Although it’s said these laws are no longer enforced, they could be. The stains and pains of a very dark past on People’s that lived on these lands thousands of years before europeans may not be removed or forgotten, we most certainly can repeal these laws as a very important step. All the People who encompass this land are kept separated from each other by racism, hate and fear. Not only does this law show that the American Government wishes to move forward , but it helps to unify all People who call this land home. How can we even begin to think we’re the best nation in the world when there are still barbaric enslavement laws that could actually be enforced at any moment to terrorize our Native Americans? Remember, when our government terrorizes anyone... that’s called security which is enforced by homeland security and ICE, which is legal. A truly great nation accepts all and protects all equally regardless of economic value, race, gender or religious beliefs. So: if these laws are no longer enforced... then they should be cleared off the books... for all time.
