For those of you interested in the story of the justice who blocked interracial marriage that was discussed in class today, see the link below.

This is an article that delves further into the issue (and includes an interview with the justice – yes, he is old). Bardwell still refuses to admit that he is racist and argues that he has done nothing wrong. He does however, fear the offspring of mixed-race marriages. There is also a video interview with the interracial couple, who were eventually married by another justice.
