Re: Interracial couple denied marriage license in Louisiana

Well said, Nerys and tsq.

And at the risk of trivializing the situation by interjecting a fictional example: This is exactly the kind of thing Spock had to deal with in ST XI. The Vulcan Science Minister was exhibiting obviously racist behavior when he referred to Spock's human ancestry (his mother's side) as a disadvantage, since Vulcan - being a society which values logic above all else - must NEVER exhibit this kind of thing, since racism is inherently illogical.
