From the article: "Loving stood for two principles. First, all citizens have the fundamental right to marry...Secondly, Loving reminds us that all people should be treated equally. Loving corrected the longstanding inequalities of Jim Crow that perpetuated white supremacy. When race separatists argued that antimiscegenation laws still allowed everyone to marry -- only with someone of the same race -- Loving exposed this an illogical branch of equality."
