even heavier and uglier
