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 Dating Coach really took the time to go through my profile thoroughly. First she viewed my pictures and gave me great feedback.
She read through the written portion of my profile, line by line, and gave direct feedback on how to add my personality to it.
My amazing consultant, even asked how my contacts where going and offered a few suggestions to increase my interactions with new men.
I took her advice and made the suggested adjustments.
I have received more contact from men, more views, and have started communicating with more people which was the whole point of joining the site in the first place.
The Coaching Service served as an incredible perk and has really enhanced my online dating experience. Thanks!
