The reference was clearly to the Civil Rights Act of the 1960's, it had nothing to do with slavery.

As for women's suffrage, Republicans were the big champion of that. And it required amending the Constitution, not enacting legislation.

Confiscated the slaves, confiscated. & only in those states in rebellion against the Union @ that time - & so the border states (& any others) that had some slaves did not suffer for their steadfast attachment to the Union. The Emancipation Proclamation was only good in the states in rebellion.

(Congress did make good & pass the amendment to free all the slaves everywhere in US jurisdiction, after the Civil War. Although - was it MS that just recently got around to ratifying the critter?)

I pass on the rest, I'd have to look into the cases.

The founding fathers gave constitutional rights to add amendments. They saw to it that the Civil Rights Act was as constitutional as the War Powers Act.

Black people are not property. Only someone who was really twisted in ancient history would consider such a statement. You a born again evangelical per chance?
The measurement of debt is a percentage of GDP.

Neither the founding farhers nor the Constitution gave rights. They had nothing to do with civil rights acts.

Direct me to my statement referring to anyone as property.
