When blacks in the North were freed, they were given the right to own property and pay taxes. However, according to the Voting and Jury Rights of Blacks in the North: 1860 chart, the were denied the right to serve on jury duty unless the black male was in Massachusetts after 1860 (Doc A). This example shows that even though slaves were free, the feeling of white superiority and power over blacks still remained. The whites felt that blacks could not represent the United States in court cases, so most states denied the right of jury duty to blacks. Another example of how free blacks in the North were not truly free is also shown in the Voting and Jury Rights of Blacks in the North: 1860 chart.

During World War I
Reconstruction was a failure in many ways. Although Reconstruction did abolish slavery, African Americans did not truly gain their freedom and the nation was not unified. The Emancipation Proclamation that President Lincoln issued in 1863 to end slavery was unsuccessful. In a petition of black residents of Nashville sent to the delegates in 1865, they demanded slavery to be thoroughly abolished and for the right to vote (3). However, not only did many slave owners ignore Lincoln’s order, the Emancipation Proclamation did not eliminate slavery in the Union border states and states under control of the Union.
In the past with the drought, we always had problems such as agriculture, water in wells, lakes, and rivers decreasing. Now we 'll be more have problems such as groundwater level declines, money costs, lands sinking, and that most of our waters sources are decreasing. “Several California Water Science Center streamgages have recently recorded streamflows that are below all-time record lows for specific days of the year”(drought impact). According to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab,“This sinking of land, known as subsidence, is a known consequence of groundwater pumping and a problem that California’s been dealing with for decades.

Most times, if we have tolerance respect and the idea of equality for other individuals, conversations can get along nicely without any defense. But with society today the diversities in America may not be able to tolerate to find any respect for those who look or are from different countries. In my defense for the past 50 years Human Rights have still not changed. The incidents that involve racial profiling are in a more minor scale than it used to, but can be still offensive when being insensitive or being misinformed of their culture. Even long ago blacks were segregated from the
Diagnostic Essay Prompt In an article called “Upstream, Downstream” written by Jenna Craig, she expresses concerns over the amount of water that Texas currently has and how it should be distributed. “Since 2007, Texas has been experiencing one of the worst droughts in history,” since that drought happened the amount of water in Texas has greatly been diminished and it has affected many farmers, citizens, fisherman, etc. Since the water was so scarce during the dry times the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) is allowed to distribute water from agricultural to the environment.

Racism is no longer accepted in America and brands are afraid to be linked to racism, which is proven by the fact that brands either apologize or withdraw their ads if they have been accused of containing racist images or texts. This used to be different, since people were used to racism in the early twentieth century and even used it to sell their products. It was not until the 1960s that laws were entertained in America that had to stop discrimination and after that it was less widely accepted, as seen in the more modern ads. Of course racist ads still exist, but the audience is now much more critical and will point out racism in ads, which can damage the name of a brand or company. It has and always will be about earning money in this industry, so brands will do whatever it takes to make sure that the audience is pleased with their ads, whether this was including racism in the ads or the opposite.
The Dust Bowl was an agricultural devastation that deeply affected the nation in the 1930s. In the beginning of 1932, a drought struck the Midwestern and Southern Plains.

During this time, a lot of laws and projects were taken into consideration to provide relief and promote rehabilitation. The Emergency Relief Appropriation Act was approved on April 8th, 1935 for drought relief.
Droughts have been an inherent aspect of Southern California’s culture for generations. In recent years, however, this dire situation has become increasingly more dangerous. With 2015 being one of the driest years in the state since the 1930’s, water reserves are running on empty. Nevertheless, many regulations have been put in place to address this issue, though, most have not been effective. There are many ways that the Coachella Valley can aid in solving the drought, but perhaps the most simple has been underappreciated: remove your grass.
“ Determining the direct and indirect costs associated with this period of droughts is a difficult task because of the broad impacts of drought, the event’s close association with the Great Depression, the fast revival of the economy with the start of World War II, and the lack of adequate economic models for evaluating losses at that time. “ http://drought.unl.edu/DroughtBasics/DustBowl/EconomicsoftheDustBowl.aspx “ Then the drought began. It would last eight straight years. Dust storms, at first considered freaks of nature, became commonplace. Static charges in the air shorted-out automobiles on the road; men avoided shaking hands for fear of shocks that could knock a person to the ground.
After the Brown versus Board of Education case, they realized that African American children probably felt inferior to the white, so they changed that precedent, and after that case, not wanting any race to feel inferior to anyone else. In the end, people have fought in court to stop discrimination and segregation, and the way the United States, and the way people viewed different races have changed. The Supreme Court may change the way they see things, and precedent changes. The case of Plessy versus Ferguson and Brown versus Board of Education changed the way we see other races
