Re: Interracial couple denied marriage license in Louisiana

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.
He mentions "black society" and "white society", as if they're two segregated, totally distinct things. And so what does he do? Support and reinforce the segregation by denying this couple. Doesn't he realize that maybe his society would be more willing to accept mixed-race children if he made an effort of demonstrating that blacks and whites are one society, not two? By denying the couple a licence he's contributing to the very problem he's using to justify denying the couple.
