Racism in America–Part Two 8

racism head in holeIs there still racism in America?

In this series we will mainly focus on racism towards blacks because this is the main issue currently in America.

Racism Towards Blacks
Yes there is still racism in America and in every country in the world. As long as there is human beings there is going to be racism regardless of education, awareness, prayer, or any other means to stop racism. Why? Because this world is made up of sinful human beings who have biases and prejudices and many refuse to see the errors of their ways. In America we have seen even those who claim to be Christians can be racist (that is a whole other topic). Continue reading “Racism in America–Part Two” »

The Solution-Part One

This is a series on Racism in America and the Solution. It is specifically in regards to the racism of whites towards blacks and blacks towards whites.

The Impeachment of a President-Part One
What does the Constitution say about Impeachment?

Article I, Sections 2 and 3 of the U.S. Constitution lay the groundwork
for the impeachment process. The House of Representatives can indict the
president on impeachable offenses with a majority vote from the
members. Once indicted, the president must be tried by the Senate. With
the chief justice of the Supreme Court presiding over the hearing, a
two-thirds majority vote from the Senate can remove the president from
office after the trial has been conducted.

The Constitution, Article I, Section 2
The House of Representatives shall chose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.
