HAMMOND, La. (AP) - A Louisiana justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple out of concern for any children the couple might have. Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, says it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.
Neither Bardwell nor the couple immediately returned phone calls from The Associated Press. But Bardwell told the Daily Star of Hammond that he was not a racist.

this is so bizarre I half suspect a closet rat trying to enforce stereotypes regarding the south
I'm guessing the welcome mat was NOT out for Katrina refugees.
Just remember the rats WERE the original southern racists.
So it’s okay for them to shack up and have a bunch of out of wedlock kids. What in the hell is this judge thinking?
Dumba(( racists aren’t known for the whole thinking thing.
This is disgusting. This judge should be removed from power immediately.
I didn't think that my grandmother was still alive (she told me the same thing that interracial marriage between whites and anyone else was bad "for the children).
Its between a WOMAN and a MAN. That's all that should matter! Even if they are a match made in hell, it is their own damn decision!
Very readable in today's type of English, not like reading Ben Franklin.
Try "Army life in a Black Regiment" by Thomas Higginson Wentworth circa 1863 or "An Englishmans Travels in America; His observations of life and manners in the free and slave states" circa 1857.
No PC back then, these people tell it like it was and what and how the races thought, treated, and expected of each other.
Fascinating considering what is happening today and shocking when one realizes that the Plantation mentality is alive and well today and is embodied in the halls of the United States Congress, our Masters, and the democrat party and their constituents, who have become Overseers of us taxpayer slaves.
this couple will have a good lawsuit against this “judge”....
That’s true. Senators of which party wore the great white sheet in their younger years?
But, I also know that a good many teenagers and immature women think it's "romantic" to do the Mandingo thing.
You can't fix stupid, and there is nothing more stupid than a liberal man or woman in smug love with his/her/it's "color blind" ideals.
This judge is going to get steamrollered for trying to be honest, and attempting to obstruct stupidity. Honesty is a failing in a public official exposed to Democrat, politically correct, justice.
I wonder how many outlets covering this story omit that the Judge is a Democrat.
Just curious here-—does anyone know if this guy does same sex marriages?
I expect this guy to catch a pantload of legal trouble.
Fascinating. The ACLU doesn't even care what the outcome of the investigation is. If they don't care about the outcome, I wonder if they care what the charges are? Something about this whole article doesn't pass the smell test.
