• In this case Deloitte & Touche Consulting Group was tasked to come in and consult with SKS Manufacturing, an auto supplier, in order to fix their inventory problems along with other issues the company was facing. Maria Chen would lead part of the team for her first time on this 12-week engagement, but would in occur some difficulties throughout the first 6 weeks of the project. The Deloitte team has a lot of work to do before the end of the engagement in order stabilize the company and prepare them for a more radical long term project that plans to “reengineer” their business process. Most of the responsibility for the slow start on the project is resting on Chen’s shoulders due to the choices she has made during the first half
Before the Union victory in 1865, Congress assembled for the challenges the United States would face at the war’s end, particularly the integration of four million emancipated African Americans into the country. The Congressional Reconstruction period generated the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth amendments into the United States Constitution. These amendments extended legal and civil protections to former slaves. These three amendments were foundation of the civil rights movement; because it gave new constitutional protections to African Americans, though the struggle to fully achieve equality would continue into the future, it led the civil rights movement on to the right path.
After the end of the Civil War, the state of Georgia believed they deserved 35 million acres of land, so they claimed those 35 million acres of land from the Yazoo river which belong to the Native Americans. So basically, the land was kind of stolen. In the year 1795, the state legislator for Georgia sold those 35 million acre of state land to 4 private land companies for the price of 1.5 cent per acre. In 1796, a new legislator for Georgia found out that the previous legislators of Georgia who voted to sell parcels of the 35 million acres of land were stockholders in the companies that sold the land. The legislator also discovered that they were bribed in helping to re-sell the land for a higher amount while committing fraud and corruption.
For the longest time there were a lot of different views on African Americans and their place in the world. They were looked down upon and failed to be treated as citizens, but treated as animals. Three different court cases largely effected the civil rights movement by bringing together our schools, slowly desegregating our lives and improving equality of everyone: Plessy vs. Ferguson, Swann vs. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education, and University of California vs. Bakke.
The Plessy v. Ferguson case set an important precedent in the history of the united states. While the conclusion of the case itself remains that all public facilities are to remain segregated it gave way, as a trigger for many important developments we have today to occur. Not only did the case set a precedent for future cases, but it also legitimized the principles of Jim Crow. By legitimizing a principle of thought and social standard through politics, the principle now becomes even more arrogant as it is enforceable by further statutes and legislature and makes even more difficult for the issue to be amended. Though further decisions were made to advance the society of the United States, the mentality of our society was not corrected but
Segregation violates the Equal Protection Clause because according to the 14th Amendment “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States”. States do not have the power to segregate communities, or individuals because of their color which is why cases like Brown v. Board of Education, Plessy v. Ferguson, and many more went to the United States Supreme Court. Brown v. Board of Education and Plessy v. Ferguson cases are relatable because they were both deprived of their 14th Amendment rights. With Brown v. Board of Education, there was racial discrimination in the public education system. With Plessy v. Ferguson, Louisiana created their own law which made it so that white
Since the founding of the United States, there has been many supreme court cases that impacted America. Cases like Brown V Board of Ed., and Plessy V Ferguson. On May 17, 1954, Brown V board of education was a supreme Court case in which the Court declared that laws separating public schools for black and white students were unconstitutional. In 1890, Homer Plessy was arrested and tried for violating louisiana law ‘separate but equal’ by sitting in an all white railroad car, which led to the Plessy V Ferguson case.
In 1890 the Louisiana General Assembly passed legislation that decreed separate but equal “accommodations” for individuals including white, black, and mulatto’s. The General Assembly deemed this law to be reasonable with the intentions of restoring peace and order to their state; noncompliance with this edict included hefty fines, imprisonment, or both.
Plessy V. Ferguson was a court case that took place in 1896 in New Orleans. This case was held due to an incident in which African American train passenger Homer Plessy refused to sit in a Jim Crow Car where at the time in Louisiana, all colored people had to by law, which required separation of both whites and colored people. This action resulted in Plessy’s arrest in 1890. Even though Plessy argued that this violated his constitutional rights, the court ruled that a state law that “states merely a legal distinction “between those that are white and colored did not conflict with the 13th and 14th amendments. Restrictive legislation bases on race continued following the Plessy decision, its reasoning was not overturned until Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka in 1954.
In 1892, the Plessy v. Ferguson case had emerged from a conflict from Louisiana’s Separate Car Act. The law required that railroads have “separate but equal accommodations,” prohibiting African American and White passengers from entering besides the one they were assigned to based on race. Homer Plessy, a seven-eighths White and one-eighth African American bought a rail travel ticket in Louisiana for the White car and took a seat. He was later told to move to the African American car, after refusing to move he was arrested and charged for not complying with the Separate Car Act.
Prior to the 1960s Civil Rights Acts, it was an unfortunate matter to be a black U.S. citizen living in the South. They were not allowed to vote nor were they free to sit on the front-row seats of a state bus. On the other hand, these liberties were given to the white community, forcing an inequality gap between the two races. This gap eventually led the two racial groups to be separated at every possible public location, such as schools, restaurants, and beaches. Such an act was enforced by the Jim Crow Laws and supported by the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson case, which the Supreme Court stated their “separate but equal” doctrine. The Ku Klux Klan and white community also made it their duty to enforce the laws; at the same time, they conducted
From its early beginnings till present day, race and race matters (West, 1994) have been and continue to be a powerful variable in this country. Interestingly, one venue where race issues have been addressed and fought over has been this country’s judicial system. In fact, for close to two hundred years, it could be argued that the courts facilitated and sustained the marginalization of non-whites in this country. Two prominent 19th century court cases that set the foundation for said marginalization were the Dred Scott v Sandford and Plessy v Ferguson cases, both highlighting this country’s de jure segregation laws. Indeed, sociologist Joe Feagin, in his influential book, Racist America, writes, “Every part of the life cycle, and most aspects of one’s life, are shaped by the racism that is integral to the foundation and continuing operation of the United States” (2014, p. x). In other words, living in this country means that you are racialize, because it has been the lifeblood of this country.
I believe that it´s the same offender in the Parkinson case and the Johnson case, which is making the offender a serial killer because he has killed 3 people and it has been over a period over 30 days. By looking at different serial killer typologies my firm belief is that this offender will fall into the lust serial killer typology. I concluded this by firstly looking if the crimes were act-focused kills or process kills, I concluded it was process kills because the offender had taken the time to abduct both Parkinson and Johnson and didn 't just kill them right away like an act-focused killer would do. With the offender being a process killer he could only be organized as well because process killers cannot be disorganized. The offender would either be a lust killer, power-control killer or a thrill killer. I concluded that the offender in this case would not be a thrill serial killer, since this kind of murderer gets off my seeing his victims suffering, which is the most important factor for this type of offender. In the Parkinson and Johnson murders there were no signs of torture on the victims bodies and therefore I do not believe that this offender would be a thrill serial killer.
