    It only took 147 years but, they finally ratified the 13th Amendment, banning slavery! Now do you just, "forget", something like that?

    In 2013, Mississippi was finally dragged kicking and screaming into the late 19th century.

    Late to the party, and while they claim it was a clerical error...technically I could still be put to work in the cotton field if I went there.

    But when did the clerical error occur? 1995! So even giving them the benefit of the doubt, Ole Miss' had slavery on the books until Seinfeld and Simpsons were on the air.

    Nah, the the amendment was still ratified by 2/3's or more of the states at the time. Despite the lack of local ratification, it was still law. Now whether or not local authorities would enforce said laws...

    I’m not positive, but I think you would have been covered by the “supremacy clause” - a state law cannot contravene a federal law (in this case, the 13th Amendment).

    Edit: what redhawk23 said.

    I am particularly amused and pleased that it took an immigrant science professor from Asia to discover that this American historical anomaly has existed for this long.


    To be honest, neither of you would be in any danger, mainly because America doesn't actually make anything anymore. :o

    Aren't they also the last to still be using the confederate symbol in their state flag? Or is that just another "oversight" on their part that somehow accidentally "...slipped through the cracks.":whatever:
    In 1995? What a freakin joke.

    Technically, being ahead of the curve doesn't count when you're still 10 laps down.
