M IDTERM EXAM Political Science 152 1. Describe the basic questions and positions in America's conception of political, social, and economic equality. Look at Constitution and Dec of Independence for general statements. Elimination of slavery, women’s vote, equal protection and due process clauses of Constitution, Civil Rights acts and cases, Citizens’ rights (Miranda decision, Bill of Rights, Voter Act). Be sure to define each realm of national life and the different levels of consensus on equality. Consensus on political and social rights, not so much on economic. Affirmative action, tiered tax rates “punish the “rich” (top 1% of incomes pay 50% of taxes, bottom 50% of taxpayers pay less than 5% of taxes. Are there any Supreme Court cases discussed in class that reflect American agreements and disagreements on questions of equality? See text(?) 2. Describe the rationale of "separate but equal." The rationale was that as long as blacks had the same rights and access to government benefits and facilities, it didn’t matter that they were separate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
