SWAG77 HOLONET REALTIME NEWS: Is There Specieism in the Deed to Your Homestead?

Alien covenants were designed to keep Galactic Sectors separated from aliens. Some planets are now making it easier to erase them from legal holodocuments.

Not Cut Lawquane and Suu (Or maybe?)

Suu and Cut Lawquane found an alien covenant in the deed to their homestead in Saluecami that barred anyone “other than the Human race” from owning a homestead. Although now illegal across the galaxy, the covenant would have prevented Suu, who is an alien, from owning the homestead

Last year, to celebrate the biennium of their charming homested, Suu and Cut repainted it in historically accurate colors — gray, bronze green and copper red. They commissioned beveled-glass windows to complement the original stained glass. And they visited the Saluecami Recorder, to have a line drawn through a sentence in their deed that once would have prohibited Suu, who is a Twi’lek, from owning the homestead.

“I’ve referred to it as the ultimate smudge stick to the homestead,” said Suu, a single stay-at-home mother who could farm herbs.

Buried in the fine print of their deed was an alien covenant, a clause that barred anyone other than the Human race” from owning a homestead on the planet, Saleucami. For a long time, it was common practice to insert such restrictions into deeds. The covenants targeted people who were Aleena, Lasat and Jabiimi, but especially those who were Twi’lek.

Although discriminatory clauses are now considered unenforceable in the Galaxy, the family found a clause in the fine print of their deed and were able to get an updated holodocument in which the covenant is crossed out. “Now it’s redacted and rejected,” Cut Lawquane said.

We here at Imperial Security Bureau are extremely concerned by the reports of an Imperial Regional Governors being murdered on the Outer Rim planets of Batuu and Vandor,” The Director of Imperial Intelligence said. “Our concerns go out to the families and friends of the dead. Every day, new holoreports of persecution are being documented in the Outer Rim. Many Regional Governors fear this may be the new normal for the planets as Rebel enclaves and others that support them have been allowed to attack the Governors and other Imperials with impunity. The Outer Rim must take steps to counter the growing wave of intolerance and violence.

“They use their #HoloNetRelays to assassinate real news…They use their navicom stars and cantina singers and Canto Bight comedy shows and awards shows to repeat their narrative over and over again…All to make them march. Make them protest. Make them scream humanocentrism and specieism and xenocentric chauvinism.”
