Wait, is this true?

I don't think that's true. That being illegal until the year 2000 does not seem right. But I was 12 in 2000, so what do I know.

Well the Supreme Court ruled interracial marriage bans unconstitutional back in the 60s.

Maybe Alabama didn't officially remove the ban from their state law until 2000, even though you could still have it done in the state anyways?

IIRC the law was still on the books but had long since been superseded by court rulings. The vote was symbolic.

Someone posted this facts on Twitter and I had to double check it.
But it is true.
quote:

Back in 2000, Alabama became the last state in the country to overturn its ban on interracial marriage. And despite more than three decades having passed since the Supreme Court ruled such laws unconstitutional (rendering such bans effectively moot), more than 40 percent of Alabamians still voted against overturning it.

State bans on interracial marriage were already unconstitutional as a result of the Living v Virginia decision in 1967.

There was a vote in AL (not sure if it was in 2000 or the late Nineties) to remove the now unenforceable ban from our state constitution, and I think the percentage of votes against that was somewhere in the thirties, but it may have been as high as forty percent.

You are right about that. How about someone do a side by side comparison of LA, MS, and AL

Mississippi didn't officially ratify the 13 Amendment that banned slavery until 2013.

I really wish they had put that to a vote in 2013.

We have problems in LA, absolutely, but there’s such a disgusting, creepy, sleaze factor in the air in Alabama. Always feel the need to take a shower as soon as I get out of that God forsaken shite hole.

re: Alabama is a really bad state by every metric.
If it's such a zhithole and its inhabitants are so inferior, why don't you go there and take over?

I'll tell you why: Because people who get involved in playing the Geographical bias game are going to be inferior humans no matter where they go....

You seek to find some sort of validation in your own sad little life, but you will still be the same little zhit-stain no matter where you go...
