"The Mann Act is rooted in racial panic, they seek to solve the wrong problem." - Hallie Lieberman of the Washington Post
Is the Mann Act used as a weapon to punish unwanted behaviors, but are lawful. A heavy weight champion called Jack Johnson married a Caucasian woman, and was charged with the Mann act twice, because of racist allegations. There have been many more people charged for the same type of racist motives, like Chuck Berry, Malachi York, William I. Thomas, Frank Lloyd Wright, George Barker, and Charlie Chaplin. In 1914 a lady at that time tried to scheme, and black mail her lover by accusing him of violating the Mann Act, because he was married, and on the verge of divorce. The New York Times consider this law as the Black Mail Act. The Mann Act also known as the White Slave Traffic Act of 1910 is a federal law that criminalizes the transportation of any female for the purpose of sex work or for a purpose that is considered immoral. In the case of Caminetti v. United States in 1917; this law was used because the couple in the investigation was married, and the husband as well as his married friend had intercourse with some other women. The two California residents were tried, and found guilty. The United States Supreme Court replied that fornication, even when approved by both parties involved, is considered immoral according to their standards of law. If the woman gave permission for the immoral behaviors; it is a possibility that she could be charged with a crime as well. The Mann Act law was not well known, but it was common for unethical sexual behaviors, and so federal prosecutors could use this law on anyone that they felt threatened by. But the Amendment of 1978 States," any sexual activity for which any person can be charged with a criminal offense." On the day of July 21, 1931, a known starlet called Louise Rolfe McGurn was charged, and sentenced for violating the Mann Act. The couple involved claimed they were married while traveling to Florida, but they were not officially. Jack McGurn was transported to serve time at the federal prison at Leavenworth, Kansas Was the Mann Act chosen to protect or destroy American lives? Is the Mann Act inhumane, and unconstitutional?
