What is more taboo in the south: a catholic dating a jew or white dating black?
- Anonymous6 years agoFavorite Answer
Nowadays, I do not think either is taboo, or probably would cause much concern. Prior to the 1960's, however, a white dating a black would be completely unacceptable. In most, if not all, Southern states, marriages between a white and a black, or sexual relations between a white and a black, were criminal offenses. Look up "miscegenation," and you will see.
In 1938, a Justice of the Florida Supreme Court wrote that, "In the south miscegenation is socially odious." See Goldman v. Dithrich, 131 Fla. 408, 417, 179 So. 715 (1938) (Brown, J., dissenting).
As long as the Catholic and the Jew were both of the same race, no one would have cared, but before the 1960's, interracial anything was heavily disapproved of by most elements of white society in the South.

With very very few exceptions none of those scenarios would be taboo here in the South anymore.

Neither one is taboo
People in "the South" are more tolerant than people in the North

Your question would have been relevant in 1965 but not today

Way to stereotype people from the south.

Why is it that so many more racial questions come from people who only think that they are tolerant?
