Mildred Loving: amazing woman  

I have to pay homage to the wonderful Mildred Loving, who unfortunately passed away today at the age of 68. For those of you who don't know, Loving was a pioneer advocate for interracial marriage. In 1967, she challenged Virginia's ban on interracial marriage with the Supreme Court case Loving vs. Virginia. The Court ruled to abolish all laws that banned interracial marriage. It was an amazing achievement and I want us to all remember it.

What next?

    The essence of civil rights
    is the freedom of personal
    What hypocrisy!
    Every Fourth Of July
    dragging out the Declaration
    of Independence, as if it
    wasn't more than just
    a meaningless sentiment!
