New Census Category: “Confederate Southern American”

, , , , , , ,


The seal of the Confederate States of America

The Southern Legal Resource Center wants to use the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 to protect the civil rights of a generally unrecognized minority. It wants persons of Southern Confederate ancestry to be recognized as a racial group. Sounds fair to me. But what about more recently arrived Confederates like myself? I was born in Pennsylvania, and my ancestors were all residing in Lithuania at the time of the late unpleasantness, but I currently do claim citizenship in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Shouldn’t more recent immigrants be able to claim “Confederate Southern American” status via naturalization?

I guess I’ll just have to fill out my census form as suggested, and take my chances.

Lithuania, Pennsylvania? No Prob – we welcome you as a Confederate Southern american by affirmation – as is allowed under the CFR on definitions of National origin discrimination.

As a Confederate American, I wish to say “THANK YOU” to the “SLRC”
