Say what? That is the Declaration of Independence, which is a political document, and not legal at all. Anyway, our anti-discrimination clause is in the 14th Amendment: No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Remember that the U.S. *has* an autonomous local level, unlike most nations. State constitutions have a lot more details than the federal constitution does (and are changed a lot more often, too). -- John Cowan To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all.
