Protected Classes

March 31, 2015

The following is a list from the Federal Govt of protected classes

Federal protected classes include:

  • Race.
  • Color.
  • Religion or creed.
  • National origin or ancestry.
  • Sex.- by executive order by obama in 2009, and then by the supreme court in 2013 by declaring DOMA unconstitutional.
  • Age.
  • Physical or mental disability.
  • Veteran status.
  • Genetic information.
  • Citizenship.

Before protected classes were created, everybody had the same equal rights but the DEMOCRATS up until 1964 did everything under the sun to keep blacks from recognizing their full rights as an American Citizen. From laws such as separate but equal laws, whites only laws, the KKK, voting restrictions, owning property.

gays and lesbians and transgender can not compare marriage to civil rights

the following things can be done to get the same benefits that married couples have that are not civil rights

The Social Security Administration can change rules administratively to allow a partner to receive benefits the same as a married couple after the death of the spouse by changing spouse to partner….

Medical decisions – the Health and Human Services can declare partner if so designated by the other partner to make medical decisions on medical forms valid….

All Federal Agencies can change rules administratively so that court cases are not needed and having a minority impose its values upon the majority.

marriage was encouraged by the residents of each state and benefits were given to the married couples to encourage procreation.
