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:
The Georgia Journal of Southern Legal History
Volume 1 Number 1
Was the Fourteenth Amendment Constitutionally
Dr. Forrest McDonald is a professor of history at the University of
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
-- 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
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
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
We think that this issue is very important and that it should be
investigated in detail by all White citizens.
