If you’ve ever been to an interracial wedding, you know what it’s like.
It’s a spectacle of people of different races coming together in a big, noisy, and sometimes dangerous way, only to end up in a corner.
This week, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in two cases about marriage equality, and the outcome is a huge deal.
The first case, in Obergefell v.
Hodges, is about marriage.
The other, in Salazar v.
Simmons, is on gay marriage.
Both cases involve the same issue: whether same-sex couples have a right to marry in the United States.
Both involve a narrow interpretation of the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause, which says that people of all races, genders, and ethnicities can enjoy equal rights and protections under the law.
The Supreme Court has not yet decided which case to hear, and it could take years for the court to decide the issue.
Here are five reasons why this issue is so important.
Interracial couples can marry legally in every state In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that state bans on same-gender marriage were unconstitutional.
The ruling struck down bans on gay couples marrying in some states and forced states to recognize gay marriages performed elsewhere.
In June of that year, a three-judge panel of the Supreme Judicial Court in Washington, D.C., unanimously struck down similar bans in several states.
But the case is different from that of Obergev and Salazar because it concerns only marriage between people of the same race.
In Obergevin, the federal government blocked state bans, which were also ruled unconstitutional.
In Salazar, the Court ruled in favor of same-race couples in states that had adopted gay marriage bans, but the federal Supreme Court did not take the case to the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, where the appeals court has jurisdiction.
The result is that the states can now legally marry interracial couples.
This is the first time that states have been able to legally marry people of a different race under the 14 Amendment.
It is also the first major legal victory for interracial and gay couples.
It will make it easier for gay and lesbian couples to get married, but it also could make it harder for same- race couples to find a marriage partner.
Marriage equality is not the same thing as equal protection There are four distinct levels of protection in the 14 Amendment: the equal protection of the laws, the right to equal protection under the laws of the United Stated, the equal benefit of the law, and due process of law.
In order to have a constitutional right to marriage, you have to be equal.
There is no right to a marriage because the government has no power to define who is or is not equal under the Constitution.
But because marriage is one of the most fundamental rights, it is also one of its most controversial rights.
Because it is a constitutional guarantee of the union of a man and a woman, it has been held that the government cannot require gay and transgender people to have separate bathrooms, locker rooms, and other facilities that exclude people of their own race, gender, or sexual orientation.
When gay and trans people seek to enter the workforce, employers have to comply with federal nondiscrimination laws, and they are not allowed to discriminate against them based on race, religion, or national origin.
But there is no guarantee that discrimination will be tolerated if people of another race, ethnicity, or class don’t want to work for the same employer.
Because of the importance of this issue to civil rights and equality, the Justice Department sued California to stop the state from enacting its law.
Two judges ruled in their favor.
In a decision that was reported on by NPR and The New York Times, they said that the state had not shown that it was seeking to impose a substantial burden on an individual’s right to be free from discrimination.
“The law is designed to protect the dignity of all Californians,” the judges wrote.
“It does not seek to impose any significant burden on any of the fundamental rights of the state.”
And the Justice Court agreed with the decision.
“We conclude that the law does not deny an individual the right of equal protection,” they wrote.
But they added, “The court is concerned that California’s law may not protect all California residents.”
It means that gay and lesbians can get married legally in all 50 states In February, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a preliminary ruling that found that California has a nondiscriminatory policy toward gay and straight employees.
But that finding was quickly reversed.
On March 13, the EEOC released a final ruling that said California’s nondiscretionary policy does not violate the Equal Protection Clause.
And the EOCC has since expanded the scope of its analysis to include other employment policies that the EEOC says discriminate against gays and lesbians.
In its opinion, the
