Has U.S. ignored the 1866 Civil Rights Act? Is U.S. in violation of U.S. Constitution?
Has the U.S. Government allowed other Foreign Newcomers to ‘Hi-Jack’ Black Americans Civil Rights Act of 1866? Is this a violation of U.S. Constitution
Let’s see some interesting points about the Civil Rights Act of 1866!
On April 6, 1866, the Senate voted 33-15 to override Johnson’s veto. The House followed suit on April 9, 1866, by a vote of 122-41, with 21 members not voting. As a result, the Civil Rights Act of 1866 became law.
The Civil Rights Act of 1866 is notable for being the nation’s first civil rights law. The act established that all male persons born in the United States, regardless of race, color, or “previous condition of SLAVERY or INVOLUNTARY SERVITUDE,” were entitled to basic rights of citizenship “in every state and territory in the United States.” The law further declared that all such individuals were entitled to the following specific rights:
- “to make and enforce contracts”
- “to sue, be parties, and give evidence” in court
- “to inherit, purchase, lease, sell, hold, and convey real and personal property”
- “to full and equal benefit of all laws and proceedings for the security of person and property, as is enjoyed by white citizens, and shall be subject to like punishment, pains, and penalties, and to none other”
The law also provided for the conviction and punishment of individuals who violated the law. https://ballotpedia.org/Civil_Rights_Act_of_1866
NOW IS THERE ANY MENTION OF OTHER FOREIGN NEWCOMERS, SUCH AS MUSLIMS, HISPANICS, CHINESE, OR ANY OTHER COUNTRY AS WELL AS LGBTQ? WE SEEM TO HAVE A HUGE PROBLEM AMERICA. BLACK AMERICANS HAVE BEEN FOOLED AND DUMB DOWN ABOUT THE REAL TRUTH…
The Civil Rights of 1866 did not address political rights, which include the right to vote and the right to hold public office. The Fifteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution, ratified in February 1870, guaranteed to all United States citizens the right to vote regardless of “race, color, or previous condition of servitude.” Even so, according to the National Constitution Center, the Fifteenth Amendment “had little impact for almost a century because states imposed poll taxes, literacy tests, and other restrictions that kept African Americans from voting.” Subsequent legislative actions in the 20th century, including the Civil Rights Act of 1864 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, were taken to address this problem
