Only in the South...

A Republican candidate for the South Carolina Senate wants "Confederate Southern Americans" declared a minority group entitled to the same protections as blacks and Hispanics. "Confederate Southern Americans are a separate and distinct people," said Ron Wilson. "Confederate Southern Americans are tired of being the 'whipping boy' for the rest of the country." Wilson says states have the right to secede from the union, though he does not think secession is necessary at this time.
