The case coming on for a hearing before the Supreme Court, that court was of opinion that the law under which the prosecution had was constitutional, and denied the relief prayed for by the petitioner. Ex parte Plessy, 45 La.Ann. 80. Whereupon petitioner prayed for a writ of error from this court, which was allowed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Louisiana. MR.

Industrialization led to rising imperialism because 
1) show of power: As one makes new technology, they would either want to test it out or show the other nations that what they produce is ground-breaking and the best. Usually if it is military technology, you would want to test it out, and with the use of “show of force”, can have people groups submit to your country.
2) Better technology: As technology advances, it usually makes something easier. In the case of imperialism, better military advances meant that they could (once again) have other people submit to you
3) Better transportation: This meant that you could take multiple countries at once, and can prove that you’re country is great by having supplies shipped over long distances to keep your troops up. If in need of more troops, you could send more.

How did some states respond to the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments? A.People used the judiciary to place limits on African-Americans. B.States passed laws to work around Constitutional law. C.Some state officials moved African-Americans to other states. D.Some states ignored the Constitution


The correct answer is B.

After the US Civil War,  the federal goverment aimed to guarantee equality of rights for all US citizens, by including such provision in the  US Constitution. This happened during the so-called Reconstruction era, through the enactment of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments in 1865, 1868 and 1870 respectively. These amendments abolished slavery and included the Equal Protection clause, that guaranteed equality of rights for all US citizens without discrimination in terms of race, color or previous condition of servitude.

Many Southern states disagreed with the Equal Protection clause and started to issue laws which aimed to circumvent it. These are called Jim Crow laws.

For example, for preventing black citizens from voting, newly-enacted laws set voting requirements, such as a minimum income level or a literacy test. In the end, the result of such laws, was that most black citizens could not exercise their right to vote.

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.
