Without further comment, we quote an AP story posted on Talking Points Memo (whose blog post on it was headlined, "Thought we'd dealt with this"):
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.
... Bardwell told the Daily Star of Hammond that he was not a racist.
"I do ceremonies for black couples right here in my house," Bardwell said. "My main concern is for the children." ...
... "I don't do interracial marriages because I don't want to put children in a situation they didn't bring on themselves," Bardwell said.
OK, one further comment**: It has often been remarked that pretty much any time you have to say, "I'm not a racist (but) ..." it is probably a sign that you are, guess what, a racist.
