Thanks for the replies. That definitely makes the issue clearer. Unfortunately, when in debates with people about the right of secession, they will quickly bring up quotes or opinions from southerners that are extremely racist. However, their conclusion then that secession is unlawful seems to be a conflation of two entirely separate issues as you all seem to agree ^^^
