let the ignorant racist bs begin!

i'm so sorry you thought it was a good idea to post this.

but i will add some commentary. i think Pentecostals are about to change Corinth in a big way. there are more and more Pentecostals in our area and more and more of their young women are having kids with black men. that means more and more mixed children. which may stoke more racism and ignorance short term, but i think longterm ppl of low socioeconomic class (who are usually the most racist ones in our area) are going to realize half their cousins are mixed so they better just shut up.

just a thought. not hating on Pentecostals--it's just an observation.

IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL... There is no reason that a nice white or black person cannot find a person of there own race... White girls just do it to piss off daddy's and get them locked up for murder

Who in the world wants to condemn people for finding LOVE? Come on people. Just because you choose what makes you happy, why bitch about other people's happiness? Or are you so miserable with your own life choices, you think you need to direct everyone else's chances for happiness.

LORD, GOD ALMIGHTY, PLEASE BE WITH THESE PEOPLE! The best thing we have in this world is to find some happiness. Don't condemn someone for finding there's. Do you and we'll ALL be happier.

"There's" vs "their's" and upper case where it should be lower case. I know, I know. damn, iPad. You are NOT going to negate my argument by dissecting my English.

You should just call them Cringeolines. If people are that anal, they need to get a life.

Whoever did that poll us an idiot. I'm a 51 year old white female Republican and I know for a fact that to most white Republicans, interracial marriage is just a non issue. Just another attempt from the Dumbocrats to try to paint Republicans in a bad light.

I doubt they were being that deep with their thought. You must have some feelings of guilt driving you.

This is stupid. They will legalize hat marriages but not interracial couple. Marriage is defined as a union between a man and a 2oman no where does it mention race. It's not my thing but if a onterracial couple is happy whose business it is it. It's not our place to judge. It's sad that racism still exist so widespread as does today. Wake up people.

depends on what circles you hang around. if you are a poor republican or old democrat and most in MS are one or the other, you're probably racist. if you are a country club republican, which you may be, then obviously you don't care about interracial marriage as much if at all. a byproduct of a decent education as well as not seeing poor black people as a sexual threat to your family will make you naturally more tolerant.

stop attacking the poll. or do your own. just cause your friends don't admit they're racist doesn't mean most of mississippi ain't racist. it's embarrassing for all us mississippi folk for real, but i don't think the point of the lady posting this was to attack Republicans. she was just looking to vent because she felt under scrutiny by a society that's mostly manners and no class.

happy hating, haters!

First off if this is what worries you when u sleep at night u are more screwed up than the issue itself. U cannot judge someone by who they love and what are you trying to say? Are you saying people in these marriages cannot become or are not productive members in society?? Get a life! My husband isn't white. My child is mixed. Does that make my child something different from yours? Seriously I pray for people like you who waste their lives worrying about things they have no control over. U wanna talk about what the Bible says marriage being between a man and woman and not mixing races, I believe if you read deep enough then at some point you also read the part about Thou shalt not judge!!! Sorry to burst your bubble but even if these marriages are banned the people will still continue to be together just not be married but then I guess you will have something else to say then.....it is never ending ignorance down south. Perhaps you would like to go back to the old days of seperate water fountains and bathrooms. Food places to maybe....geez....you really need to burn your sheet. The basis of what it cost to live in our society these days you would think your bed sheet would serve more purpose on your bed! Where it was meant to be in the first place. Now if you will excuse me, I'm going to take my white ass to my husband of color....its bedtime!! Sweet dreams!

Exactly who are you talking to?

Secondly, how would you rate your self-esteem on a scale of 1-10? 1 being the lowest, 10 being the highest.
