For many reasons, the South did not like what the constitution said. There were many conflicts with the compromise of 1850, map shown in (Document A) and the fugitive slave act. Certain northerners were so against slavery and the fugitive slave act that they even posted warnings for the slaves. Kidnappers were being sent after the slaves, and how Northern abolitionists were revolting against the South's rules and regulations this fugitive slave act also helped drive the tension deeper into the Un-United States. (Document C) A frees soiler did not want to spread slavery, but he is okay with keeping it in a state it is already in.
Another Major flaw was that “the country, whose president, Woodrow Wilson, had dreamt up the idea of the League - America -, refused to join it.” The league’s most powerful militaries Britain and France not only suffered casualties, but also economically as they were greatly in debt to the United States. Because of this neither country was enthusiastic to get involved in disputes that did not affect Western Europe. Therefore the League had no military might and could only enforce economic sanctions in hope that they worked against aggressive nations. All these flaws point to signs that the League of Nations was a failure. However, even though there were a few setbacks, the league was a success in many ways.
Thus, they were officially denied every opportunity for an education in the slave states, while in the free states they were largely excluded from the schools for whites and were given only that training deemed suitable for their inferior status. Indeed, in many places in the North their exclusion from educational opportunities was as complete as it was in the South.”(pg. 78,79) Clearly blacks were deeply encouraged to forgo any hopes of a education in America. The second point of inequality John speaks of is the one in the law. John states “Inequality in the administration of justice and the enforcement of the laws was apparent to any who cared to look.
This is partly due to a combination of factors of which are poor planning and tactics, African American violence and a lack of federal government support. The major reason that the campaigns in the north weren't nearly as successful was due to the lack of federal and local government support, something which was integral to the success of many of the southern campaigns, notably Birmingham and Little rock. The relationship between Johnson and the organisers of the movement was strained because of disagreements over the Mississippi Freedom summer in 1964. Also, King made errors in declaring his stance over the Vietnam War, as he stated that he was anti-war supporter. This would hinder the chances of success in the Northern campaigns because Johnson refused to back and involve himself any further in the campaigns.
After the war, there was still no liberty for blacks; in fact, the colonists disliked the idea of granting freedom to Blacks that they refused their offer to fight on the side of the patriots. George Washington had turned down the requests of blacks, seeking freedom, to fight in the Revolutionary army. Furthermore, many other rights, such as the right of, "no taxation without representation” was violated even after the war. Actually, after the war, the majority of the population still lacked representation, because voting was restricted to land owning, white males, which only made up a fraction of the population. "The Continental Congress, which governed the colonies through the war, was dominated by rich men.
Segregation After the civil war in the USA, the African Americans gain “equal” rights. But the 14th amendment in 1868 (Absolute equality of the two races before the law) didn’t include “social rights” which meant that they didn’t get much choices in society, like choosing where you wanted to sit on a bus. This still made the African Americans feel inferior, knowing that within their home town the “whites” had the choices, and actual freedom. Blacks responded to their situation in 4 ways as their situation began to worsen from 1877. They would co-operate with any willing whites, migrate to the North or West, protest politically and would follow accommodationism.
The American blacks were victims of racism, segregation, discrimination and furthermore poverty in their community. They were neglected by the government. Nonetheless, they were neglected by fought for their rights and equality. The black people in America had their own separate communities away from the whites, because they were neglected by white people and the government. For instant they couldn’t vote in their country.
• Black and white people were divided by politics. • This meant that Black people were treated with less care whilst white people were cared for more. • Barriers were put into place so that Black people couldn’t vote for a new power due to their lack of education. • Tension amongst black and white people turned to hatred causing black people’s opinions and views to be irrelevant to any subject. • Southern school for blacks were poor standards which resulted in black people not being educated enough to vote or work for a living.
That was because the whites were afraid that the black literacy would prove a threat to the slave system. Due to that the law was passed that black weren’t allowed to have any type of education. Life During Civil Rights Movement They mostly faced the problems of being black. Due to them being black they didn’t have many opportunities and they got rejected in everything. Also you can basically say we were here just to be neglected and be treated like nobody, and we were here for no reason.
Slavery was the main reason why the North and South divided and went to war. In the North they did not rely upon slavery economically where the South did through farming. Another factor to why the South lost was because of their lack of industrial capabilities to aid them during war. The North had factories and mills where weapons and supplies could have been built easily whereas the South could not keep up as there industry was very weak. The following essay will discuss these issues in detail plus other factors such as the leaderships on both sides and the aid of foreign support.
