A majority of the reason why many immigrants were attracted to the U.S was because we were industrializing so successfully. They needed jobs, and the US was able to supply that to them.

Dr. W.E.B Du Bois uses this essay to sway the audience of the insufficiency of the statements that Mr. Booker T. Washington has made about African Americans being submissive of rights and the creation of wealth. Mr. Washington believes that the black race should give up and give into what the society norms were at that time sequentially just to have a certain right. Dr. Du Bois refused to believe that the black race should give up one right to get another right. Especially, when the white South had all rights without expecting to give up anything to have those rights.
1) The Immigration Act of 1907 created the Dillingham Commission to review U.S. immigration policy. In 1911 the Dillingham Commission produced a report that highlighted the differences between Old Immigrants vs New Immigrants and the effect on the social, cultural, physical, economic, and moral welfare of the nation. The Dillingham Commission Report favored the "old immigrant" who had come from North Western areas of Europe as opposed to the "new immigrant" who came from South Eastern areas of Europe and other parts of the world. The argument of Old Immigrants vs New Immigrants concluded that immigration from southern and eastern Europe posed a serious threat to American society and should therefore be greatly reduced. 2) Jane Addam founded Hull-House in Chicago, which would eventually become the most famous settlement house in the US.

Washington delivers the 1895 Atlanta Compromise Speech on September 18, 1895, at the Cotton States and International Exposition in Atlanta. In the speech, Booker T. Washington ask African Americans not to be involved with any form of militant protest in order to gain civil rights and equality with the rest of society. In the speech Washington argues: “Our greatest danger is that in the great leap from slavery to freedom we may overlook the fact that the masses of us are to live by the productions of our hands, and fail to keep in mind that we shall prosper in proportion as we learn to dignify and glorify common labour, and put brains and skill into the common occupations of life; shall prosper in proportion as we learn to draw the line between the superficial and the substantial, the ornamental gewgaws of life and the useful. No race can prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem. It is at the bottom of life we must begin, and not at the top.
Washington believe African Americans deserve equal rights, yet the government continuously declines these rights on the notion that African Americans are an inferior race. Washington argues that it is important for African Americans to have equal rights, but he also believes African Americans need to find a way to be prepared for their newfound privileges.

This is the world one would have seen if men like Booker T. Washington successfully imposed their dream throughout the American public. In the “Atlanta Exposition Address,” Booker T. Washington clearly portrays this “dream world” of segregationists. Throughout his speech, Washington makes it obvious the segregationist ideas he aspired to bring to the real world. In the “Atlanta Exposition Address,” a major segregationist theme seen throughout is Washington’s logic that blacks will never advance in the way white people hold.

There was no equal justice. Southern men had to be careful of their language; no doubt, also, careful of their thoughts. It befitted them to be careful, they would feel, in a land that had a bitter epithet, “nigger lover,” for those whom it wished to cast sharp stones. It would seem that as far back as 1906, when a fearful race riot overran Atlanta, Dr. Booker T. Washington had hastened there from Tuskegee and persuaded certain influential whites and Negroes to sit down and consult in the same room over causes of plague that had over taken them, this was the start of the interracial co-operation. Wat Booker T. Washington did was amazing, it was an act of non-violence and brought people from both races together.
“The Immigrant contribution” and “The Quilt of a Country” are two essays that share a similar focus, however, they cover two drastically different sides of the topic.
