Was Andrew Jackson against minorities?
He was a man of his times. People who were not white were considered inferior. This included Native Americans, Asians, African Americans, Hispanic and women. The term "minority " is a modern concept, so yes he was against those who were inferior to white men.
Yes. He was a man of his time and African Americans, Native Americans, women, and other races were considered inferior.
He was a man of his time and saw the African American, Native Americans, women, and other races as inferior. So, yes he was along with the dominant society of the time.
This is a hard question to answer since Jackson was a man of his time. Slavery was still important and the Native Americans were being displaced due to western movement. Jackson was the first frontier president and a man of the people. He opposed the renewal of the charter of the Bank of the US because he saw it as an enemy of the common man and only for the rich. Yet, when GA ignored federal law and claimed millions of acres of Cherokee lands he did nothing. Even when the Supreme Court ruled that GA had no authority to claim the land. The end result was the Trail of Tears in 1838 when 15,000 Cherokee were walked to reservations and thousands died. We have to look at the time through the lenses of his age and not with our modern minds. In doing this he was not against minorities, but reflected the views of his time. To us, yes, he is against minorities, but to him he wasn't.

The expansion of women's rights was not an issue in Jackson's day. I do not know that he ever took any position for or against . I am pretty sure that he would not have favo…red any attempts to remove the rights that women had.

Jackson was a candidate for president three times. The first time in 1824 there was no national campaign and the other regional candidates were William Crawford, Henry Clay …and John Quincy Adams. In 1828, Jackson's opponent was the incumbent John Quincy Adams. In 1832, Henry Clay was the opposition
his VP didn't like them, because he felt it was tough on the southern states. South Carolina actually threatened to withdraw from the Union if the TAriff of 1832 were not remo…ved. That's how nullification was created.
