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

Please no diatribes or theses dissertations about everything wrong with the franchise.
JUST ANSWER THE QUESTION:
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM THE STAR WARS FANDOM?
I as the owner of SWAG77 supports the basis of #Juneteenth. However, SLAVERY GLOBALLY still exists. Here’s a flyer from @EndSlaveryNow to understand the issue & for this 1st US Juneteenth let’s donate to end all human trafficking.
Here’s why it’s important for all Comic Fans to end human trafficking: Before all this toxic fandom lunacy, fans thought it was okay to talk sexually in DMs. Having accounts showing off as slaves and flirting with people who they thought were of similar age. The slave accounts were all manned by individuals who were underage. But the “pimps” and “Johns” were real, some of them were pedophiles who follow the exact descriptions that End Slavery Now outlines.
Sure, I made mistakes in 2011, too. But I am not an asshole anymore, and I stopped making our mistakes and moved on. But I will never forget the harassment I got when I questioned the intent of “roleplay slave girl accounts” — which was to flirt with someone sexually as a moniker for roleplay in private messages. If sex roleplay cannot be performed publicly on a social media platform, then it probably should not be done privately. And they were not writing fanfiction at the time, so what are they practicing, exactly as fun? To roam around the platform flirting with anyone with a lot of lewd sexual language without context and no account marks and not think they will be discovered for their indiscretions?
The internet is forever, and these individuals said what they wanted to say me to silence me. They never thought I would not be able to use it against them as revenge. Yes, your posts may be 10 years old, and yes, you may have changed your minds. But no. Your real-life character is full of lies, and you will always be that shitty person that hurt me all those long years ago that I will never forget. Forgive. Doubtful. For what you did, I don’t care anymore. But you don’t believe in Juneteeth, Black people, their struggles, and what it is all about based on these 10-year-old tweets.
At least at that time, I already had a life of success. I chose to pursue this field of study. But these attacks are what the screenshots are for. And to think these lunatics tried to attack me on Facebook without me reporting them?
I will never, forget what was done to me. And here’s my proof. Never. Toxic fandom.
