Tyra Talks To The Interracial Couple Denied A Marriage License In Louisiana


Yesterday on “The Tyra Show,” Tyra talked to the interracial couple who was denied a marriage license by a Louisiana justice of the peace last year. Beth Humphrey, who is white, described how she called about a license for her and Terence McKay, who is black, and the woman she spoke to on the phone asked, “Is this an interracial marriage?” Then they were informed this justice only marries couples of the same race. (The justice, Keith Bardwell, said he was “not a racist” but was only concerned for “the children” — because duh, everyone knows you can’t make interracial babies without getting married first.)
