Interracial marriage should be illegal, say 46% of Mississippi Republicans in new poll

This is just sad & depressing on so many levels.

Eleven years into the 21st century, a new poll indicates there are a lot of Mississippi Republicans still living in the past. A survey conducted last month shows 46% of GOP voters in the state believe interracial marriage should be illegal.  40% who said it should be legal.  The remaining 14% said that they were unsure.
Interracial marriage has been legal in Mississippi for less than fifty years so it's really unfortunate that people still think this way. This got me thinking about how people really feel towards interracial marriage. Has our society evolved enough to understand that love comes in all colors or do you believe people should only stick within their own race?
Sound off in the comment section and tell me what you think.

  1. This really is sad! Interracial relationships have never been a big deal within my family because there are so many, so I've never really had to deal with opposition before and viewed it as a normal thing. However, over the last few years after spending more and more time on the internet, I've come to realise that society still has a long way to go and it's shocking to me just how many people are still against dating someone outside their own race. It's awful and ignorant.
