Why was the KKK formed

QUESTION POSTED AT 15/01/2020 - 03:04 AM

Answered by admin AT 15/01/2020 - 03:04 AM

It was established by anti modernists. They believed that things were better in "the good old days" before the Civil War, and not only in regard to Blacks, they also felt that a woman's place was in the home, for example.

The KKK actually came about in the 1800s, but the group as we know it was revived after the movie "The Birth of a Nation."

Which statement best describes the events of february 4, 1861? delegates in south carolina met to vote on whether or not to secede from the union. citizens went to the polls to vote for lincoln, douglas, breckinridge, or bell for the presidency. confederate troops fired on fort sumter and forced union soldiers to surrender. delegates from several southern states met to form a new confederate government.

On February 4, 1861, delegates from several Southern states met to form a new confederate government.

In the presidential elections of 1860, the Republicans, led by Abraham Lincoln, supported the prohibition of slavery in all the territories of the United States. The Southern states saw this as a violation of their constitutional rights and as the first step in a grand republican plan to finally abolish slavery. The three candidates in favor of the Union received an overwhelming majority of 82% of the votes at the national level. The Republican Party, dominant in the North, secured a plurality of popular votes and a majority of the electoral votes nationwide, so Lincoln was elected president constitutionally. He was the first candidate of the Republican Party to win the presidency. However, before his inauguration, seven slave states with cotton-based economies (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Texas) declared secession and formed the Confederation on February 4, 1861.

1. Define and explain the meaning of the ff. Word. A. Social behavior B. Cultural behavior C. Phenomena D. Taboo 2. Why is the norm of dicency and convientionality are the most adherend norms on society? 3. Explain "Deviant" is also seen as form of power struggle. Plz help me my assignment..

This sounds like sociology.... I took that as a college class my last semester this year!! So I may can help you some.
Social Behavior- Language, Mannerisms, Communication, the way you behave socially to communicate with your surroundings.
Cultural Behavior- Fashion, Slang, Dance, Music, behavior according to cultural influences
Phenomena - ( this one right here I might not be so accurate, but I will help you with what I know) Wildly different, confusing to pinpoint.
Taboo- something that is different from the norm, not commonly seen.
Theoretically, decency and conventionally are the most adhered norms of society because they aren't challenging or conflictive, they make it easy to get along and feel at ease with your surroundings. Just do what everyone expects you to do!!
Deviant may be referred to as a power struggle because if someone is deviant, they are not following the norms society has set into place, they are doing something different or atleast trying, this sounds like a power struggle because this person is now struggling with the power society has initially set to have over them. Resistance can be a struggle!!

A ____ is a form of government in which the leader is not a monarch and certain citizens have the right to vote. a. polis c. dictatorship b. republic d. Circus Maximus

Answer:  b. republic

Further detail:

A republic differs from a democracy in that when a government is fully a democracy, that means voting and participation in government by all citizens.  A republic may limit voting and political rights to certain types of citizens.  Many republics in history, for instance, have limited voting rights to those who owned a certain amount of property.  Britain was like that for a long time, and the United States started out that way as well.

We think of the United States today as a democratic republic, because voting rights are granted to all citizens age 18 or older, but voters elect representatives who serve in the government of the republic on their behalf.

A line passes through (1, –5) and (–3, 7).Write an equation for the line in point-slope form. Rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form.

Answer:

part 1) The equation of the line in point slope form is y+5=-3(x-1)

Part 2) The equation in slope intercept form is y=-3x-2

Explanation:

Part 1) Write an equation for the line in point-slope form

we have the points

(1, –5) and (–3, 7)

Find the slope

The formula to calculate the slope between two points is equal to

m=\frac{y2-y1}{x2-x1}

substitute the values

m=\frac{7+5}{-3-1}

m=\frac{12}{-4}

m=-3

Find the equation of the line into point slope form

y-y1=m(x-x1)

we have

m=-3

point\ (1,-5)

substitute

y+5=-3(x-1) ----> equation of the line in point slope form

Part 2) Rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form.

y=mx+b

we have

y+5=-3(x-1)

Convert to slope intercept form

Isolate the variable y

Distribute right side

y+5=-3x+3

Subtract 5 both sides

y=-3x+3-5

y=-3x-2
