    • Abstract:
      The article talks about the restriction of white women to marry only white men. The author mentions that miscegenation laws aimed to promote the supremacy of white race by regulating and restricting the freedom of white individuals to choose who they should marry. He reports that segregationists feared that African Americans would gain social equality when they enter into intimate relations if there are no legal restrictions. A discussion of the decision of the United States Supreme Court regarding the "Loving versus Virginia" case is also presented.
