Marriage Equality - Then and Now AND The U.S. Supreme Court~

*******************************
Until this date in history, mixed racial 
couples who loved one another and wanted
to marry were banned by law from 
doing so in a number of States 
in America.
*
In some States this also included those
 of significant color differences. For example,
dark skin Hispanics and native Americans
were stopped from marrying "whites" 
on the basis of skin color alone. 
*
In some States (example Virginia),
those of mixed race/color who married 
in States that allowed such marriages 
were arrested and jailed, and 
denied cohabitation. 
*
The courts of the 1930's, 40's, and 50's
 are on record saying: 
'Because when God created man,
HE placed people of different color on
different continents for the purpose
of keeping the races separated', was
reason to deny the right to marry.
*
These matters were corrected by the
U.S. Supreme Court 
in 1967, and mixed race/color 
couples gained marriage equality.
*************************************
After decades of legal discrimination, and
similar arguments against same-gender
marriages, the Supreme Court
declared marriage equality for all 
Americans as 'The Law of the Land' on
June 26, 2015.
