Interracial Marriage

There are no prohibitions to interracial unions in the United States. At one time, many states had enacted statutes forbidding marriages between people of different races. Such a mixed-race union is also known as “miscegenation.” These antimiscegenation statutes were found across the United States and particularly in Southern states. Though most states had repealed such laws by the time of the case of Loving v. Virginia, in 1967 the U.S. Supreme Court, in deciding that case, decreed all such laws to be unconstitutional because they violated the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
