I've already voted NO on that hateful law that impinges on everyone's right to enter into a legal contract of their free will and choosing. I do fear that Virginia, as with Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967), Docket Number: 395, that VA will end up being a major test case for this issue as well. :|
having read the full opinion for Loving, it turns out it was decided on a technicality. VA's antimiscegenation was unconstitutional becasue it only prevented whites from marrying others. Had the law been that all marriages had ot be between people of the same race, rather than allowing any combo except white+not-white, things likely would be quite different, at leasth through our early childhood.
