What have truth, wisdom and enlightenement got to do with it?

This is a temporal matter, and if Yogananda did ever have a policy preventing inter-racial marriage it was acceptable by the standards of the time.

Yogananda was primarily a spiritual teacher, not a social reformer. It is not true that any enlightened teacher must be ahead of their time as far as social issues are concerned. St. Paul for example was quite happy to return a slave to his master, while Jesus refused to lead any rebellion against the injustices of Roman rule. The customs of the time are not the concern of a spiritual teacher with a lasting message.
