Blast from the Past

October 20, 2009

You probably heard about this crazy justice of the peace in Louisiana. He refuses to perform marriages for interracial couples out of concern for their children–there is just nothing worse than being an interracial child. No body loves them. They are hated.

He’s got a point. I mean, I don’t know anyone who likes Mariah Carey or Tiger Woods or Barack Obama. They are hated.

And I am sure being the child of an interracial couple and having meaningful relationships with people of different ethnic identities is much more destructive than having parents who are alcoholics, smokers, abusers, or crazy civic-minded prejudiced and deluded Justices of the peace.

But what planet does this guy live on? Where I live, even people who are not married can actually make children and we actually think it is a positive thing to get married first. Oh well, clearly he lives in a different time–one in which racial discrimination is A-OK. I say, send him back there.

Clearly he hasn't met these guys

    Thanks. This was at the playground at the zoo. I have a long history with taking pictures of kids in pipes.
