    Han Say Naim's attorney, David Carliner, attempted to appeal the state's decision to the Supreme Court of the United States, with the backing of the American Jewish Congress, the Japanese American Citizens League, the Association on American Indian Affairs and the Association of Immigration and Nationality Lawyers.[4] The justices, however, refused to consider the appeal, fearing that to do so would further encourage opposition to the enforcement of Brown v. Board of Education.

      I'm particularly interested that North Carolina's miscegenation laws included Native American as an "acceptable" spouse of white person, other than another white person. (And the only exception to white only.)

      Presumably, because during colonial times marriages between Native Americans and settlers where not terribly uncommon, and thus, by 1924, no longer as taboo as marrying, God forbid, an African American or an Asian. And perhaps as a way to grandfather in existing marriages.

      And like there's a huge difference between an Asian and a Native American! Native Americans are just Asians who migrated some milleniums earlier for chrissakes, you dumb asses!

      It just goes to show how arbitrary and senseless these rules where.
