Always distinctions will be existing in segregated districts such as facilities in education and transportation. Brown at 50: Can we Fulfill its Vision website’s article writes, “ADL argued that which is unequal in fact cannot be equal in law and therefore segregation and equality cannot be co-exist in public education” (2004, p.2). Black children and their parents always were suffering from these bad distinctions. Because of distinguish between in education facilities; children were not getting good education. They were not preparing themselves for their future.
Basically all of the South’s resources were going to hell. Uncertain economic times make it pretty hard to make a living. African Americans found themselves to be politically limited during this time as Southern states passed laws that limited their access to exercise their right to vote. Literacy tests were used to keep blacks away from ballot boxes, as some states limited the right to vote to those who could pass a literacy test; a large majority of slaves had never learned to read or write. Not surprisingly, white voters were often given easier passages than blacks.
. “In the South, the concept of separate but equal had always been a sham: It might have been separate, but it was never equal” Segregation and ill-treatment towards the African American community followed the race into the workplace. “White teacher salaries were 30 percent higher; and there was virtually no transportation for black children to and from school. The disparity was even greater at the college level, where the Southern states spent $86 million in white colleges and $5 million on black colleges” African Americans simply wanted change. “They demanded equality under the law—to be judged as individuals and not as members of a minority race.” These happenings and social wrongdoings are essentially what caused African Americans to want more of a change than ever before.
There were many problems African Americans were facing before the New Deal became an instrument in the saving of the United States economy. Because of the Depression, African Americans workers were pushed out of jobs, favoring White workers. Because Blacks were last hired and first fired, it made it easier for them to lose their jobs at faster rates. The near subjugation of the tenant farming system destroyed many work opportunities for blacks to have any work because many black agricultural workers did not have other job skills, they were highly unlikely to get employment elsewhere. Many black farmers could not obtain contracts for their crops.
People born into poor families do not have every opportunity as those with money. It is known that blacks, especially in the south, during the years after the civil war, people did not hire blacks. African Americans were not educated so they could not work and if they did work it was for little money because employers knew they could hire
These victims to these horrible things were almost always African American. After the Reconstruction there was still a lot of tension between the blacks and white reconstruction failed for many reasons. The sad fact remains that the ideals of reconstruction was most clearly defeated by the deep seated racism that permeated American life. Racism was why the white south so unrelentingly did not want reconstruction. Racism was the reason why northerners had little interest in black’s right except as a means to protect the union or to safeguard the republic.
They often lived in small cabins regardless of how many there were. They live away from the master’s house because they were not seen as equal. Slaves were worked very hard and had very little rights. Slaves also lived in dirty and uncomfortable quarters. For the most part northerners felt this treatment was immoral.
Blacks people were slaves in the past. The white people bought them and wanted them work for themselves. When president Lincoln freed all the African-American, the slave owners especially who are farmers were very angry with that, because they lost free workers who was earning money for them. Also, many African-American were not getting a good education and that time. Many of them can not find jobs in the society, but they need money to live.
INTRODUCTION: Before 1945, the white attitude to blacks was very different to how it is today. A lot needed changing, and it took a large amount of protests and court cases to do so. For example, blacks had no say in elections, and this was enforced with the grandfather clause (where they had to prove that men of two generations before them had been eligible to vote, which they couldn’t) or the literacy clause (where they had to prove they could read and write, which most of them couldn’t). Discrimination in education and employment had led to social deprivation, and many blacks in the North were living in ghettos. PUBLIC OPINION: During the war, black Americans did not approve of the slogan of the war that focused on equality and liberty, as to them it seemed hypocritical, because all they received was discrimination.
In 1865 he managed to free all the slaves. Even after being free they were not accepted and had struggles with living normally. During the 1960’s they were still not allowed to the same schools, restaurants, parties, and even bathrooms. The government gave less money for their schools, the city was segregated.
