North Carolina’s Last Anti-Marriage Amendment Banned Interracial Marriage

I’m still sad — and a bit angry — that the voters of North Carolina passed the discriminatory Amendment One last night.  As I was scouring the blogs and social media sites for news, I came upon a tweet that hit me smack between the eyes.  Apparently, the last time North Carolina amended its State Constitution to define marriage, it banned interracial marriage!  We all know how that turned out.  I guess North Carolinians learn slowly.  Big heavy sigh.

Thanks to Think Progress for the tweet.
