I just told you why. It is an anomaly.
Yeah, the war was practically over by then. So, do you agree that the South had a right to slavery before the 13th amendment?
Do you think the emancipation proclamation was legal?
And why have they had to "put up with" anything? Because it is an anomaly. It is abnormal. It is weird. It is not natural. It is not normal.
No, you didn't and if you're going to cut off 90% of my post then don't bother quoting me at all.
Well....yes and no. If anyone was "imported" from Africa - yes. For any slave born in the U.S. - no (because they were U.S. citizens and thus entitled to all rights and freedoms afforded to all U.S. citizens).
And the U.S. Constitution trumps your progressivism.
You repeal the 13th and it would still be illegal to own non-citizens.
Was the emancipation proclamation illegal? Did the Union forces have the right to take territory in the South?
So far it hasn't.
Want to bet? It's trumped it every time.
