And, interestingly enough, the original draft(s) of the 2nd didn't either. Weird, huh? Must be as you say, they really meant it to only apply to a special, protected class...

(which is, ironically true, if you restate 'special, protected class...' to equal 'white people'. It's just not the restriction you are implying)

That's what happens when you let rednecks play with anti-matter!
