Plurality of Mississippi GOP Think Interracial Marriage Should Be Illegal

FIX IT, OBAMA!PPP surveyed Mississippi Republican voters, and it turns out most of them aren’t shy about letting random people who call them up on the phone at dinner know how racist they are. Just 40% of them said interracial marriage should be legal, whereas 46% forcefully said it should be illegal. It’s a sign that Mississippi has made a lot of progress over the years: Some white people are now willing to admit they don’t think the government should keep the races separate. And because PPP also asked about the presidential nomination, it’s interesting to see who these haters support. It turns out people who think interracial marriage should be illegal like one candidate especially: Sarah Palin.

Palin’s net favorability with folks who think interracial marriage should be illegal (+55 at 74/19) is 17 points higher than it is with folks who think interracial marriage should be legal (+38 at 64/26.) Meanwhile Romney’s favorability numbers see the opposite trend. He’s at +23 (53/30) with voters who think interracial marriage should be legal but 19 points worse at +4 (44/40) with those who think it should be illegal.

Mike Huckabee does pretty well with the anti-interracial marriage crowd too. Perhaps that was the key issue that was holding him back from securing the GOP nomination in 2008. “It’s the white people marrying colored people/economy, stupid!”

Before you judge, though, these Mississippians have perfectly good reasons to ban marriage between people who don’t happen to be the same race:

“I believe God made us a different color for a reason and should be honored by not marrying outside of the race that God picked for me, however the color of one’s skin does not make him/her better than another color.”

God made people different colors so they’d be easier to organize! That’s all! Stop messing up his organization system. He gets really OCD when his things are messed up. So quit loving each other, people who don’t look the same! [PPP]

        I don't care what the so-called "data" shows, my own personal experience (and I enjoy ALL the flavors, mind you) tells me that when I hook up with a black dude, I have a good reason to look forward to not sitting down much the following day.

        • XOhioan

          A white dude with a little peen just downfisted you.

          "my own personal experience (and I enjoy ALL the flavors, mind you) tells me that when I hook up with a black dude, I have a good reason to look forward to not sitting down much the following day. "

          I remember reading somewhere (unfortunately, I can't cite the source, since it's been awhile) that one of the major companies who makes rubbers (Trojan, I think), actually did the research on this subject so they could market their product in different sizes.

          The results were that… pardon my unladylike turn of phrase here… black guys had bigger dicks than white guys, and Asian guys had smaller dicks than white guys… but the difference on average was only 1/2 inch or so.
          Um… go, science?

    • pbrex

      Just remember, every time you generalize peen size based on race some bitch you hate gets wrecked by an Asian with a 7" cock

      • horsedreamer_1

        Exactly. I recall Savage Love, many, many years ago, quoting a (bogus) survey of phallus size. The difference in average length between blacks & whites was negligible; only Japanese dongs (of course, Dong is not a Japanese surname, so it figures) came in at a quarter-inch shorter, on average, than other dongs.

      There's a reason Chappelle named his "black white-supremacist" Clayton. Close enough to Clarence to be understood, as such, but removed enough that Ol' Small Government Federalist Clarence couldn't sue for slander (& take up the courts's time & money on such frivolity).

      It ended. It's just that one side still hasn't realized that they lost.

      • emmelemm

        They haven't lost… they just found a sneakier way to "win" – i.e. taking far more tax money than they contribute, and controlling the public discourse on "social issues" – for the last 150 years.

        For being the side that "lost", they're pretty much in charge.

    • GOPCrusher

      You too? I have a friend that does that, and when I asked him why, he says "I don't know, I just have always done it."
      He was a virgin until he got married at 45 years old.

    Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix. — Leon M. Bazile, Virginia judge, 1958

    If God intended us to intermarry, he would have given us wings.

      that quote makes it sound like god created the earth as a giant board game,

      Right. And lots of fat white guys wear shirts that says "Ole Miss" across the chest.

    Oh and BTW, Mississippi rethuglicans is OK with 14 year old cousins marrying, 12 year olds if one of em's pregnant.

    Hey Jack, you forgot the next part!

    We asked voters on this poll whether they think interracial marriage should be legal or illegal- 46% of Mississippi Republicans said it should be illegal to just 40% who think it should be legal. On the subject of inter-species marriage, 42% of Mississippi Republicans said it should be legal to marry any farm animal while 38% said only mammalian farm animals could be wed to humans.

At least 1/3 of those people saying interracial marriage should be illegal HAD to be just fucking with the guy.

  • Lost_Teabaggers

    Considering Mississippi literally saw 88% of its honky population vote McCain in 2008 while 94% of its black populace sanely picked Obama, this is neither a shock nor unexpected. I keep saying this to teabaggers…you can't pretend theres no racism in your group when a full 6% voted against Obama simply because he's black in 2008. That was 6% who was honest enough to admit it…which for Republicans, is a pretty high %. But something between 45-52% of Republicans also think Barry was born in Kenya, too. What I'm saying is, to cut to the chase….you stupid racist bastard Republicans, grow up fucking finally! It's 2011, Jesus Christ you people hold onto racism with a vigor most people hold onto life with….fucking unbelieveable…you dumb, sow fucking…chislers…. :grumbles: can't wait for the next civil war so we get to kill these inbred assholes all over again…
