If anyone can show me where federal civil rights laws are supported in the Constitution, or that the men who wrote and adjudicated the Fifteenth Amendment were lying, that would be great.

Good place to start:
Article III
...In all the other cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make ...


SCOTUS determines the constitutionality of the law since John Marshall, if I recall correctly.

I usually leave that up to SCOTUS. Do you have a problem with that jurisprudence?

Only if an opinion is supported by the Constitution.

Judicial activism has become a complaint by conservatives who, in their own manner and perhaps more than progressives, introduce irrelevant intent and historically petrified thinking into major issues of social consequence while they (conservatives) pursue their own form of judicial activism in matters of firearm regulation, licentious campaign regulation, and protection of 19th century big business labor oppression. Values can be expressed by the lack of them.
