Interracial Marriage is marriage between two people of different races, such as Black, White, or Hispanic.
Under the Jim Crow Laws, interracial marriages were illegal, but in Loving v. Virginia the Supreme Court ruled that laws against interracial marriages were invalid.
Now, such marriages have become a more accepted part of American society. However, there are still extremist groups that teach such marriages are forbidden in the Bible. Such groups wrongly use the "Curse of Ham" as justification for this.
