The Black & White Story of the Lovings (12 pics)

Posted in Random » Weird   12 Jan 2012   / 8742 views

Mildred and Richard Loving were arrested in 1958 for the crime “being married to each other”. Learn their life story after the jump.
 

The sheriff of Caroline County, Virginia, arrested the couple in a nighttime raid in their bedroom. Richard was a bricklayer with a blond buzz cut. Mildred was of Native American and African-American descent. The Lovigns were told by a judge to leave their state for 25 years.

These are pictures of the couple taken by Grey Villet in 1965 and showed by the International Center of Photography.

Besides, Nancy Buirski directed an HBO documentary about the Lovings, “The Loving Story.” This movie describes how the family struggled to return home after living in exile in Washington. Mildren wrote pleading letters to the A.C.L.U. and Robert F. Kennedy. This case was even taken to the Supreme Court by lawyers. The Court struck down miscegenation laws in many states. The only message Richard had for the Supreme Court was: “Tell the court I love my wife.”

Norm101, I notice that you cover up the bottom of your face in your avatar photo. Is that because it's covered in cum?

Black and white photos, black and white pictures, Black and white comment. It says they struggled to return to their state. Fine. But lets not overlook that they stayed married, raised a family and lived life, only in a dirrerent state. What's the big deal? Just another excuse for black polilical groups to beat on the white man so they can keep racism alive and well and making special interest black groups tons of money.

Because we know that brown people are the root of all racism. The poor white folk have never done anything to deserve such ire. Even in the past 50 years...

People of all races can be racist. It is just politically correct to centre shot whites. Although, that is slowly changing.
