@ Tornado: I intended to type this last night when the power went out, but here I go anyways--The Constitution does allow for basic protection under law for all people, but it is from that standpoint sort of filled with some loopholes. You have to remember when it was written and ratified in the 1790s, black people were often considered property because of slavery/paid servitude laws, the latter said that they'd only gain full citizenship after being a paid servant after 7 years, and women were often treated little better. Thankfully, things have changed, but we're still dealing with a document written by people, who as MysticsOcean said, couldn't have possibly foreseen this stuff.
@ MysticsOcean: I noticed that you're new here, and the fact that you turned up her as one of the first places that you visited to me speaks highly of your convictions. I might if I get time send you a PM later, as I have a night of catching up with stuff to do with my internet being messed up most of the past 24 hours. But I promise you that I'll try and get in touch with you soon.
Back on subject, I think that the press worldwide sucks, but there's a demand for it, even if it's only a small number of people who actively fuel it. I can tell you more in that PM how I feel, but it should be pretty obvious my disdain for them. And having the conviction that my grandfathers didn't enlist in WWII and that many others have fought and even died to protect this would probably make them turn in their graves, as well as the founding fathers.
