The party wished for end of robbery by the capitalist. The party looked at the government as racist people that has robbed Blacks of their worth. Decent housing that is comfortable for the Black community was requested so that their people can remain in the comfort they deserve. The fifth point was the need for education, the type of education that was wanted were the teachings of African American history. The party also wanted all black men to be exempted from military service for these following reasons, they didn’t believe that black people should be forced to fight for a racist government and that it is also unfair to put their life at risk when the government doesn’t protect black people.
In Democracy in America, Tocqueville distinguishes material and moral differences being the cause, and concludes that states distinguished by slavery are intensifying their hardships. When Tocqueville discusses slavery of the South, one of the first things he mentions is that it originated there. The southern states were the first to receive slaves, and the further north you traveled, the more the number of slaves decreased. This is due to a difference in material need. “The question of slavery was, for masters in the North, a commercial and manufacturing question; in the south, it is a question of life or death.” (Pg.
On the contrary, Du Bois only provided one view to how African Americans were being treated; Washington had a friendlier approach. This may be due to his fear of being lynched or placing African Americans in a harsher situation than they already were. Washington seemed more methodical—he was thinking about African Americans having the full rights of the 14th and 15th amendments. At the same, he was also concerned about the consequences of his speech, and if it angered the whites more than it relieved the situation they were all facing. Washington and Du Bois had every intention to improve the social and political status of African Americans, but they sought different plans to achieve such goals due to their different upbringings, values, and opinions.
In ‘The Convict Lease System,’ Frederick Douglass discusses the reasons why black people made up about ninety percent of convicts, which most of the blame for that is put on the whites in the essay. Why does Douglass say that the exclusion of black people from White religious institutions serves as a catalyst for their convictions and why does he also hold White people responsible for the conditions of this system? African-Americans were convicted in immense amounts during the 1880’s. Not only were they convicted, but they were also treated in a way that seemed to be a by-product of slavery. Black people were excluded from public locations and were “left up to grow up in ignorance and vice.” They weren’t given a chance to be part of daily activities among whites, and
their point is valid they gave them rights and protection then they removed protection they became racist and wanted them out of the government. (Doc D Paragraph One) The Northern Neglect got tired of the freedmen's problems and the ‘carpet-bag government’. They north shifted their attention and their opinion was against Reconstruction policies. (Doc C Paragraph One) They changed their minds and decided they didn't want equal rights after all. “Northern voters grew indifferent to events in the SOuth.” (Doc C Paragraph One) Like I said their points are valid but as the South was active and violent the north published a few articles and ignored.
Discussing the difficulties that Frederick Douglass and other slaves have encountered during the first half of the 19th century. The struggles are being told in “Learning to Read and Write” by Frederick Douglass. The main obstacle was learning to read and write and being stripped from that experience so African-Americans don’t become educated. Fearing the ideas of their owned slaves surpassing them in intelligence and overthrowing them. But comparing that to of “Learning to Read” by Malcolm X of the mid-20th century where slavery ended but racism is still America’s greatest threat.
After analyzing a multitude of documents on the contrasting views of Lincoln, I was forced to come to the conclusion that Lincoln was both a racist and an emancipator. A racist is a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another, Lincoln did not see free blacks as colonists making many believe he was racist. But on the other hand he freed the slaves in the south giving him the title of the Great Emancipator. An emancipator is a person who frees someone or something from bondage, oppression or restraint which is exactly what he did when he freed the slaves. While Lincoln was president he saw both races suffering from events taking place at that time.
Their goal was to end the racial discrimination and segregation amongst. They believed that slavery was a sin and that it was every American’s obligation to help free them back to Africa. Not many people agreed though. Both Northerners and Southerners did not support he ways of goals of the abolitionist. They thought that it threatened the racial social order and created economic instability.
Washington’s “Atlanta Compromise” speech is a highly influential agreement struck since he used so much imagery while encouraging African Americans and whites to not be resentful people mainly towards each other. He wanted to inspire African Americans to take their education seriously and also improve economical gains to support political equalities for all. Washington used a simple story to illustrate a moral to point out his call for economic comity. However, disfranchise and segregation movements started in 1890. The south treated African Americans with denigration and humiliation.
