Funny how history repeats itself  
"Intermarriage between whites and blacks is repulsive and averse to every sentiment of pure American spirit. It is abhorrent and repugnant. It is subversive to social peace. It is destructive of moral supremacy, and ultimately this slavery to black beasts will bring this nation to a fatal conflict."

-Rep. Seaborn Roddenberry, in 1911,
in a speech to Congress introducing a constitutional amendment to ban interracial marriages

Too bad we can't amend the Constitution to End Hate.





I found that quote in the speech by Chuck Muth to Congress on beachboyty's blog here. Worth checking out.
