But women and slaves and those who could not afford poll taxes were kept in a second class for generations until The Constitution was amended. While it did not provide for a second class it did also did not provide for equality.

    Yes Waff, why do you keep throwing up old arguments that point out a problem that was at least fixed by amendment. I still argue the amendments weren't necessary but to delete sections that made slavery law in America but for some reason (more control gained) they went the convoluted route instead.

    Too bad Wilkie wasn't president instead of FDR, then maybe we wouldn't be in this mess.
