Pennsylvania, which had passed a law banning interracial marriage in 1725, repeals it as part of a series of reforms intended to gradually abolish slavery within the state and grant free blacks equal legal status. constitutional amendment banning all marriage between whites and people of color in every state throughout the country. Whatever discrimination is made in the punishment prescribed in the two sections is directed against the offense designated and not against the person of any particular color or race. Supreme Court's ruling in that Asian Americans are not white and therefore cannot legally become citizens, the U. government revoked the citizenship of natural-born U. citizens such as Mary Keatinge Das, wife of the Pakistani-American activist Taraknath Das, and Emily Chinn, mother of four and wife of a Chinese-American immigrant.
I am not one of those types who think that black is best so damn the rest.
No, that cannot be attributed as the justification for my once held views.
The original 1705 ban, the third such law following those of Maryland and Virginia, prohibited both marriage and sexual relations between people of color (specifically, African Americans and American Indians) and whites. "That intermarriage between negroes or persons of color and Caucasians or any other character of persons within the United States or any territory under their jurisdiction, is forever prohibited; and the term 'negro or person of color,' as here employed, shall be held to mean any and all persons of African descent or having any trace of African or negro blood."Later theories of physical anthropology will suggest that every human being has some African ancestry, which could have rendered this amendment unenforceable had it passed. In this case, the Cable Act retroactively stripped the citizenship of any U. citizen who married "an alien ineligible for citizenship," which -- under the racial quota system of the time -- primarily meant Asian Americans. The fact that Virginia prohibits only interracial marriages involving white persons demonstrates that the racial classifications must stand on their own justification, as measures designed to maintain White Supremacy ..."The freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men ...

Supreme Court unanimously rules that state-level bans on interracial marriage do not violate the Fourteenth Amendment of the U. Section 4189 applies the same punishment to both offenders, the white and the black.
And in 1705, Virginia expanded the policy to impose massive fines on any minister who performs a marriage between a person of color and a white person -- with half the amount (ten thousand pounds) to be paid to the informant. Indeed, the offense against which this latter section is aimed cannot be committed without involving the persons of both races in the same punishment.
However, as human beings we all make pre-judgements against each other.
Centuries before the same-sex marriage movement, the U. government, its constituent states, and their colonial predecessors tackled the controversial issue of "miscegenation": race-mixing. "[F]orasmuch as diverse freeborn English women forgetful of their free condition and to the disgrace of our Nation do intermarry with Negro slaves by which also diverse suits may arise touching the [children] of such women and a great damage doth befall the Masters of such Negroes for prevention whereof for deterring such freeborn women from such shameful matches,"Be it further enacted by the authority advice and consent aforesaid that whatsoever freeborn woman shall intermarry with any slave from and after the last day of this present Assembly shall serve the master of such slave during the life of her husband, and that the [children] of such freeborn women so married shall be slaves as their fathers were.
Admittedly, I was once unsure about interracial dating.
