This separation was wrong then. It was based on hate. It was based on fear. It was based on the idea that one group of people is somehow superior to another. It goes against the idea that God lovingly creates each one of us no matter the colour of our skin, the language we speak, our sex, our gender identity, our citizenship status, or the religion we practise. And we must raise our voices against such segregation.
But the spirit of such laws has been showing it's ugly head once more. Much was made of Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky, who refused to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples because it went against her religious beliefs. She eventually was jailed for not doing her job. Other businesses have attempted to follow suit. Signs such as no blacks, no gays, no illegal aliens, no muslims, no jews, no immigrants have popped up all over. Jim Crow is alive all around the world. And again such laws are still as wrong as they ever were.
