African delegates were not in attendance while European nations debated their future. Elizabeth Heath from Oxford References writes, “During the 1870s and early 1880s European nations such as Great Britain, France, and Germany began looking to Africa for natural resources for their growing industrial sectors as well as a potential market for the goods these factories produced.” The European nations were unconcerned with the cultural consequences of their actions in Africa. They were only focused on improving their economies through Africa 's resources and consumer market. This treatment caused Africa to suffer due to their lack of independence. Africa continued to suffer over time reaching to modern times where parts of it are considered developing countries.
Another explanation of the violence that occurs in South Africa is blamed on the ANC government’s service delivery bad record, what Apartheid didn’t damage, the ANC did. South African xenophobia has also been explained by the level of social and economic inequality in the country. It has been noted that the greatest punishments of xenophobic violence have been carried out in borders of formal society, where foreign nationals compete with the poorest South Africans to make themselves a basic living. And then lastly, South Africa’s immigration policies are also blamed for exasperating the problem. There are millions of foreigners in South Africa, with majority being black foreigners and they have come to be seen as a serious threat to the impending economic health of the country.
Board of Education case a parent of a black child named Oliver Brown went to the government in concern that the 14th Amendment, made from the Plessy v. Ferguson case, stated that the race separation should be "Separate but equal". But Oliver Brown believed that this law was not being followed. The white public schools were much different than the black public schools. The white schools were much cleaner, nicer, had better education, more teachers, etc. But the black schools had nothing even close to those opportunities in their school.
Although slavery was declared over after the passing of the thirteenth amendment, African Americans were not being treated with the respect or equality they deserved. Socially, politically and economically, African American people were not being given equal opportunities as white people. They had certain laws directed at them, which held them back from being equal to their white peers. They also had certain requirements, making it difficult for many African Americans to participate in the opportunity to vote for government leaders. Although they were freed from slavery, there was still a long way to go for equality through America’s reconstruction plan.
It failed in many ways but also was kinda a success one way that it failed is that blacks or African American people they were not equal to whites after the reconstruction African Americans were still much poorer than whites and were not able to vote also had to deal with segregation. However, at the end of the reconstruction black or African Americans were not slaves anymore and they we still freed and the southern states were able to join the union again. Another way that reconstruction failed is that carpetbaggers came down from the north and took advantage of the devastated south in 2 ways financially and politically and since that anyone who took part was not able to hold public office be a lawyer a businessmen etc.because if they had then they could buy farms and mansions with tax returns and leave the poor poor. It was successful in that it had restored the United States as a unified nation they all had drafted new constitutions and the thirteenth,fourteenth and fifteenth amendments and pledged their loyalty to the U.S. government. It failed to protect former slaves from white people and their ways or racism and
The idea of them being an unfit race who was in need of probation and instruction seemed to more closely relate to white Klansmen of the South. Their actions spoke louder than words and it seemed as though they were begging to be put in their place. African Americans were not to be punished, if anything it was the white men. They enslaved African Americans, beat, and battered them for years yet when they finally get their freedom it’s as though life will never continue to flourish. The South proved that they needed probation that was never forced upon them.
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.
Jim Crow laws are a complex set of laws and customs separating the races in the south. Jim Crow laws have deprived many American citizens of their civil rights by, being prohibited to things such as interracial marriage, whites and colored going to the same schools, and not getting service at restaurants. This Jim Crow laws have made it very hard for American citizens to do everyday activities that seem so impossible to think about not having. One Jim crow law states “All marriages between a white person and a negro or person, or between a white person and a person of negro descent to the fourth generation inclusive, are hereby forever prohibited. ( Florida) This makes the civil rights of American citizens very different financially and emotionally.
There is a saying in Africa, “Don’t make decisions about us, without us!” Andrew Jackson did not talk to the Indians before he made a bad decision which cost the lives of 4,000 Indians and dislocated 46,000 others. At the same time, the settlers weren’t happy with the Indian Removal Act process, it was too slow for them. “The policy was enacted with remarkable speed, but not fast enough to satisfy whites in the South and Southwest.” (p.331) Jackson's Democracy was always cast for the benefit of white men, it didn't even include white
The Blacks, however were limited in what they could take to get higher in education, and the schools they attended provided them with less resources for learning. During this time, education was a main force for advancement in society. The lack of education, resulted in less paying jobs, which created the stereotype that African Americans were not on the same level of intelligence with the whites. Therefore, the Whites felt as if they were supremacy in the race. Even after, fighting for educational rights over a long period of time.
