[French, from Old French policie, civil organization, from Late Latin polītīa, from Latin, the State, from Greek polīteia, from polītēs, citizen, from polis, city.]
The Black Codes were laws passed on the state and local level in the United States to limit the civil rights and civil liberties of African Americans. Even though the United States constitution originally discriminated against African Americans (as "other persons") and both northern and southern states had passed discriminatory legislation since the early 19th century, the term Black Codes is used most often to refer to legislation passed by Southern states at the end of the Civil War to control the labor, movements and activities of newly freed slaves.
The Jim Crow laws were state and local laws in the United States enacted between 1876 and 1965. They mandated de jure racial segregation in all public facilities, with a supposedly "separate but equal" status for black Americans. In reality, this led to treatment and accommodations that were usually inferior to those provided for white Americans, systematizing a number of economic, educational and social disadvantages.
The far-reaching consequence of this act is that since 1866, it has been illegal to discriminate in housing based on race. However, federal solutions were not provided for, and remedies were left to the individuals involved. Because those being discriminated against had limited access to legal help, this left many victims of discrimination without recourse. Since the latter half of the 20th century, there have been an increasing number of remedies provided under this act, including the landmark Jones v. Mayer decision in 1968
Section 1 of the act (now codified at 42 U.S.C. § 1983, and called in this entry "section 1983"), provided that any person deprived of rights conferred by the Constitution by someone acting "under color" of law (i.e., a state or local official acting with legally granted authority, or, through purporting to act within such limits, an official may be misusing authority) or custom could bring suit in federal court and recover damages or equitable relief. Section 2 (now codified at 42 U.S.C. § 1985, and called in this entry "section 1985") of the act provided criminal sanctions and a civil damages action for conspiracy to commit a range of offenses. These offenses included attempting to overthrow the government, intimidating witnesses or parties to legal action, using threat or force to influence jurors, or going on the highway in disguise to deprive others of the exercise of constitutional rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments. The section is used less frequently than section 1, but is still a relevant and powerful piece of civil rights legislation.Logical Scenario
Congress has just passed sweeping legislation Civil Rights Act of 1866.
Grand Wizard has called the White House hot line to speak to our U.S. President.
Don't you dare enforce this new piece of legislation. These Nigerians will take over our country if you do!
We have to do something or Congress may charge my office with treason.
Tell you what to do. Just steer those Nigerians to the bar and we will charge those ignorant Nigerians legal fees to police their Civil Rights.
Should we steer Voting Rights Plaintiffs to the bar too?
Heck no! The League of Women Voters will be down your throat like white on rice.
U.S. Attorney General you're wanted in the Oval Office right away!
Close the door! Make sure all intercom systems have been turned off.
Yes Sir Mr. President. What is the urgency all about?
I need for you to address a memo to your staff to steer all Civil Rights Plaintiffs to the bar except for cases of police brutality or murder.
Grand Wizard has ordered his followers in Congress to legislate Black Codes and Jim Crow Laws.
Clandestine role of our United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) is to terrorize these Nigerians to boost higher traffic for criminal defense lawyers.
Sounds like a wonderful idea. By the way we have a Klan meeting this coming weekend don't forget your hood!
Gee thanks for reminding me!
Moral of my story is: You can fool some of the people some of the times and many of the people most of the time, but you can never fool God any of the time! Somebody is always watching you!
