10b-InterracialMarriage

They make it so easy:

A white 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.
“I’m not a racist. I just don’t believe in mixing the races that way,” Bardwell told the Associated Press on Thursday. “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.”

I am overcome with verklemptitude. Having, apparently, stacked them up like cord wood in his backyard, JP Bardwell lets his piles of black friends use his bathroom. C’mon – it’s a cute story, filled with the mutual love shared by all of humankind!

Thus speaks the New Voice of The Ol’ South.
