Mississippi And Alabama GOP Voters Think Interracial Marriage Should Be Illegal

Post By RelatedRelated Post


A recent survey by Public Policy Polling showed that almost half of likely GOP voters in Mississippi and Alabama think the president is Muslim. They also largely don’t believe in evolution in either state. The topic, however, upon which these states seem to be most out of touch with the rest of the country is interracial marriage.

While support for interracial marriage is at an all-time high nationally, 29 percent of likely GOP voters in Mississippi and 21 percent in Alabama think that marriage between people of different races should be illegal.

Perhaps because of attitudes in the South, a Pew study released last month found that interracial couples are more likely to reside in the Western United States.

The last U.S. anti-miscegenation laws were overturned in 1967, six years after Barack Obama was born to a white mother and black father. The case of Loving vs. Virginia was one couple’s attempt to fight back against the criminalization of interracial marriage in the South. The Lovings won their case in the Supreme Court, reversing a nearly 84-year-old precedent that was set in Alabama with Pace v. Alabama.

  1. What gets me is how anyone could have ever thought that Mississippi and Alabama was somehow no longer biggoted and out of touched states?

  2. It is no ones business who a person marry. It is not marriage that produce others I was always told that it was sex. And sex between the races has been going on all over the world. And people from all over the world do not like race mixing.

    People will do what they want to do when it comes to who they want to marry.
