Interracial couple denied marriage license in Louisiana
A white Louisiana justice of the peace has refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple. It’s 2009 — the United States has its first ever African-American president; and Louisiana has some knuckle-dragging moron Justice of the Peace who takes it upon himself to decide who can get married.
Keith Bardwell of Tangipahoa Parish, north of New Orleans, insists he’s not a racist and that he tries to treat everyone equally. Then he says this:
“I just don’t believe in mixing the races that way. I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom. I treat them just like everyone else.” To read the full story from CNN click here.
