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

[ad_1]

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.

Read the excerpt from the US Supreme court case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). The statute of Louisiana, acts of 1890, c. 111, requiring railway companies carrying passengers in their coaches in that State, to provide equal, but separate, accommodations for the white and colored races, by providing two or more passenger coaches for each passenger train, or by dividing the passenger coaches by a partition so as to secure separate accommodations; and providing that no person shall be permitted to occupy seats in coaches other than the ones assigned to them, on account of the race they belong to; and requiring the officer of the passenger train to assign each passenger to the coach or compartment assigned for the race to which he or she belong; and imposing fines or imprisonment upon passengers insisting on going into a coach or compartment other than the one set aide for the race to which he or she belongs; and conferring upon officers of the train power to refuse to carry on the train passengers refusing to occupy the coach or compartment assigned to them, and exempting the railway company from liability for such refusal, are not in conflict with the provisions either of the Thirteenth Amendment or of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Which best explains why the Supreme Court’s decision in Plessy v. Ferguson was unconstitutional? The Supreme Court’s ruling allowed states to deny equal protection to any person within its jurisdiction. Since the 14th Amendment did not make concessions for people born outside the US, the Supreme Court’s decision could not be applied. The Supreme Court’s decision gave individual states the freedom to make their own laws in relation to non-whites. Since segregation laws did not provide equal protections or liberties to non-whites, the ruling was not consistent with the 14th Amendment.

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

Hope this helps

Identify the most significant land and sea routes in the fourteenth century. what societies tended to control and profit from these routes?

[ad_1]

Abolitionists in the US: for the abolition

Cotton plantation owners of southern US: against abolition

Fugitive Slaves: for the abolition

Slave traders: against abolition

– Abolitionists were a minority of Americans that advocated against slavery and defended the emancipation of the slaves and equal rights for all Americans.

– Cotton plantations used slave workforce. When Eli Whitney invented the Cotton Gin in 1793 it increased the demand for cotton, and this increased the demand for slaves, in 1803 over 20 thousand slaves were brought to the southern US to work in cotton fields.

– Fugitive Slaves were against slavery obviously because of all the horrible treatment and forced work they endured. Because of this they were forced to be fugitive and could be even sentenced to death because they ran away from forced labor.

– Slave traders were against abolition especially because slavery was their main business. Without slavery, they would not have profit.

The first southern state to approve the fourteenth amendment and be readmitted to the union was ____??

[ad_1]

The 2nd Amendment was added to the constitution to protect American citizens’ right to keep and bear arms.

The Second Amendment (December 1791) is one of 10 amendments that are part of the Bill of Rights, it states the following:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Even though the statute aimed to support the rights of self-defense or defense of the state and resistance to oppression in more hostile times, it is still debated nowadays, regarding whether it protects a private right of individuals or militia organizations to keep and bear arms.
