Interracial couples: two alarming cases 

Marcus Dixon, of Rome, Georgia, an 18-year old black student with a 3.96 GPA, was about to head to Vanderbilt on a football scholarship. Instead, he is serving a ten year jail sentence for having consensual sex with another teen, who is white.

And via Demagogue, Gastonia, NC resident Robert May today received a jail sentence of one month for burning a cross outside the home of an interracial couple and threatening them with firearms.

UPDATE: Sign a petition against the conviction of Marcus Dixon.
