  • Affirmative Action Works There Are Thousands Of Examples Of Situations Where People Of Color, White Women, And Working Class - 1,451 words
    Affirmative action works. There are thousands of examples of situations where people of color, white women, and working class women and men of all races who were previously excluded from jobs or educational opportunities, or were denied opportunities once admitted, have gained access through affirmative action. When these policies received executive branch and judicial support, vast numbers of people of color, white women and men have gained access they would not otherwise have had. These gains have led to very real changes. Affirmative action programs have not eliminated racism, nor have they always been implemented without problems. However, there would be no struggle to roll back the gain ...

  • Bill Of Rights - 1,272 words
    Bill Of Rights After the Revolution, the States adopted their own constitutions, many of which contained the Bill of Rights. The Americans still faced the challenge of creating a central government for their new nation. In 1777 the Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation, which were ratified in 1781. Under the Articles, the states retained their "sovereignty, freedom and independence," while the national government was kept weak and inferior. Over the next few years it became evident that the system of government that had been chosen was not strong enough to completely settle and defend the frontier, regulating trade, currency and commerce, and organizing thirteen states i ...

  • Brown V Board Of Education - 319 words
    Brown v. Board of Education Subject: History --Brown v. Board of Education Brown v. Board of Education In 1896 the Supreme Court had held in Plessy v. Ferguson that racial segregation was permissible as long as equal facilities were provided for both races. Although that decision involved only passenger accommodations on a rail road, the principle of "separate but equal" was applied thereafter to all aspects of public life in states with large black populations. Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, decided on May 17, 1954, was one of the most important cases in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court. Linda Brown had been denied admission to an elementary school in Topeka because she ...

  • Civil Rights - 1,585 words
    Civil Rights Civil rights are freedoms and rights guaranteed to a member of a community, state, or nation. Freedom of speech, of the press, of religion, and of fair and equal treatment are the basic civil rights. The constitution of the United States contains a Bill of Rights that describes simple liberties and rights insured to every person in the United States. Although the Bill of Rights is the first ten amendments to the Constitution, civil rights were not always respected to all human beings, especially women and blacks. When the constitution was first written, many Americans understood the meaning of the famous inscripture all men are created equal to mean that all white males were cre ...

    The Little Rock Integration Crisis The Little Rock Integration Crisis Nearly a century after the conclusion of the civil war, our nation was still not united. However, no longer was tension between the north and south threatening the welfare of our country, but instead the segregation of African-Americans. A primary goal in the civil war was abolishing slavery and although that was accomplished, many believed that blacks were hardly better off. However, a sense that change was necessary had swept across the United States. The desegregation movement was just beginning and the effects of the Little Rock Integration Crisis was one of the earliest stepping stones leading towards a united nation; ...

So it's the position of the solicitor general's office that wives should call the police when their husbands are using prostitutes? Justice Anthony M. Kennedy asked. The laughter in the courtroom, which appeared to be coming from the justices' clerks, prompted Kennedy to add, Don't let the laughter of clerks who have never even argued a case in a municipal court deter you from your answer. Eventually, the confiscation was upheld 5-4, with Souter and Kennedy among the dissenters. While the give-and-take usually is domina ...

The chief justice is also in charge of running the meeting. Among the richest sources of inside information about the court are papers of the late Justice Thurgood Marshall from 1967-1991. They describe negotiations as cases moved through the process. They show, for example, that only the bare minimum of four votes did the justices accept a case that eventually yielded an important 1990 ruling on religious freedom. Unlike the secret meeting to select cases, the court's next step is quite public. Oral ...
