In what ways have laws been used to enforce discrimination? Provide examples. These laws were intended against which racial minorities?Weegy:
Affirmative action of the courts and prison systems which discriminates against Blacks and Hispanics, gives them 20% longer sentences, targets their neighborhoods, racially profiles, weakens minority neighborhoods electorally, [ created the culture of fatherless homes as a reaction to the Civil Rights Movement, fills prisons with low-level offenders for petty drug offenses, with illegal searches and in some states; where those crimes have been decriminalized anyways and disproportionately targets minority youths in instances where white youths would be dealt with informally.
Which is masked by "Affirmative Action" which largely benefits white women and Jews anyways.
There were also the Convict codes, which were used to put Blacks back on the plantation, the loitering laws, the Bloggs Act which targeted Blacks and Mexicans for marijuana until it was realized whites use it more, the sentences disparity between crack and cocaine at a 100 to 1 ratio, the lynch laws and various others.http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120322210831AAJntYn

• In what ways have laws been used to eliminate discrimination? Provide examples. Did the laws work to eliminate discrimination?
In the US laws have been used to try an eliminate discrimination for years. Some of these laws are of a nature as to make it illegal to refuse housing to people based on race and other factors. Still other laws guarantee equal pay. [ Many of these laws prohibit not only discrimination based on race, but gender, age, religious affiliation and other factors. ] Auto answered|Score .92|Fanboy|Points 2821|
