Better late than never.
Last week, the Alabama state legislation passed an amendment to their state constitution that would eliminated all outdated and ignorant racial references and segregationist laws.
In a 22-9 vote, will ALL of the Republicans voting in favor, the measure was passed to remove references to "Jim Crow" and any language that calls for separation of black and white individuals. The proposed amendment will now move to the House of Representatives for consideration. If signed by the governor, it must go to voters for approval.
Um, excuse you, nine democrat Alabama senators - you mind telling us what your beef is? Some reason you want to keep your state constitution racist and outdated? The thing was written in 1901 for crying out loud! That's over a century!
Get with the times people! Get with the times!
P.S. - Their constitution is also ridiculously long! with 827 amendments and 340,000 words, it's 40 times longer than the U.S. Constitution. Wowza!
