Question and answer
What legislation meant to constrain race within prejudicial boundaries was enacted? How did the various groups you researched fight this legislation?
Hate crimes are based, at least in part, on the defendant's belief regarding a particular status of the victim. [ Hate-crime statutes were first passed by legislatures in the late 1980s and early 1990s in response to studies that indicated an increase in crimes motivated by prejudice. Approximately 30 states and the federal government have some form of hate-crime statute. Many localities have
also enacted their own hate-crime ordinances. The precise definition of hate crime varies from state to state. Some states define a hate crime as any crime based on a belief regarding the victim's race, religion, color, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, or ancestry. Some states exclude crimes based on a belief regarding the victim's sexual orientation. Others limit their definition to certain crimes such as harassment, assault, and damage to property. In all states, the victim's actual status is irrelevant. For example, if a victim is attacked by someone who believes that the victim is gay, the attack is a hate crime whether or not the victim is actually gay. ]

User: • What legislation meant to alleviate prejudicial boundaries has been enacted? How did the various groups you researched promote this legislation?

Weegy: Legislation (or "statutory law") is law which has been promulgated (or "enacted") by a legislature or other governing body, or the process of making it. [ It can have many purposes: to regulate, to authorize, to proscribe, to provide (funds), to sanction, to grant, to declare or to restrict. Legislation is usually proposed by a member of the legislature (e.g. a member of Congress or Parliament), or by the executive, whereupon it is debated by members of the legislature and is often amended before passage. Most large legislatures enact only a small fraction of the bills proposed in a given session.Whether a given bill will be proposed and enter into force is generally a matter of the legislative priorities of government. ]

User: how the research on happiness and wealth relates to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

Weegy: Maslow proposed that there are five levels of needs, the pyramid often used to explain his concept is to show that you must progress through the basic primary needs before you can reach the top, [ [ which leads ultimately to self actualisation. The needs are the following; 1. Physiological needs; such as water and food and air to breathe. It goes without saying one cannot occupy oneself with thoughts of purpose or desire when survivability is dire. 2. Security needs; this is maintenance of stage one. So protection is key here. This exemplifies itself in the form of shelter from the environment, the same reason we have bank accounts and locks on our front doors. And if you were an American citizen, a .44 magnum tucked away in a box in the bedroom closet. As this world runs on money and the phrase 'there's no such thing as a free lunch' becomes increasingly relevant to our current poor economic climate, it is important one has a reliable source of income, so the security of a full time job. 3.Social needs; a need to belong, and for companionship. Many go through depression in their teenage years because the feelings of not fitting in can be acute and overwhelming. These needs can be fulfilled through joining clubs or just in the company of good friends. Sometimes good friends are hard to come by, but with the internet at our fingertips the increased used of dating sites and forum inputs such as sites like yahoo ans show our need to interact, 4. Esteem needs; Once the bare necessities have been addressed we humans as apparently social creatures have needs that address our self worth. That feed our ego. We form friendships and relationships with the people that make us feel good about ourselves. Its a selfish form of self enhancement. I for one cast a wary eye on this supposed need for I believe seeking self worth through other's means a negligence of ones own opinion. However, regardless it is apparent we all desire to be valued in another person's eyes. We all desire confirmation of the good we see in ourselves or the dispelling of our darkest thoughts. ] savemoretaxes.com/.../maslows-hierarchy-o... ]
