In the late 1800s white racism was very strong and did not only pertain to blacks. The "Anglo-Saxon" whites believed themselves to be a superior race and discriminated against the immigrants that were rapidly coming into the nation. They discriminated against people because of a slight difference in complexion. In modern times most don't even notice these differences in skin tone, but they did then. This expression is an example of racism.

Why is totalitarian often considered to be more efficient at making decisions then a democratic one?

In a totalitarian society one person is in charge. This person is called a dictator and there is no freedom of voting, expression, art, press, or personal decisions. Every thing in the society is controlled. In a democracy it is the opposite. People are allowed to vote, protest, create, and make decisions that are best for them.

Representatives are elected every years presidents every years and senators every years?

Representative seats are contested every two years. The Presidency is contested every four years. Senate seats are contested every six years, staggered out every two years (so 33 senators, then 33 two years later, then the last 34, then repeat)

Why is freedom of speech so important to a democratic society?

"Freedom of expression is the matrix, the indispensable condition, of nearly every other form of freedoms." Benjamin Cardozo was stating that freedom of expression is the structure of all the other freedoms. Freedom of expression is a very valuable freedom. It lets you express your own thoughts and feelings and show your beliefs and ideas. In Tinker vs. Des Moines, teenagers John Tinker, Mary Beth Tinker, and Christopher Echardt, decided to wear armbands to protest the Vietnam War. The principals of the Des Moines school district asked the students to take the armbands off. They refused to do so, and they were suspended from school. The students took this case all the way to the Supreme Court where they won 7-2 because the Supreme Court thought it was violating their freedom of expression. Freedom of expression is also showing your feelings without verbal use. If you don't know about this freedom, you might be afraid to share your ideas and feelings. Also, freedom of expression helps people make decisions based on their opinions and not what others think. Citizens also have the right to express who they want to vote for unless there is a rule or law limiting your freedom of expression. Freedom of expression is found in many early human rights documents such as the Magna Carta. In the Constitution, the First Amendment protects your freedom of expression.

What is the difference between a scotch and a whiskey?

There is NO difference. Scotch IS whisky. Scotch is a nickname for whisky made in Scotland. On every bottle of whisky made in Scotland the label says 'Scotch Whisky' rather than 'Scottish Whisky'. The word 'Scotch' simply means where the product is made i.e. Scotland. ----- Scotch is a tradename and must meet requirements for ingredients, distilling, aging and blending to be called "Scotch". Whiskey is more generic referring to any distilled drink made from grain mash, fermented and then distilled one, two or three times then stored in charred wooden barrels to "age" the whiskey and gain its brown color. In some cases the aging process is skipped as in the production of "moonshine", which techically could be called young unaged whiskey.
