Anti-miscegenation laws

I came across this tidbit about anti-miscegenation laws in the US as applied to groups other than blacks in Randall Kennedy’s Interracial Intimacies. In these states, the groups not allowed to marry whites were:

  • Arizona : Mongolians, Malayans, Hindus, Indians
  • California : Mongolians, Malayans
  • Georgia : Japanese, Chinese, Malayans, Asiatic Indians
  • Mississippi : Mongolians
  • Montana : Chinese, Japanese
  • Nebraska : Chinese, Japanese
  • Nevada : Ethiopians, Malays, Mongolians
  • Wyomimg : Malayans, Mongolians
