"The Loving Story": How an Interracial Couple Changed a Nation | Mother Jones
Insane. If a man marries the woman he loves, it is nobody's business but theirs. In 1958 Virginia police raided the house of Mildred and Richard Loving - at two in the morning - because they broke the law that forbade interracial marriage. Pure evil.

"Though most Americans no longer object to interracial unions, when a no-longer-enforced state law was placed on the ballot in South Carolina in 1998, 30 percent still favoured the ban and 62 percent voted to toss it. A poll of likely Republican primary voters in that state last month (2012) showed 20 percent still saying interracial marriage should be illegal." (Source: Washington Post)
