Why did presidents Roosevelt, Taft, and Wilson do little to improve race relations during their presidencies?

QUESTION POSTED AT 10/10/2019 - 09:39 AM

Answered by answersmine AT 10/10/2019 - 09:39 AM

Almost no President from Andrew Johnson to John F. Kennedy did anything to improve race relations, because blacks were often prevented from voting (especially in the South) and the Federal Government Politicians were more interested in appealing to white male voters than to nonvoting blacks. It took LBJ and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. to finally get around to passing major civil rights laws in the 1960s. There were a few civil rights laws passed between 1866 and 1965, but, those laws were few and far between.

Read Abraham Lincoln's Letter to fellow Republican James T. Hale. In this letter, President Lincoln suggests a compromise with the South’s demands to keep the Union from falling apart. Confidential. Hon. J. T. Hale Springfield, Ill. Jan'y. 11th 1861. My dear Sir—Yours of the 6th is received. I answer it only because I fear you would misconstrue my silence. What is our present condition? We have just carried an election on principles fairly stated to the people. Now we are told in advance, the government shall be broken up, unless we surrender to those we have beaten, before we take the offices. In this they are either attempting to play upon us, or they are in dead earnest. Either way, if we surrender, it is the end of us, and of the government. They will repeat the experiment upon us ad libitum. A year will not pass, till we shall have to take Cuba as a condition upon which they will stay in the Union. They now have the Constitution, under which we have lived over seventy years, and acts of Congress of their own framing, with no prospect of their being changed; and they can never have a more shallow pretext for breaking up the government, or extorting a compromise, than now. There is, in my judgment, but one compromise which would really settle the slavery question, and that would be a prohibition against acquiring any more territory. Yours very truly, A. LINCOLN. Which words best describe Abraham Lincoln's tone in the letter?

I would say that Lincoln is indignant in his tone and considering the date in 1861 it apparently was just before the civil war took place (1861-1865) so he is basically saying that he will not budge on his opposition to the South's gaining more political power or territory.

Calhoun and Henry Clay Thomas MacDonough John Marshall Oliver Hazard Perry Francis Scott Key Napoleon James Madison William Marbury Lewis and Clark Albert Gallatin Monroe and Livingston Andrew Jackson

1. Won the Battle of Lake Erie - Oliver Hazard Perry

On Sept.10, 1813, Perry earned the title "Hero of Lake Erie" after leading American forces and having won a decisive naval battle in the Lake Erie, against British forces. The battle was one of the many fought during the War of 1812.

2. Won the Battle of Lake Champlain - Thomas MacDonough

On Sept. 11, 1814, MacDonough led a 14-ship fleet to Plattsburg, N.Y., which was being threatened by Britain ground forces. The U.S. won, forcing the 16-vessel squadron of Britain to surrender. New York and Vermont were saved from invasion.

3. War Hawks - John C. Calhoun and Henry Clay

The War Hawks consisted of young members of the Twelfth's U.S. Congress (1811-1813) who were against British influence among Native Americans and supported U.S.'s expansionism.

Clay of Kentucky, leader of Western War Hawks, called for war against England and suggested to invade Canada. Calhoun of South Carolina, leading the Southern War Hawks, saw Texas and Florida as possible targets for U.S.'s expansionism.

4. Witnessed the British bombardment of Fort McHenry - Francis Scott Key

During the War of 1812, Key witnessed the British bombardment of Fort McHenry in Maryland in 1814 and the triumphant American flag above the fort once the battle was over. Such event inspired him to write "Defence of Fort M'Henry", a poem that later on was adapted to the tune of the song "To Anacreon in Heaven". And after some modifications it became the official American anthem in the 1930s.

5. First to declare act of Congress unconstitutional - John Marshall

In the Marbury v. Madison case (1803), Justice Marshall became the first to declare an act of Congress unconstitutional. Congress had given the S. Court the power to issue an order granting William Marbury his commission. However, Marshall held that only the Constitution could do so, and it was the S. Court the accountable for judicial review, that is to say, the right to review acts of Congress and the President. If the Court found that a law was unconstitutional, it could overrule the law.

6. President Jefferson's Secretary of State - James Madison

Madison served as Jefferson's Secretary of State from 1801 to 1809. One of his remarkable achievements in this role was the supervision of the Louisiana Purchase, which doubled the nation's size.

7. Sold the Louisiana Territory to the United States - Napoleon

In 1803, the French leader Napoleon sold the Louisana Territory (approximately 827,000 square miles of land) to the U.S. for $15 million.

8. Explored the Louisiana Territory and points west - Lewis and Clark

In 1804, President Jefferson tasked Lewis with exploring lands west of the Mississippi River, a part of Louisiana Purchase. Clark was the co-leader for the mission. The excursion, an approximately 8,000-mile journey over two years, provided new geographic, ecological and social information about North America.

9. President Jefferson's Secretary of the Treasury - Albert Gallatin

Gallatin's mastery of public finance made him earn the position of Jefferson's Secretary of the Treasury in 1801 and continued under President James Madison until 1814.

10. A Federalist judge who wanted his commission granted - William Marbury

A few months before John Adam ended his term, he persuaded Congress to pass a new law, the Judiciary Act of 1801, which gave the court the power to appoint new federal judges. His intention was to fill the court with people who would oppose the policies of the incoming Republican administration, led by Thomas Jefferson. Adams accomplished to appoint some 39 new judges, however, three commissions couldn't be delivered to three new justices, for lack of time. One of the commissions was meant to Marbury. Therefore he presented himself in the Supreme Court demanding such commission.

11. Won the Battle of New Orleans - Andrew Jackson

On January 8, 1815, General Jackson led American forces to victory against the British army invasion, even though the latter outnumbered American.

12. Bought an empire instead of a city - Monroe and Livingston

On April 12, 1803, James Monroe joined Livingston in Paris as minister extraordinary, as Jefferson commanded. Their purpose in France was to negotiate the acquisition of New Orleans and all or part of the Florida, or just New Orleans, and if France didn't accept it eighter then, at least, they had to secure U.S. access to the Mississippi and the port.

However, at the time France was going through a critical economic situation and doubted Louisiana's worth. Monroe and Livingston immediately entered into negotiations and on April 30, the purchase of the Louisiana territory was agreed for $15 million, even though they had been allocated only $10 million.

The purchase of Louisiana territory doubled the size of the U.S., this way Monroe and Livingston had negotiated to buy an empire instead of a city.

Most prisoners at the Buchenwald Concentration Camp were Jewish. What evidence does the following excerpt from Angela Merkel's 2013 speech at Buchenwald provide to support the conclusion that Nazis pursued a policy of genocide toward Jews during World War II? At the beginning of our joint visit to the Buchenwald Memorial the American president and I stood in front of a plaque commemorating all the victims. When you put your hand on the memorial you can feel that it has warmed up — it is kept at a temperature of 37 degrees, the body temperature of a living human being. This, however, was not a place for living, but a place for dying. Unimaginable horror, shock — there are no words to adequately describe what we feel when we look at the suffering inflicted so cruelly upon so many people here and in other concentration and extermination camps under National Socialist terror. I bow my head before the victims. — German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Buchenwald Concentration Camp, 20131 A. Merkel suggests that the Buchenwald camp was built to inflict suffering. B. Merkel states that prisoners experienced "unimaginable horror." C. Merkel suggests that most of the prisoners died in the camps. D. Merkel states that the Nazi Socialist Party used "terror" against its prisoners.

The correct answer is C.

In her speech, the German chancellor Angela Merkel evidences the existence of the genocide perpetrated by the nazis, when she states that the camps (as she referred to Buchenwald and also other concentration and extermination camps) were not places for living, but places for dying.

The nazis used their camp system to systematically exterminate the Jewish population using gas chambers and crematories, and putting in practice what the nazis denominated Final Solution to the Jewish Question. Also political defectors and enemies, and other human groups that German nazis considered could contaminate the superior German Aryan race, were killed in the camps: disabled, gypsys, homosexuals, communists...
