Now I am not a lawyer only an ole history/constitution teacher so any learned input of the legal profession would be welcome.
Time to clear this BS up!
The justice of the Civil rights issue in the US was between white and black Americans. Slavery was ended by the Civil war: 600.000 KIA, an million or more WIA and half the nation in smoking ruins. But thanks to a supreme court decision, we had segregation under the law.. NOTE I WROTE "UNDER THE LAW" until about the 1960's that was unjust and unconstitutional and changed. No law or court can make people love people but it can give equal justice under the law. Equal justice under the law means that we ALL follow the law that is constitutional and if we think it unconstitutional we get the law repealed or overruled. In their own community immigrant groups have long among themselves taken community problems to the Priest, the Rabbi, the Pastor or the Imam. But the LIMIT on that is: That the problem may not A: affect a person outside the community and B: The problem may not be a crime under the law of the land. Reading history and the constitution is a good thing.
