This is the big question of all to me about segregation, if segregation stops then how will the country be. Also how would others react to this conflict not just in the United States but out of the whole world with having segregation.”Sports today does not have many problems with racism but back in the past there were a lot and it was terrible on how they treated african-americans that knew how to play.” (Monika Stodolska, Kimberly Shinew, Myron Floyd, and Gordon Walker)This statement disturbs me when I read it because our African Americans could not play sports that they are good at jus because of their
It is discussed that the lives of black American did not improve significantly as racism was entrenched in governments and white Americans, especially southerners. Although amendments and acts sought out to better the lives of black Americans, it did not mean they were immediately treated as equal and given rights. Black Americans had a very difficult life post-Civil War as the rest of America was not prepared to stop depriving them of their civil rights as it was beneficial to them to have black Americans kept under oppression. The abolition of slavery cost slave owners over $2 billion in property only. This severely impacted the economy as it was in crisis and white slave owners did not have any slaves to serve them on plantations.
Reconstruction in 1865 through 1877 was terminated by Southern men due to their lack of acceptance of African Americans in restricting their political rights, not following the North’s precedence of equality, and the assassination of many a men by their ever so popular Klan. Reformation began after the Civil War which was fought over sectional differences and heavy slavery in the South. Southerns had always been pro slavery which contributed to their low treatment of African Americans as a whole. Once the South lost the War they could no longer legally enslave African Americans, but that did not change their persona in the eyes of the rich white men. Equality was a concept for white men according to the South, especially considering that
1. This is one of the most prominent aspects of slavery in today’s world, the word nigga/nigger was not used as a term of endearment as we all know but at some point in time it was used as a psychological weapon to make people of African descent actually prefer being referred to as a ‘nigga’ than an African American. This derogatory reference served to separate us from the strong pride 2. Today there is a lack of ample people that we can look up to and be influenced by in our presence, there is a serious lack of education with our culture, how could you exactly teach one different when you were taught or bought up I one way of life? It all is a domino effect that we have cultivated through years of existence, this mold can be broken of course,
It segregated the white people from the colored people which made the colored peoples lifes unfair and many of them didn 't have an easy life. Colored people in the southern states had it even harder because they had to search harder for jobs and opportunities in life. Most of the colored community was not allowed to have a luxuries life like many white americans had in that time period. The white community did not allow interaction between the two groups to be fair and many times it resulted in a harsh ending for the colored people. Everything that a colored person did the whites didn 't like had strong consequences for the colored people.
Much like Sartre energizes, "imperialism is a framework". Take for instance the thought that African-Americans in urban neighborhoods have lower futures. This is because of the absence of subsidizing and scope most get from their less prestigious vocations. Since they hold lower-class employments, they don 't get medical advantages. They were just ready to acquire these employments in any case in light of the fact that they didn 't get a legitimate instruction.
When the phrase Jim Crow is uttered, many people feel a rush of inept thoughts and bad memories due to the social taboo against talking of the lowest point in America’s history. Jim Crow was not just a set of laws aimed to oppress the lives of all black people, but a movement by the citizens, black or white, that caused a corrupt mindset in all men and women. Many people tried to stop the social force from continuing in individual spurts of courage, but they were not able to stop Jim Crow as individuals. An individual’s own personal courage cannot fight against Jim Crow, because a single person would not be able to stop an entire movement embedded into the minds of millions of people, not to mention how the social pressure against it was too strong to even fathom fighting against it. One main reason why it was unable for Jim Crow to be fought by a single person is because there was no feasible way in which one person, no matter how powerful, rich, or socially accepted, could have changed the entirety of
Many people did not have the courage to go up to someone and discuss women’s rights, and if they did the people usually turned down the idea. After the war people started to change their minds about slavery and let go of their slaves (document 5). This caused another problem, African Americans wanted equal rights, but white people still looked down at them. Over all the revolutionary
The KKK let a picture out to the world showing they didn’t want African Americans to vote and wished for them to have the littlest amount to vote. (Document C). The KKK didn’t like African Americans being able to vote because they believed they were not real people and that they didn’t deserve many rights. Freedman, African Americans, or mulattos that were not apart of the military service could not own or even keep a weapon and if caught with a weapon, they would get a fine and the weapon would be confiscated (Document D). The KKK benefited from those people not being able to have a weapon because it meant African American’s had less right, in which they counted for less of a real person.
Blacks in slavery all over the world were not allowed to read or write. Even though some did like Frederick Douglass, that restriction on language hindered their development in language. This made them stick out in a crowd full of white people, who were always allowed to read in gains that growth in English or any other think which. Now with some blacks being the descendants of many of those slaves, the "slave" language has followed them through generations. But they are still criticized in judged on their speech pattern and slang, being categorized into a box labeled "ghetto" or “inferior”.
