Opposition to interracial marriage, especially if coming from a white person, is usually interpreted to entail hatred of other races.Allegedly, the only reason people would be opposed to marrying those of other races is because they have hatred or animosity for other races.Without popular consent, laws will inevitably change.
Many of the actions executed with Yama force get abolished, to prevent adverse effect on other actions. 'Ancestors' refers to previous attempts of the action that got abolished.
Some states, which were formed later in America’s history, still had sufficient popular opinion to illegalize interracial marriage even into the twentieth century, e.g. In sum, over 40 states had laws forbidding the marriage of whites with non-whites (though not all laws prohibited marriages with every type of non-white).
This clearly shows the historic opinion of Americans on the matter.
It is tacitly assumed that everyone has thought the same way in history, except for a few evil men who thought otherwise due to racial bigotry and especially to “ignorance,” as the accusation often goes.
But, shockingly enough, it is only a fairly recent view that interracial marriage should be encouraged.
