The American Red Cross responded within the first 24 hours of the riot and found over 8000 homeless African Americans. The Red Cross also found that African Americans were denied adequate treatment and set up a makeshift hospital in a local school, and manned two first aid and infant welfare stations.

At first Reed easily notices the small cultural differences such as the lack of cutlery at the dinner table (48) and also the customs of marriage, which usually signifies wealth and is “no more binding then the most casual attachment” (53).

She mentions “Who is to say that robbing a people of its language is less violent than war” making reference to the artist Ray Gwyn Smith.

Polk’s act of extending borders to California was also seen as unfair because that land belonged to Mexico. Anglo-Saxons are already moving into California and building schools, buildings, and houses.
