This however, was impossible as these separate but equal facilities were never actually equal. White viewed this ruling as fair under the 14th Amendment as it provided rights to Blacks.
    -In the Civil Rights Cases (1883) the Supreme Court ruled that Congress didn’t have the power to enforce provisions of the 14th Amendment to stop individuals and organizations from practicing racial discrimination. Only the government was prohibited to violate any civil rights of citizens.
    -Even after the passage of the 14th Amendment, Blacks were not granted the right to vote. When the 15th amendment clearly gave them the right to vote, White Southerners undermined these amendments by implementing literacy tests, and poll taxes to keep Blacks from voting.

    Lyndsay Piccininni-
    Zeitgeist: The 14th Amendment in the Constitution was one of the amendments passed during Reconstruction. It ensures the rights of life, liberty and property and provides equal protection under the law to all persons. It also states that all persons born in the United States are citizens and therefore cannot be denied the rights of citizens.
    African Americans:
    -The 14th Amendment reversed the earlier ruling in the Dred Scott v. Sanford court case which ruled that African Americans could not become citizens or enjoy the privileges of citizenship. Whites however, deemed their treatment of blacks fair under the 14th amendment because they gave them the rights of citizens although they were not actually equal.

    -Even after the passage of the 14th Amendment, Blacks were not granted the right to vote. When the 15th amendment clearly gave them the right to vote, White Southerners undermined these amendments by implementing literacy tests, and poll taxes to keep Blacks from voting.
    -Groups such as the Ku Klux Klan formed which was an organization that used violence tand terrorism to oppress African Americans, especially in the South.
    Nativism & Immigrats:
    -Nativists opposed new immigrants who they thought would outvote them and take jobs from them by working for cheaper. They interpreted the 14th amendment so that these immigrants were not citizens under the constitution and therefore do not have to be granted the rights of citizens. They created the Know-Nothing Party which fought for restrictions on immigration and stricter dealings with aliens.
    -Plyler v. Doe was an important court case which the Supreme Court dealing with this issue when the state of Texas tried to withhold funding of schools in which illegal aliens were admitted and allowed them to be denied access to some schools. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the immigrants that this was in fact a violation of the 14th amendment and was discriminatory based on a characteristic that a child has no control over

    New major spending programs that addressed education, medical care, urban problems, and transportation were launched during this period. Resembling Roosevelt's New Deal in many ways.

    I. Since the beginning of America’s government, the amount of power allotted to the federal branch of government has been a topic of debate. War time led to the executive branch suspending certain constitutional rights. And economic depressions led to an increase in government intervention in business which some consider to be similar to socialism. The ambiguity of federal boundaries in government has caused a lot of controversy throughout history.
    II. Lincoln and the Civil War
    - Before Civil War, the proslavery Dred Scott decision was argued as being unconstitutional.
    - Weather or not a state was allowed to secede from the union and if the federal government was able to intervene was an issue that Lincoln had to decide.
    - Slavery, some considered, was a right guaranteed by the constitution. Federal government was infringing on basic rights by attempting to abolish slavery.
    - During the war, Lincoln instituted a draft.
    - Also suspended habeas corpus
    III. FDR and the Great Depression
    - Hoover had not supported many public works programs because he believed it was against democratic principles.
    - FDR elected and immediately established programs such as the CCC to put people to work to try and alleviate the severity of the Great Depression.
    - Many of his programs, however, were declared unconstitutional. Many believed them to be socialist.
    - His infamous court packing scheme, many believed FDR yielded too much power.
    - He served three terms, after, however, a constitutional amendment was past that a president may only serve two terms.
    - Although FDR is credited with ending the Great Depression, he did expand the powers of the federal government immensely.
    IV. LBJ and the Great Society
    - Increased many New Deal programs, including adding medicare/medicade and expanding social security.
    - Did a lot to combat poverty, however, many believed Johnson, like Roosevelt, was interfering too much and the federal government should not have that much power.

    KOREMATSU V. UNITED STATES (1944)
    Prejudice against immigrants from Asia had been longstanding on the West Coast when World War II broke out following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
    This prejudice action against the people of Japanese decent broke the 4th through 9th Amendments of the Constitution
    Another Violation is the more recent Patriot Act
    Among its many provisions, the act increased the ability of law enforcement agencies to search telephone and email communications and medical, financial, and other records;
    This breaks several rights granted through the amendments and demonstrates the government overstepping their provisional boundaries.

    - When the Japanese began to threaten Southeast Asia, Roosevelt froze Japanese assets in the U.S. banks, resulting in a cutoff of Japanese oil supplies.
    -Roosevelt displayed limitations in his handling of foreign policy. In the 1930's he was slow to warn against the menace of fascism, and during the war he relied too heavily on his charm and personality in the conduct of diplomacy.
