Something important that is not discussed in that article about the end of The Jim Crow Era was the US Supreme Court decision in the case Loving v. Virginia in 1967.In that case, Richard Loving was a white man who married a black woman. They were Virginians. However, they could not get married in Virginia because mixed-race marriages were illegal there. So, they got married in Washington DC. So, they were living in Virginia illegally as man and wife. They got caught and were going to go to prison, but were given the opportunity to leave Virginia. They did; they moved to DC but were unhappy. They moved back to Virginia and were caught again. However, the ACLU discovered their situation and decided to intervene on their behalf. Ultimately, the US Supreme Court said Virginia's "miscegenation laws" were unconstitutional. That's the last Jim Crow Era law that I remember. However, we STILL live in The Jim Crow Era, in a way. For instance, the ways in which police discriminate between Blacks and Whites in the way they deal with people. George Floyd is just such an example. If George Floyd was White, he'd still be alive.This is why #BLM is such a big deal.It's time to end ALL of the Jim Crow Era.
