    the female figure representing Canada being excluded from the United States. It seems that the male figure representing Hawaii is disappointed that he is not allowed in, but the female figure representing Canada seems to look like she does not mind not being allowed in.

Moreover, many cases have ended in favor of one side rather than the other purely because of race. The three cases being discussed all ended in the same ruling, held.
