Quote Of The Year

By Ta-Nehisi Coates

Keith Bardwell, Louisiana justice of the peace explaining why he refused to grant a marriage license to an interracial couple...

"I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way,"

Of course Bardwell isn't a racist. There aren't any racists in America.
