Mississippi Takes L : 46% Of State Republicans Think Interracial Marriage Should Be Illegal [Video]

Video and Poll After The Jump

 

With closed minded people like the ones in Mississippi it's no wonder why Republicans have a hard time attracting more African Americans.

In a survey conducted by phone, Public Policy Polling of Raleigh, N.C., found that 46% of of GOP respondents thought interracial marriage should be illegal.

Interracial marriages were in fact illegal until a 1967 Supreme Court ruling forced the state to change it's laws.

40% felt mixed marriages should remain legal while 14% weren't sure.

The Daily Mail reports that even with Mississippi's backwards view on race and relationships, the state led the nation in the growth of mixed marriages for most of the last decade. However, the multiracial population remains small, about 1.1 per cent.

Hard to believe this kind of stuff is still being debated in 2011.

What's your take on interracial marriages?
