The whites couldn't marry the blacks.<quoted text>
It's only equality for those that want what the majority wants.
That isn't equality, it's discrimination.
There's no reason for it outside of bigotry.
The blacks couldn't marry the whites.
I'd call that equal. Stupid, bigoted, but equal.
If it were the case that a white man could marry a black woman but not a black man marry a white woman, then I'd agree with you that that's not equal.
