A historical and cultural entity dispersed across a wide geographical area under the political domination and influence of ancient Rome, bringing to the conquered people the Roman civilization and culture from 753 B.C. to the beginning of the imperial rule under Augustus in 27 B.C. The early city built on seven hills grew to conquer Sicily, Sardinia, Carthage, Gaul, Spain, Britain, Greece, Asia Minor, etc., and extended ultimately from Mesopotamia to the Atlantic. Roman medicine was almost entirely in Greek hands, but Rome, with its superior water system, remains a model of sanitation and hygiene. (From A. Castiglioni, A History of Medicine, 2d ed pp196-99; from F. H. Garrison, An Introduction to the History of Medicine, 4th ed, pp107-120)

Building peace from scratch: some theoretical and technological aspects. (1/146)

A peace-building process is based on activity, acceptance, understanding of political reality, communication, and empowerment. Acceptance means accepting everybody as he or she is and let each know it. This is at the heart of peace work, it is the prerequisite for effective communication, and includes accepting other even in cases of severe disagreement. Peace work requires both an understanding of political reality and the expression of one's own political opinion. Acceptance and the expression of political opinion are not at variance but complementary. Combining acceptance and understanding of the political context provides hope for real communication in which messages are both sent and received, with appreciation and interest. Empowerment implies overcoming of the feeling of powerlessness, often present in conflict by all sides and in all social groups. It includes recovery of self-respect and respect for others. Education and economic independence are important facets of the empowerment concept. Essential principles of peace-building process are responsibility, solidarity, cooperation, and nonviolence. Responsibility encompasses caring for human rights, the suffering of others, and for consequences of our own intended and unintended actions. Solidarity allows learning through listening and understanding. Even with the best intentions on both sides, cooperation may be difficult and painful. Nonviolence is a way of life.  (+info)

Defending diversity: affirmative action and medical education. (2/146)

Affirmative action programs of all types are under attack legally and politically. Although medical schools have not been specifically targeted, their affirmative action programs, like others in higher education, are potentially in danger. This article examines the current legal status of affirmative action in medical education and concludes that a refurbished defense of such programs is essential if they are to survive impending judicial and political scrutiny. An analysis of existing case law and available evidence suggests that a carefully reinvigorated diversity argument is the tactic most likely to pass constitutional muster, as well as the justification most likely to blunt growing public and political opposition to admissions policies that take race and ethnicity into consideration.  (+info)

Ethical-legal problems of DNA databases in criminal investigation. (3/146)

Advances in DNA technology and the discovery of DNA polymorphisms have permitted the creation of DNA databases of individuals for the purpose of criminal investigation. Many ethical and legal problems arise in the preparation of a DNA database, and these problems are especially important when one analyses the legal regulations on the subject. In this paper three main groups of possibilities, three systems, are analysed in relation to databases. The first system is based on a general analysis of the population; the second one is based on the taking of samples for a particular list of crimes, and a third is based only on the specific analysis of each case. The advantages and disadvantages of each system are compared and controversial issues are then examined. We found the second system to be the best choice for Spain and other European countries with a similar tradition when we weighed the rights of an individual against the public's interest in the prosecution of a crime.  (+info)

Measuring our nation's diversity: developing a common language for data on race/ethnicity. (5/146)

During the 4-year period 1993 through 1997, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) undertook a comprehensive review of the statistical standards that are used throughout the federal government to gather and publish data on race and ethnicity. The primary objective of this review was to ensure that our standards provide a common language that reflects the increasing diversity of the US population and maintains our ability to monitor compliance with civil rights laws. The review culminated with the October 1997 issuance of OMB's "Standards for Maintaining, Collecting, and Presenting Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity." In this article, we describe key aspects of the process that was undertaken to review and revise the 1977 standards. We also attempt to dispel some myths and misunderstandings that have been associated with these standards.  (+info)

Use of the Americans with Disabilities Act by persons with rheumatic diseases and factors associated with use. (6/146)

OBJECTIVE: This study examined use of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) among persons with rheumatic diseases and assessed which factors were associated with use. METHODS: A mail survey was conducted among adult patients recruited from 21 rheumatology practices. Subjects answered questions about their inclination to use the ADA in the community or at work and about factors thought to be associated with use. The outcome was stage of behavior change, the behavior being use of the ADA. Ordinal logistic regression identified independent correlates of the outcome. RESULTS: Of 631 subjects, 47% experienced an ADA-resolvable barrier to community activity, and 63% of 183 employed subjects needed a job accommodation or experienced health discrimination. However, only 7% of the full sample and 10% of the employed subgroup had used the ADA. Factors associated with use were detailed knowledge, perception of being disabled, skill in requesting use, and health professional use suggestion. CONCLUSIONS: Although many persons with rheumatic diseases experience community barriers or need workplace accommodations, they currently underutilize the ADA. Use could be enhanced by health professional suggestion and referral or by community programs designed to address the factors identified.  (+info)

From the urban to the civic: the moral possibilities of the city. (7/146)

Relating bioethics to the philosophy of the city creates the possibility for developing the field along paths not yet explored. In the Western tradition, the city has been understood as the venue for two quite different forms of activity and two different types of moral possibility. In one guise, the city is an urbs, a center of commerce, market exchange, and social individualism. In another guise, the city is a civitas or polis, the space of active democratic citizenship, equality under law, and civic virtue. As civitas, classical philosophers regarded the city as the place of moral growth and full human self-realization. These two possibilities of human moral and political experience in the city have given rise to distinct traditions of political theory--liberalism and civic republican and democratic theory. This article traces these conceptual configurations into the domain of contemporary bioethics, arguing that most work in the field has drawn on the liberal tradition and hence has been insufficiently critical of the moral paradigm of market individualism and unduly inattentive to the values of civitas and the civic tradition. It argues for the creation of a form of civic bioethics and explores some of the theoretical foundations that type of bioethics would require.  (+info)

Full parity: steps toward treatment equity for mental and addictive disorders. (8/146)

The 1996 Mental Health Parity Act requiring equal annual and lifetime dollar limits for mental health benefits is to sunset 30 September 2001. This paper reviews the impact and limitations of both this law and existing state provisions and describes recent research on the actual and projected costs associated with such laws. We contend that full parity provided within the context of managed care not only is possible, but represents a "sequential" rather than a final step toward the broader goal of achieving equity in the treatment of persons with mental and addictive disorders.  (+info)

Robert Korstad, Civil Rights Unionism: Tobacco Workers and the Struggle for Democracy in the Mid-Twentieth South (University of North Carolina Press, 2003). Robert Korstads Civil Rights Unionism is a gripping and important account of the rise and fall of Local 22 of the Food, Tobacco, Agricultural, and Allied Workers of America-CIO between 1943 and 1950. Local 22 represented over 10 000 tobacco manufacturing workers at R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company and several independently-owned leaf processing plants in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Korstad argues that Local 22s predominately black membership transformed the union into a vehicle for civil rights activism linking the struggle for higher wages with political and social freedom. This labor-based civil rights movement could not withstand the Cold War conservative backlash and lost a decertification election in 1950. The demise of Local 22, according to Korstad, deprived the labor movement of a broad vision of social change and the civil rights ...
The U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division is the institution within the federal government responsible for enforcing federal statutes prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion, and national origin.

WASHINGTON - February 11, 2008 - National Education Association President Reg Weaver discussed the role of labor unions in the development of the civil rights movement in a speech today before government workers. Weaver delivered the keynote speech to approximately 350 attendees at the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Womens and Fair Practices Departments 2008 Civil Rights Luncheon. The labor movement has fought for fair wages, fair treatment in the workplace, and a fair chance to get ahead, said Weaver. The labor movement has been a force for fairness in every aspect of American life - including the civil rights movement.. In his speech, Weaver recalled the efforts of Black civil rights leader A. Philip Randolph to organize sleeping car porters on passenger trains. Randolph recognized that the labor movement represented the great masses of workers, and therefore has the moral responsibility for its commitment to the principle of civil rights. Randolph went on to ...

For decades, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has been the focus of federal inquiries into allegations of discrimination against minorities and women both in the programs it administers and in its workforce. In addition, USDA has been and continues to be involved in large civil rights lawsuits claiming discriminatory behavior on the part of USDA, including lawsuits brought by African-American, Native American, Hispanic, and women farmers. In 2002, Congress authorized the position of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights to, among other things, provide leadership to ensure USDAs compliance with all civil rights and related laws under all its programs.. In October 2008, we reported on management deficiencies in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights (OASCR), and included six recommendations. These recommendations call for plans to resolve discrimination complaints, ensure the quality of OASCR databases, and develop a department-level strategic plan for unifying USDA ...

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Georgia Davis Powers, a giant in the fight for civil rights in Kentucky and the first African-American woman elected to the state Senate, has died. She was 92..

Gerald Neal, a longtime friend and colleague who says Powers inspired him into public service.. She fought for fair housing and employment rights, became a close confidant of the Rev.

On February 10, 2011, the United States Department of Justice (Civil Rights Division, Special Litigation Section) released a letter of findings detailing the results of its investigation into the institutionalization of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Virginia. The investigation focused specifically on the Central Virginia Training Center (CVTC), an intermediate care facility for persons with developmental disabilities (ICF/DD), but also considered the statewide institutionalization of this population (DOJs involvement began as an investigation of CVTC pursuant to the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act but later expanded to include the statewide systems compliance with the ADA). The DOJ concluded that Virginia was systematically violating the Americans with Disabilities Act under the 1999 Supreme Court precedent, Olmstead v. LC, in forcing the unnecessary institutionalization of people with disabilities. The DOJ found a lack of sufficient ...
The racial ethic that has endured for centuries in America was made plain in the 1852 Supreme Court ruling Dred Scott v. Sandford, which determined that Black Americans were not American citizens and could not sue in federal court. This decision helped cement white supremacy in American legal and social life.. Following the Civil War, a Republican Congress seemed to make progress for American civil rights with the passage of the 13th amendment, which abolished slavery. Congress attempted to guarantee equal protection under the law for all Americans with the 14th amendment.. And Congress passed the 15th Amendment, which ruled that the right to vote shall not be denied on account of race.. Additionally, Congress passed two Civil Rights Acts in 1866 and 1875. These laws and amendments, passed during the period of Reconstruction, were intended to provide the full benefits of citizenship for African Americans.. But the legacy of Dred Scott endured.. In 1883, the Supreme Court struck down the Civil ...

Ever since the 1960s, the term civil rights has come to mean many things. It is now synonymous with campaigns both against police brutality and for affirmative action. After the successes of the civil rights movement in eradicating formal segregation in the mid-1960s, civil rights leaders have pushed for enforcement of laws against discrimination as well as advancement into the political and economic mainstream.
The Supreme Court under Chief Justice Earl Warren, a liberal Republican, issued Brown vs. Board of education in 1954, declaring legal segregation to be unconstitutional. It marked the culmination of a judicial movement that had been underway for a decade. It had the short-term effect of ending segregated schools in border states, and the long-term effect of ending legalized segregation in schools. Presidents Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy to a lesser degree, and Lyndon Johnson to a major degree became proactive in the Civil Rights movement. Johnson in particular built a coalition that included white churches, Jews, and labor unions, as well as many Republicans such as Everett Dirksen, to build a majority of the northern leadership in favor of action. The Democratic South filibustered but failed stop passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ended Jim Crow, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which guaranteed federal oversight of voting rights. In 1957, Governor Orville Faubus of ...
DETROIT Rosa Parks, a black seamstress whose refusal to relinquish her seat to a white man on a city bus in Montgomery, Ala., almost 50 years ago helped touch off the civil rights movement, died yesterday. She was 92.. Her death was confirmed late last night by Dennis Archer, the former mayor of Detroit. He served as Mrs. Parks guardian.. For her act of defiance in 1955, Mrs. Parks was arrested, convicted of violating the segregation laws, and fined $10, plus a $4 court fee. In response, blacks in Montgomery boycotted the buses for nearly 13 months while mounting a successful Supreme Court challenge to the Jim Crow law that enforced their second-class status on the public bus system.. The events that began on that bus in the winter of 1955 captivated the nation and transformed a 26-year-old preacher named Martin Luther King, Jr., into a major civil rights leader. It was Mr. King, the new pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, who was drafted to head the Montgomery Improvement ...
The national Democratic Party of 1948 was split between liberals who thought the federal government should guarantee civil rights for non-whites and southern conservatives who thought states should choose what civil rights their citizens would enjoy (the states rights position). At the 1948 Democratic National Convention, the party platform reflected this division and contained only platitudes in favor of civil rights. Though the incumbent President Harry S. Truman had already issued a detailed 10-point Civil Rights Program calling for aggressive federal action on the issue of civil rights, he gave his backing to the party establishments platform that was a replication of the 1944 Democratic National Convention plank on civil rights. A diverse coalition opposed this tepid platform, including anti-communist liberals Humphrey, Paul Douglas, and John Shelley. The three would later become known as leading progressives in the Democratic Party. These men proposed adding a minority plank to the ...

These iconic civil rights leaders have lost most of their friends. But their hope enduresMoses was instrumental in putting voting rights on the national agenda - by empowering ordinary people. He was a central organizer of Mississippi Freedom Summer, a project in which an interracial group of student volunteers was invited to come to the state and work alongside local organizers to register Black voters. He served as a field secretary for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. One of Mosess key insights is that ordinary people can become powerful agents of change. He was influenced by the organizer Ella Baker, who said, Strong people dont need strong leaders.

Organizations from both the civil rights and technology fields have found value in the Tables ability to foster learning and collaboration across areas of expertise. They appreciated how it helped them reinforce and amplify their messages, network with like-minded allies for advice and support, frame issues more broadly and precisely, gain access to data and research expertise, gain leverage in negotiations with decision makers, and discuss complicated issues in a private place.. Participating individuals found that the Tables value varied depending on their age and experience: Younger participants, and those with less experience in the civil rights arena, benefited from access to decision makers, while those who were more experienced appreciated being able to bring ideas back to their organizations that helped corroborate their ideas and positions..

The Rev. Fred L. Shuttlesworth, 89, one of the bravest and most dynamic leaders of the civil rights movement, who survived bombings, beatings and dozens of arrests in his efforts to end segregation in Birmingham, Ala., and throughout the South, died Oct. 5 at a Birmingham hospital.. His daughter Carolyn Shuttlesworth said the cause of death was not known. Rev. Shuttlesworth had been in poor health since having a stroke four years ago.. Rev. Shuttlesworth, a Baptist minister and co-founder of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, helped establish nonviolent resistance as a central tenet of the civil rights movement, often at great personal risk.. In the early 1960s, he and other protesters were attacked with truncheons, fire hoses and dogs unleashed by Birminghams public safety commissioner, Eugene Bull Connor. When the images of violence were shown on television and newspaper front pages, the horrors of segregation could no longer be ignored by the rest of the nation.. Rev. ...

Boston, MA - Today, President Trump extended the Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) program for Liberians for twelve months, through March 31, 2020. This decision comes hours ahead of an emergency hearing in federal court in a lawsuit filed by the national Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and Lawyers for Civil Rights calling for the administration to reverse its decision to terminate DED, a life-saving immigration program, for Liberian immigrants. The lawsuit, the first of its kind in the country, was filed on behalf of African Communities Together (ACT), the UndocuBlack Network, and over a dozen affected individuals, including Liberians raising U.S. citizen children. The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.. This is a major win for families and communities impacted by the administrations discriminatory decision to terminate a humanitarian relief program that provided a safe haven for thousands of Liberian immigrants who have been ...

The Health Care Case: The Supreme Courts Decision and its Implications - A new book on last years controversial Supreme Court decision on Obamacare is now available for pre-order at Amazon. The book is edited by Columbia law professors Nathaniel Persily, Gillian Metzger, and Trevor Morrison, and published by Oxford University Press. It contains essays on numerous aspects of the health care decision by a wide range of scholars, including VC-ers Jonathan Adler, Randy Barnett, and myself. There is also a large number of contributions by leading scholars on the other side of the issue, including Jack Balkin, Jamal Greene, Andrew Koppelman, Gillian Metzger, and Neil Siegel, among others. The Oxford University Press website has a complete table of contents here.. My own contribution to the volume addresses the Courts analysis of the Necessary and Proper Clause, and explains why the individual health insurance mandate was not proper even if it could be considered necessary. An earlier version of ...
The United States Supreme Court announced last week it will hear a second case on the constitutionality of affirmative action, this time concerning a ban in Michigan similar to one that already exists in California.. Affirmative action consists of policies that favor underrepresented groups based on factors such as race, color, sex or religion.. The outcome of the Michigan case, Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, could affect Californias universities if the Supreme Court decides states cannot enact affirmative action bans like Michigans Proposal 2, which prohibits the use of racial preferences in state university admissions.. Though it is unlikely, UCLA Law Professor Jonathan Varat said a Supreme Court ruling that declares all state affirmative action bans unconstitutional would be sweeping and shocking. Such a decision would make Californias voter-approved affirmative action ban, Proposition 209, unconstitutional, he said.. Schuette v. Coalition comes from the U.S. Court ...
Episcopal News Service] The U.S. Supreme Court ruled June 4 that the state of Colorado violated a bakers rights when its Civil Rights Commission said that he had to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.. Colorado courts had upheld the commissions finding that baker Jack Phillips refusal went against the states anti-discrimination laws. The U.S. Supreme Court disagreed because of the way the commission reached its conclusion.. The Civil Rights Commissions treatment of his case has some elements of a clear and impermissible hostility toward the sincere religious beliefs that motivated his objection, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the 7-2 majority. He said that comments by some of the commissioners were clearly hostile to Phillips and his claims.. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented, writing that those comments should not be taken as sufficient evidence that the commissions ruling was flawed. They noted that the commissions ruling had been upheld by other ...
On June 16, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a case involving a Virginia man who could legally purchase a firearm and did so for an uncle from Pennsylvania. Even though the Pennsylvania man who ultimately bought the gun was not legally prohibited from owning a firearm and passed a background check, the Court, in a 5-4 decision, said the transfer violated federal straw purchase law.. The ruling has resulted in confusion among federal firearm licensees (FFLs), particularly relating to gift purchases of firearms.. NSSF has asked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to provide clarification on the Supreme Courts decision for its firearms retailer members. As soon as ATF responds, NSSF will provide the information to all FFLs.. Meanwhile, it is our understanding that the Supreme Court ruling does not make it illegal for a consumer to purchase firearms as gifts. As expressly noted in the instructions on the Form 4473 for Section 11.a. Actual Transferee/Buyer: For purposes of this ...
The following contribution to our post-decision symposium on the health care cases is written by Erwin Chemerinsky. Erwin is the founding dean and distinguished professor of law at the University of California, Irvine School of Law, with a joint appointment in Political Science. His areas of expertise are constitutional law, federal practice, civil rights and civil liberties, and appellate litigation. He is the author of seven books, most recently, The Conservative Assault on the Constitution (October 2010, Simon & Schuster), and nearly 200 articles in top law reviews. Should we be surprised by the Supreme Courts decision to uphold the individual mandate and most of the Affordable Care Act? From the perspective of constitutional doctrine, the Supreme Courts decision follows from 75 years of unbroken precedents.. Since 1937, no major federal social welfare law has been declared unconstitutional as exceeding the scope of Congresss authority. From the late 19th century until 1936, the Supreme ...
Matt Hudson - Science - May 2, 2017: …A new study shows that computers can do a better job than legal scholars at predicting Supreme Court decisions, even with less information. Several other studies have guessed at justices behavior with algorithms. A 2011 project, for example, used the votes of any eight justices from 1953 to 2004 to predict the vote of the ninth in those same cases, with 83% accuracy. A 2004 paper tried seeing into the future, by using decisions from the nine justices whod been on the court since 1994 to predict the outcomes of cases in the 2002 term. That method had an accuracy of 75%. The new study draws on a much richer set of data to predict the behavior of any set of justices at any time. Researchers used the Supreme Court Database, which contains information on cases dating back to 1791, to build a general algorithm for predicting any justices vote at any time. They drew on 16 features of each vote, including the justice, the term, the issue, and the court of ...
Few courts have sufficiently defined what novel scientific evidence actually means. The reference to Websters Dictionary by the Illinois Supreme Court in Donaldson certainly did nothing to assist trial judges in determining what is novel, original or striking. Presumably, courts must initially determine whether the method or technique is generally accepted before they can answer whether it is novel in the first place. Such circular reasoning seems illogical and further establishes that the exception is more artificial than substantive. The recent state supreme court decisions summarized here also seem to demonstrate a trend toward diminishing or eviscerating the application of the Frye general acceptance standard by creating various exceptions. Whether it is the artificial pure opinion exception outlined in Kuhn and Logerquist, or the failure to even apply Frye as in Logerquist, these exceptions diminish the rigidity of the Frye standard and seem to create the arbitrary distinctions critics ...

In the 2003 Grutter v. Bollinger Supreme Court case, Justice Sandra Day OConnor stated that while institutions of higher education have a compelling interest in promoting diversity, affirmative action should ideally be unnecessary within 25 years. During that time, it adopted a socioeconomic-based affirmative action program and implemented the 10 percent rule, which did improve the universitys racial and ethnic diversity. [...] we should not forget what Justice Harry Blackmun wrote in the seminal 1978 Bakke case concerning affirmative action in higher education: In order to get beyond racism, we must first take account of race. The Supreme Court should not remove overnight the tools that universities use to create the diverse campuses that not only benefit their students, but aim to improve the nation as a whole.

The facts for this article, but not the legal conclusions, come from an article in in Flint, Michigan, on 16 August. It seems to be affiliated with a Michigan newspaper, but that could not be established on its website. It was reported on the site that the ACLU wrote a strong letter to the Flint Housing Authority objecting to drug tests for public housing residents. Then the site opened the subject up for public comments.. The Director of the Housing Authority said he would like to have a zero-tolerance policy on drugs, but there were no current plans to conduct any drug tests of residents. What is interesting here is the reactions from residents to the announced ACLU attack on the Authority.. They follow a common theme. If people choose to subsist on public benefits, then they should expect to follow the rules for conduct laid down by those public authorities.. From numero407: Greg Gibbs of the ACLU should drive through the Howard Estates in the evening. The only people who have a ...
On June 4, 2009, the district court held that after a rocky start, the Commonwealth, had made progress. The court noted that in 2003, the defendant had begun submitting quarterly reports outlining the status of operations at the Adult Correctional Facility, Immigration Detention, Juvenile Detention Unit, Rota Detention, and Tinian Detention. Coordination had been ongoing between the Commonwealth and the DOJ in the form of formal reports as well as frequent, informal exchanges of information between the parties. Substantial progress had been made by the Commonwealth including a collaborative, constructive relationship with the DOJ. Following the on-site visit to all of the governed facilities by counsel and retained experts on behalf of the DOJ, progress continued on the issues identified by the parties. The district court ordered the Commonwealth to provide information regarding their medical system to the DOJ for review to assess substantial compliance and the long-term sustainability of the ...

The Civil Rights Act of 1866, 14 Stat. 27-30, enacted April 9, 1866, was the first United States federal law to define US citizenship and affirmed that all citizens were equally protected by the law. It was mainly intended to protect the civil rights of African-Americans, in the wake of the American Civil War. This legislation was enacted by Congress in 1865 but vetoed by President Andrew Johnson. In April 1866 Congress again passed the bill. Although Johnson again vetoed it, a two-thirds majority in each house overcame the veto and the bill ostensibly became law ...

What is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)?. The SPLC touts itself as a nonprofit civil rights organization dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry by using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy. It was founded in 1971 in Montgomery, Alabama, as a civil rights litigation firm to fight the ongoing resistance to equal treatment for AfricanAmericans. The SPLCs main target early on was the Ku Klux Klan, which it successfully sued for financial damages for the victims of Klan violence. Despite its laudable origins, over time the SPLC has morphed into a bitterly partisan actor that tries to play the role of political referee while simultaneously engaging in progressive activism. It does this by using smear tactics, intimidation, ritualized defamation, and a knack for fundraising to silence its political opponents. As of October 2017, the SPLC has 302 employees, four state offices, and an endowment fund of more than $432.7 million.. Read more.... ...
The occurrence of AIDS led in every Western European country to exceptional innovations in prevention, patient care, health policy and questions of civil rights. This exception can be explained above all by the fact that not only was a health catastrophe feared but also civilizational harm in the field of civil rights. Despite national differences, this brought about similar exceptionalist alliances consisting of health professionals, social movements and those affected. With the failure of a catastrophe to arise, signs of fatigue in the exceptionalist alliance and increasing possibilities of medical treatment, exceptionalism in Europe is drawing to a close. Four phases are distinguished between in this process, given nationally different patterns of development: Approx. 1981-1985: emergence of exceptionalism. The reasons underlying exceptionalism are investigated. Approx. 1986-1991. consolidation and performance of exceptionalism. The investigation centers on the exceptionalist policy model. ...

4. Much of this debate is not really about civil rights, but a desire for approval. The fact that 70% of blacks supported Prop 8 shows they dont believe it is a civil rights issue. Gays in California already have their rights. What they desire is approval and validation from those who disagree with them, and they are willing to force it by law if necessary. Any disapproval is quickly labeled hate speech. Imagine if we held that standard in every other disagreement Americans have? There would be no free speech. Thats why, on the traditional marriage side, many saw Prop 8 as a free speech issue: Dont force me to validate a lifestyle I disagree with. It is not the same as marriage. And many saw the Teachers Union contribution of $3 million against Prop 8, as a effort to insure that children would be taught to approve what most parents disapprove of ...
All of these incidents are stark reminders of why we must speak out when hate, violence, and systemic racism claim - too often with impunity - Black Lives.. The LGBTQ Movements work has earned significant victories in expanding the civil rights of LGBTQ people. But what good are civil rights without the freedom to enjoy them?. Many of our organizations have made progress in adopting intersectionality as a core value and have committed to be more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. But this moment requires that we go further - that we make explicit commitments to embrace anti-racism and end white supremacy, not as necessary corollaries to our mission, but as integral to the objective of full equality for LGBTQ people.. We, the undersigned, recognize we cannot remain neutral, nor will awareness substitute for action. The LGBTQ community knows about the work of resisting police brutality and violence. We celebrate June as Pride Month, because it commemorates, in part, our resisting police ...
The first part of 20th century is distinguished in history as the strongest anti-Semitic period of all time and Romania makes no exception. Before the First World War, the Jewish issue was still unsolved. They had no elementary civil rights, despite the international pressure and the fact that they were born in Romania. In the war they could fight, they could die but they could not become officers.. More than that, in the World War II period, the fascist rulers introduced an abusive policy of anti-Semitism being strongly influenced by the German Nazis and frantically trying to purify the multicultural Romanian nation. Restrictive measures were taken and the Jews had lost all their rights. They were considered foreigners, could not work in any of the public institutions, their belongings became state property and were forbade to marry a Romanian. The lack of safety and civil rights led to outrageous actions against Jewry, including plundering, murdering and deportations.. The 40s stand out as ...

Listening to Jennie Wilson and her daughter, Alice Wilson, on what they went through while living in Kentucky, a pattern shows up. A pattern of actions that the white population took on the African Americans living there at the time appears. The white Americans had no problem being mean to the black community; anything and everything was okay. Through the stories told by Jennie Wilson and her daughter it is seen that these actions were repetitive and can be seen throughout history and throughout Kentucky.. Jennie tells of the third Monday of every month being a time of fear. On these Mondays, the whites in the community would get drunk and come around to where Jennie, her family, and other black families lived. They would come drunk and with guns prepared to kill those who they especially didnt like. Shootings and brutal acts against the black community occurred all over Kentucky. In Corbin county whites have a long history of blaming blacks for events that didnt happen and in Frankfort alone ...

The Supreme Court of Canada hears an appeal this week delving into an issue thats increasingly resonating with Canadians as the countrys population ages - the right to assisted suicide for the terminally ill.. On Wednesday, the countrys highest court will begin hearing an appeal by the B.C. Civil Liberties Association that could ultimately result in dying but mentally competent Canadians being granted the right to receive medical assistance to hasten death.. Its the latest challenge to the Criminal Code of Canadas provisions outlawing assisted suicide. Its roots stretch back to the 1993 Supreme Court decision that denied Sue Rodriguez the right to die.. The B.C. woman, suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), sought to end her own life, famously asking: Whose body is this? Who owns my life?. In a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court rejected her efforts to strike down the Criminal Code provisions, saying they werent in step with Canadian values.. But times have apparently changed in ...
Part of the function of our court system is to step in and protect the rights of minorities from the punitive impulses of the majority. Punting on the most salient civil rights issue of the day wont make the Court look reasonable; itll make it look cowardly. Most Americans believe that the role of the Supreme Court isnt to make law but to correctly interpret existing law within the scope of black-letter statutes and legal precedent. Most Americans also recognize that discrimination is wrong and separate but equal isnt really equal; they also expect the Supreme Court to be at the forefront of knocking down unjust laws, ahistorical as that view may be. Americans would not view dodging the national issue with a narrow ruling-only addressing federal benefits in the DOMA case, deciding petitioners dont have standing in the Prop 8 case-as a rational Judgment of Solomon; they would see it as a cop-out at best, and even a transgression against the Courts most fundamental and valuable ...

Now the EPA must act without delay.
  • The main aim of the successful civil rights movement and other social movements for civil rights included ensuring that the rights of all people were and are equally protected by the law. (
