The 40th anniversary of the case granting interracial marriage shows promise for an equal future, granting gay marriage.
Commentary by Kevin Cathcart and H. Alexander Robinson
"Just forty years ago it was against the law in sixteen states for people of different races to marry. On June 12, 1967 the United States Supreme Court struck down all bans on interracial marriage in the landmark case, Loving v. Virginia. The decision sparked fiery controversy ? today it is seen as a triumph for racial justice and the freedom to marry."
