And people wonder why we waste time on Confederate nostalgia. I bet that these folks are incensed that the United States is currently governed by a NOT EVEN REAL MURICAN!!!!
Happy Friday! With roughly one week until census forms are due, a group of Confederate rights activists is urging southerners with Confederate ancestors to declare themselves “Confederate Southern Americans” on census forms in order to qualify for national origin protection under the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Federal law makes it illegal to discriminate because of a person’s birthplace, ancestry, culture or language. The
SouthNorth Carolina-based Southern Legal Resource Center believes that people with ancestors who were citizens of the Confederate States of America should be entitled to ethnic identity and protection since the country no longer exists.
