I too am mixed, I am told that I have just barely enough American Indian in me to move to a reservation ( LOL ) but you would never know it to look at me, light brown ( was blond when a child ) hair and blue eyes. I have quite a bit of Scandinavian, and no small amount of German in my blood<quoted text>
Agreed, as long as the husbnd AND wife, regardless of their self identified sexual orientation, are present, marriage laws should be applied equally.
I always found it puzzling for the need to hypenate every racial grouping, except for those of European descent. I'm the grandson of southern Italian immigrants, and yet I'm refered to as white. But if a person has a Spanish sounding sir name, regardless of how many generations they are removed for the ethnic land of origin, they are refered to as hispanic. So a person whose great great geat grandarents were from, say Mexico, is called "Hispanic" or "Latino" (Italians are latins too), yet a grandson of southern Italian immigrants, is called "white". Go figure.
Hmmmmm...not quite...close maybe....we both know that. Its still a same sex marriage. If there's two men/women on the license, it an SSM.
But I am not an American Indian/Scandinavian/German-Ame rican.... Im just an American.
I think we are not doing the right thing putting the qualifiers in there, African American or Mexican American... we are just Americans, which has nothing to do with Race, Creed, Color, Sex, Religion, Orientation or National Origin.
If we are ever going to erase bigotry we will stop qualifying different groups all together.
If I meet a married couple, they are a married couple, I donít care if they are black, white red or purple with orange polka dots, I donít care if they are the same or different colors, or opposite sex, same sex or what have you, they are a just a married couple. I donít need to pre-judge anyone based on such qualifiers, I take each person as they come.
