Because freedom can't protect itself
What a COMPLETE load of horse shit. I remember when the ACLU was a good thing. Times sure have changed. You should be outlawed along with the KKK.
Imagine what history would have looked like back then if the federal government had continued to permit the South to erect and enforce its own discriminatory laws, and Congress and the U.S. Department of Justice turned the other way?
Well... This time around, it is not just Congress and USDOJ. With mafiosi thug type stooges of a certain party which shall not be named (who do not deem it necessary to read through a legislation in order to throw it out, based purely upon its length) ruling the roost at the supreme law-interpreting body, the system has been completely subverted. There is absolutely no hope for the Constitution to be upheld, let alone for citizens of non-Caucasian races to get any justice.
It might be far easier for Congress to officially recognize and institute different classes of citizenship, with varying degrees of rights (or the lack thereof) and based purely upon race and ethnicity.
It might even be helpful to make a legal requirement for all non-Caucasian and/or naturalized citizens to have U.S. CITIZEN officially tattoed in big, bold letters and barcoded upon their foreheads - it might actually make their lives a lot easier. Or perhaps it might be more efficient to implant non-counterfeitable non-compromizable high-tech RFID chips under their skins - the initial costs may be high, but in the longer run they would be cost-effective for the security alone.
The sooner we understand that a certain party (which, of course, shall remain to be unnamed) has ceased to be a party long ago, and has turned itself into a dangerous, subversive, anti-American organization, the better it shall be for all of us. Or perhaps it indeed is a bit too late.
Le Roi est mort, Long live the U.S. Constitution!
