the united state of texas

if you're goin' to san antonio anytime soon, bring along your passport 'cause texas wants to secede. and it's not the first time. a nice wrap-up on secession and states rights from wild sheep chasing includes this:
The last time Texas wanted to secede this was the reason:

“We hold as undeniable truths that the governments of the various States, and of the confederacy itself, were established exclusively by the white race, for themselves and their posterity; that the African race had no agency in their establishment; that they were rightfully held and regarded as an inferior and dependent race, and in that condition only could their existence in this country be rendered beneficial or tolerable.”
i wonder if they actually have a different reason this time around?
