A racist judge on why he's not racist.

You've likely heard of Louisiana Judge Keith Bardwell, who recently refused to issue a marriage license to a couple because the groom is black, and the bride white. Understandably, lots of people want him fired.

His overt racism aside, Louisiana judges should be further embarrassed to call this guy one of their own on account of his failure to use basic logic...

That's right, when asked how he would respond to someone asking him if he was racist, he replied
Aboslutely not... My definition of a racist is to hate black people, or treat black people different than anybody else.

Surely denying someone a marriage license based on their race doesn't fit either of those definitions, right?
