Obadele Brown October 22, 2007 Law and Society We The People… The United States Constitution came into effect on September 17, 1787. It is the  supreme law of the United States of America. Congress knew with time that there would  be necessary changes in the Constitution, but did not want any little thing that stirs up  controversy to become a law. So they created Article V which states that three fourths  of the state must ratify a proposed amendment and there are checks in balances  between the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branch. Because of this long hard  process there have only been twenty seven Amendments since the constitution was put  into effect over two hundred years ago. If these twenty seven Amendments especially  Amendment XV were not essential to our country they would not have been changed.  Amendment XV states, “Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or  abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or  previous condition of servitude.
