Yet, what is noteworthy here is the persistence of anti-miscegenation legislation for a very large portion of American history.

Some states, which were formed later in America’s history, still had sufficient popular opinion to illegalize interracial marriage even into the twentieth century, e.g. In sum, over 40 states had laws forbidding the marriage of whites with non-whites (though not all laws prohibited marriages with every type of non-white).

Consider how America, including blacks, has historically opposed miscegenation.

Consider also that many more examples than those above could likewise be produced.

In a speech he delivered in 1968, Muhammad Ali said quite directly that all white men and women “in their right minds” would oppose miscegenation, and then he said the same about blacks as well (watch the video here).

He shows us a stark example of a black man who, when all the talk of racial integration and black civil rights was on the American political landscape, still viewed miscegenation as unnatural and wrong — and his audience did not brand him as racist and bigoted for doing so.
