Umm... WTF?

Interracial Couple Denied Marriage License By Louisiana Justice Of The Peace

Bardwell said he asks everyone who calls about marriage if they are a mixed race couple. If they are, he does not marry them, he said.

Bardwell said he has discussed the topic with blacks and whites, along with witnessing some interracial marriages. He came to the conclusion that most of black society does not readily accept offspring of such relationships, and neither does white society, he said.

"There is a problem with both groups accepting a child from such a marriage," Bardwell said. "I think those children suffer and I won't help put them through it."

Oh, right, because clearly all children from interracial marriages are put down and they can never aspire to make anything of themselves given such a terrible handicap.... Oh wait the f'ing President of the United States is a product of an interracial marriage.

Why does this guy still have his job? Is Louisiana really that ass backwards?


"I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way."

Does he understand English?
My personal favorites are the next few lines:

"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 marry them, they use my bathroom? How are those two things in any way connected? Wait nevermind, I don't want to know.

Yeah, the bathroom bit got me too. Maybe black people have Teh AIDS? You know, the kind you catch from toilet seats?


given the evidence i would have to say no...no he does not.
I agree!
found this stunning but not surprising as i'm sure his feelings are secretly shared by many "traditionalists". i still remember feeling floored by my parents when i told them about alok, and even though they've come around, they were quite adamantly against our relationship during the first few months to a year even. i'm certain they had to do some soul searching & growing themselves to come around as they have... but it was an eye opener to see what the default state was, if that makes any sense. i am, however, surprised this guy still has a job.
