The equality act holds the evidence of allowing everyone to be considered and given permission to be equal and have rights. But because of the rules against marriage between two different people not in the same race, the act is not being followed and being held back from these people and their natural born rights. Mildred Loving and her white husband Richard Loving got married in Washington since miscegenation laws didn’t allow them to marry in Virginia, they came back to their home and arrested later in the middle of the night because they were living together and because they were together and married they got jailed for a year and banished from Virginia for twenty five years.
