In 2000, Alabama became the last state to adapt its laws to the Supreme Court’s decision, by removing a provision prohibiting mixed-race marriage from its state constitution through a ballot initiative. 60 percent voted for the removal of the rule, and 50 percent against.Voter fraud!!!

On the other hand, when politicians, actors, televangelists, and corporations screw up, they go on TV and beg for forgiveness, and magically get forgiven. I just get hammered for eternity. ](*,)Well, there's your problem. You need to go on TV.

There was something even more pernicious underlying the Virginia laws that were struck down in Loving.





Indians in Virginia had not been able to register their children as Native Americans with tribal designations. Too many Negroes or mixed bloods with Negros were passing themselves off as Indian and/or white. There was a sizable population that was mixed race Negro, Indian and white and they just could not have them passing themselves off and mixing with white society. This still causes problems even now since the records are so messed up and do not reflect tribal affiliations as they were effectively wiped out by these laws to maintain ''racial integrity.'"





[/break1]encyclopediavirginia.org/racial_integrity_laws_of_the_1920s]http://www.encyclopediavirginia.org/rac ... _the_1920s





The wife in Loving was one of these. The tribes in Virginia and many other states are not able to get recognition and get the benefits of being Indian. But they sure got all the disadvantages every time.

Also on June 25thGeneral George A. Custer, leading 250 men, attacked an encampment of Sioux Indians near Little Bighorn River in Montana. Custer and his men were then attacked by 2000-4000 Indian braves. Only one scout and a single horse survived 'Custer's Last Stand' on the Little Bighorn Battlefield

There were about 3,000 Native American "survivors" of the Little Big Horn.

When I see it put down that all under Custer's command died...They were all under Custer's command. The folks that were killed were under the "direct" command of LTC Custer. :(( Not to beat a dead horse, just one of those bones I just have to pick.

Ya, georgie's gatlin guns and crews couldn't move fast enough and actual scouting out the territory before running headlong into a situation he had no way to get out of was the last of a long line of bad moves he made in his career.

Since I'm still burned out from the recent trip, I may shorten next years trip and include Little Big Horn. Then again, my mood may change by then. Oh how I miss the Fogbowers.
