Mississippi finally ratified the 13th amendment (that's the one that bans slavery) recently. Yes, that's correct -- 147 years after it was adopted as federal law, Mississippi finally went ahead and ratified it as state law.
"Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell" found this patently absurd ("There was a time when you could buy a slave and a Spin Doctors album"), but they chose to be optimistic about it. Because if the last state finally did away with slavery, that must mean only one thing...
RACISM IS OVER!
...That is, until you remember the story of the old man who slapped a baby and called him the N-word on a plane. Back to the drawing board, America.
