Look Away, Look Away, Look Away

March 30, 2010

The Southern Legal Resource Center sees an important problem in American society: discrimination against Southerners. Their proposed remedy (in part) is for Hearda-Hattas to write in “Confederate Southern Americans” on their Census forms. In so doing, the HHLRC SLRC believes that its members will acquire Constitutional protection on the basis of national origin.

Here’s the problem as I see it – the Confederate States of America was never recognized as sovereign. If memory serves, that’s the reason we went to fucking war. If the CSA had been sovereign with respect to its national identity, it would have been no problem for them to secede. Neither the USA nor any European power recognized the CSA as a nation. If we did so retroactively, we’d be beholden to any hearda hatta who declared himself to be Imperial Wizard of his own country. Very, very bad idea.
