    These sodomy laws must be challenged and stricken from the books. Marshall spent his early law career challenging states that attempted to criminalize being black. The restrictions on blacks were carried out in violation of the 14th amendment but Marshall had a helluva time with a majority population that thought it was perfectly reasonable to keep little white girls away from little black boys. These sick people had the same idea as those who think gays are all sexual offenders. It gave people enough rage to have the stomach to hang a black man for even thinking about a white woman.

    Terrorism. Criminalizing people or sexual acts that are between consenting adults is the first step of the witch hunt committee.
