Okay, here is the corrected e-list item that I mentioned. [if you post it permanently, e.g. in Net Losses, please don't credit me....thanks...]

The 14th Amendment
 
Modern civil-rights laws in America - i.e. laws making Blacks legally equal to Whites - are based on the 14th Amendment, which was ratified  in 1868. That amendment contains the infamous "equal protection" clause.
 
But was that amendment legally ratified in the first place? If that amendment wasn't legally ratified, then modern civil-rights laws, such as the massive, far-reaching Civil Rights Act of 1964, are unconstitutional.
 
Allow us to quote a book:
 
"ADDENDUM X
 
Abstract
 
The Georgia Journal of Southern Legal History
 
Spring/Summer 1991
 
Volume 1 Number 1
 
Was the Fourteenth Amendment Constitutionally Adopted?
 
Dr. Forrest McDonald is a professor of history at the University of Alabama...
 
[...]
 
He also noted that by declaring that the Southern states were without legal governments, Congress had trapped itself in a contradiction -- earlier Congress had accepted the ratifications by the Southern states to the Thirteenth Amendment, but now Congress had declared these same states to be illegal."
-- from the book "The South Was Right!" (Gretna, Louisiana; Pelican Publishing Co.; 1991/1994/1998), by James R. Kennedy and Walter D. Kennedy, p. 377-378. That book is good and recommended.
 
That makes a great point: how could "illegal" Southern states legally ratify a Northern-created constitutional amendment? Obviously they couldn't if they weren't legal entities. Indeed, Congress mandated that the Southern states could not rejoin the Union until they ratified the 14th Amendment, so obviously they weren't considered to be "legal" states at that time.
 
Not only that, but three Northern states [Ohio, Oregon and New Jersey] later withdrew their ratifications of the 14th Amendment, meaning that Congress didn't have enough ratifications to make the 14th Amendment valid.
 
If the 14th Amendment was not properly ratified, then the U.S. government has been violating the rights of White citizens on a massive scale for decades, e.g. by forcing Whites to hire, and rent property to, Blacks and other racial minorities via the civil-rights acts of the 1960s. In fact, that would amount to White-rights violations of truly mind-boggling proportions.
 
We think that this issue is very important and that it should be investigated in detail by all White citizens.
