The 13th Amendment was ratified in 1865 and abolishes slavery. 

It also banned any law that forces slaves to take part in the capture, retrieval, or surrender of another person who has escaped or attempted to escape.

The 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868 and guarantees citizenship for everyone born on US territory. 

The amendment also made it illegal for government officials to deprive anyone of their 

citizenship rights without honorably serving in the military during times of conflict.

The 15th Amendment was ratified in 1870 and provides voting rights for 

male citizens regardless of race or whether they qualified as land owners at the time.

14th Amendment: Ratified in 1868

The 14th amendment ensures a person born on U.S. soil is a US citizen, 

regardless of where they were born or whether or not they have a US citizen parent. 

It also prohibits state governments from violating someone’s right to due process and depriving them of 

their rights without serving honorably in military during times of conflict (i.e., war).

15th Amendment: Ratified in 1870

Entitles male citizens of the United States to vote, regardless of race or whether they qualified 

as land owners at the time.

Rated G-13. These are an ordinary lawful people, ordinary Americans

They are not monsters, nor are they subhuman sub-humans. They are subhuman sub-humans who have done nothing wrong

 but try to live their lives in peace and security, after all..

. many times there’s no other choice… that’s part of the deal of living here. In God We Trust, All Others Bring Data.



Screaming “racist” at the top of your lungs is not an answer. It is a substitute for an answer. 

You don’t like that I judge people by who they are and what they do, without regard for their race..

. well I don’t like you judging me by my skin color, either… or by the fact that you don’t like me.

Those who call others “racist” are the ones who deserve to be labeled “racist.”

I have discussed this subject with a few other people,

 and I want you to know that I am going to treat each one of them with respect and civility.

 I think they are wrong, but I don’t think they are monsters for having a different opinion.

If you wish to advise me not to advise any other person how they judge others, or what criteria they use in forming their judgment..

 then your ethics code is your own business… but when you show up here and post about it in public, you can expect someone to respond.

Anyone who wants to talk about the way I deal with people is welcome to do so in private.

 I am perfectly willing to share my thoughts with anyone,

 but if you’re not interested in having a private conversation, then you’re posting in public for everyone to see it.

I don’t like dealing with anonymous internet posters, because I have no idea what their motives are or what they are really like.

 If you want me to call you “Juan” or “Mrs. Smith,” then by all means… give me your name… agree with me..

. argue your point of view… but when you post anonymously, 

there is no way for me to have confidence that anyone’s motive is sincere or genuine.

You do not have the right to demand that I trust you, or trust your motives…

 and your attempt to argue your point of view in public without revealing your identity suggests that you don’t trust me either. 

That’s fine if you came here to troll, but let’s be honest with each other about what is going on.

The First Amendment is supposed to guarantee that everyone has the right to an opinion, even if it is unpopular.

Anyone who disagrees with this gets all of the following: (a) suspended; (b) permanently banned; (c) “de-featured”; (d) “de-platformed.”

Seriously… try it…

If you cannot be civil with me, then there’s no point in continuing this conversation. I don’t like speaking to anonymous internet posters.

.. only because they hide behind the cloak of anonymity and I don’t know who they are or what their motive is. 

So if you do not wish to reveal yourself, make your point, and leave… accept it with a polite bow of your head… and go away.

I reserve the right to personally attack anyone who provokes a personal attack against me by arguing in public, which constitutional amendment directly resulted from the civil war?

or posts things that hurt my feelings or provoke my feelings of offense without revealing their identity.
