This is amusing. The southern nationalist crowd now thinks they should have their own national identification on the census. The Washington Post reports:
With roughly one week until census forms are due, a group of Confederate rights activists is urging southerners with Confederate ancestors to declare themselves “Confederate Southern Americans” on census forms in order to qualify for national origin protection under the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

The North Carolina-based Southern Legal Resource Center believes that people with ancestors who were citizens of the Confederate States of America should be entitled to ethnic identity and protection since the country no longer exists.
It never really did exist. It was declared to exist but that’s about all. You lost, folks. Get over it already. Here’s video:
