Is interracial marriage a crime? Mississippians vote "Yes"!
The recent survey released by the Public Policy Polling made my stomach churn. See... with the rise in interracial marriage, I had come to believe that people’s views on interracial marriage are changing… that the people of the U.S. are becoming more accepting of interracial marriage… until I read the results of this poll.
When Republican primary voters in Mississippi were asked whether interracial marriage should be legal or illegal, a massive 46% of the respondents went with “illegal”; with 14% “unsure” and 40% going with “legal”. These results are depressing. I mean…what the $*&% is happening down there?
Let me analyze these poll results:
To me, the 14% unsure voters are not in any way different from the 46%. So if I were the one publishing these results, I’d have said '60% of the respondents believe marriage between people of different races is a felony'. I am still bamboozled at these results. SERIOUSLY? Is miscegenation still that big an issue? And what even provoked the inclusion of the interracial marriage question in PPP?
I know interracial relations might rub a few people the wrong way and I have learned to live with that. But 60%!!!!! As in 60% of the Republican voters believe the existence of President Obama should have been prevented? Are some states locked in their own time zone that spans in decades (backwards) as opposed to hours? Clearly, when it comes to the issue of race, we are not progressing at the rate at which most of us would like to believe we are.
Oh! And a poll respondent sent an email to PPP explaining why she feels interracial marriage should be illegal: “I believe God made us a different color for a reason and should be honored by not marrying outside of the race that God picked for me...”
Question is: Are these the views of most Republicans in general? Well, the assistant director PPP said they also asked Democrat voters the interracial marriage question and the results will be released at a later date.

"My online love inspiration angel"
Submitted by: Patricia, USA, 21
To be honest, in the beginning, I thought it would be a waste of time. But since I've never seen a similar service in any other dating site, I decided to give it a try.
I always "thought" my profile was on point and I did not need any help to correct my page. I always had in my profile if someone is not attracted to my profile, then that's "their" loss.
BOY WAS I WRONG!!
I will never forget my first time using the Coaching Service I was introduced to my personal Dating Coach. Let me put it this way, if it was not for her I would have given up long time ago (even though I'm a new member).
She taught me so many things and gave me good advice, I did not want to stop chatting with her at all.
She opened my eyes to many possibilities when finding love. She is definitely an inspiration and I appreciate a whole lot. She is more than a Dating Coach to me; she is more of a close friend/guide to me. She is definitely my "online love-inspiration angel".
