Freaky Friday-Interracial Marriage License Denied

I read an article yesterday about an interracial couple from Louisiana being denied and was honestly surprised. Perhaps it's because it's 2009 and the U.S. at this point is such a melting pot? Perhaps it's because an elected official is the one discriminating? Either way, it was an eye opener once more that the racial tensions still exist. This is not to debate but, more to recognize that even though it's 2009, there are still people in all areas of this country that discriminate against race, even though it's unlawful to do.

I find it hard to believe in this day & age that there are still archaic laws like this being unforced!

No wonder that people still complain that there is still so much discrimination in the USA!
