Abstract
The following essay investigates the contradictions of the modern concepts linked to the U.S. Constitution and the actual ideologies of those who wrote it. While it may be viewed as a beacon of modern democracy today, it contains several contradictory and outright racist portions pertaining to Blacks. Although those contradictions and racist laws have been rectified, it is important that we remember they are still in there. If we cannot learn from the mistakes of those before us, we will more than likely make those same mistakes again.
