He also argues that this is a cycle that inevitably results in a trans-generational marginalization of the black race. On top of this, he argues that the white middle class are unrelenting with their methods of depriving black advancement in American society. Knowledge of this incites many blacks to occupy dead-end jobs, or to settle for mediocrity in the face of adversity. A large number of black males in America find themselves forced to take jobs that offer no security, or socioeconomic growth. He also contends that many blacks are not very literate and therefore left behind in cultural revolutions like the information age.
It makes people about how different it was for colored people back then. How they had no rights and no freedom. It makes a person angry to think about how they used to be treated, “when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim; when you have seen hate-filled policemen curse, kick, brutalize, and even kill your black brothers and sisters with impunity (King,
Farmers did not like the Acts because their debts increased so they were forced to sell part of their land. When they sold their land, the British creditors buying it would cheat them out of what their land was actually worth. Colonial leaders were puzzled and all the things that would go to them went to the King of England. Finally, Samuel Adams criticized the government about all the Acts. He organized a rebel group, the Sons of Liberty, to protest the Acts.
The history of the blacks is neglected in African-Americans classrooms, resulting in the development of an inferior feeling among the blacks. In chapter two of the book, Woodson states that education in American schools drifted from the truth when it started conditioning the blacks to admire the Greeks, British, and Romans. Consequently, the African-Americans developed a belief that they have a lower intellectual ability. The mindset is still present in the contemporary United States. For instance, business started by the black people are not well received in the locality they intend to serve.
This appears man times throughout The Crucible. One time is when Mary Warren is getting questioned about pretending and she then accuses John Proctor. She did this because she was scared for her life. That show weakness because she cannot handle being questioned. Another example of weakness is when Abigail Williams runs away from Salem and robs her uncle.
The same year slavery was abolished, The Black Codes were created. These laws oppressed black people and restricted their freedom. Because of the poor treating of African Americans and the Black Codes, The Reconstruction period was a failure. Some people were very unhappy when slavery was abolished.

Don’t you think it’s about time people start thinking of each other as equals? An outsider is a person who doesn’t correspond to a particular group or is overpowered by people of higher estate. Outsiders are constantly alienated because they are abused by the people with authority, leaving them with no voice in decision making, this sensation is seen in the French Revolution, Industrial Revolution,The Metamorphosis, and Fences. During the French Revolution and Industrial Revolution young children and adults went through rough times, whether they had very little money or were starving because of how poor they were. Going into the French Revolution, Louis the 16th created an imaginary border between the rich and middle classes due to being
Organizations like these, detrimentally hurt the modernization of the South, leaving them in the dust ibn comparison to the north. The north believed the Southern Black men had to rely on their own resources, and not demand any further assistance from the north. The north got them their freedom, but for the most part didn’t want much to do with them after that. Whites in the south just saw them as a great big joke when they were holding office, or when they thought they had an impact on politics. This was the case because for an incredibly long amount of time blacks were made the inferior race, white men handicapped their growth and intelligence, making them simply into a labor force that couldn’t even think for themselves.
Both southerners and northerners had to rebuild the south, but a lot of southerners rejected the help and just wanted it to be back to normal with slaves and cash crops.

In Chapter, 5, an intercalary chapter, the tenant farmers suffers from the payments that were unable to be paid mainly due to the decreased crop production. The quote describes the owner’s situation where they were also struggling to pay for the debt they made. Steinbeck uses personification (metaphor) such as the ‘bank monster’ avoiding eating side-meat and ‘breathing’ to describe the bank’s desperate situation where their business would not be able to survive without the reliance on the landowners. Like the monsters, who break the peace and show their wickedness from their unconsciousness, the bank became a source of suffering and pain of the tenant farmers and transformed into ‘money-demanding machine’ when they got into a desperate situation.
On the political side, the South resented the North. On the social side, the slaves were freed but not accepted at all into society, as “...one negro counted as three-fifths of a man” (Doc 130, p 310). On the economic side, the loss of slaves was a shock to the economy; so was the war itself since it was fought mainly on Southern
