Segregation was another harsh time for blacks and made it very unequal to people not of the same race. Segregation made education harder for blacks. They were separated from whites and most of the new blacks’ schools didn’t have the teachers or the money to have nice learnable schools. (McGill) The blacks didn’t like this new education system so they went to appeal it. When questioned, “they said that as long as train cars for blacks and whites Americans were equal, separating the race didn’t contradict to the constitution.”(McGill) Since the blacks had little education, they couldn’t go against the constitution.

I see the mighty city through a mist— The strident trains that speed the goaded mass, The poles and spires and towers vapor-kissed, The fortressed port through which the great ships pass, The tides, the wharves, the dens I contemplate, Are sweet like wanton loves because I hate. The author uses many different juxtapositions in order to convey his emotions, one being; “And makes my heaven in the white world’s hell”.

Steady in his different compositions is his hate for prejudice and the feeling that dogmatism 's certain idiocy renders its followers pitiable and in addition evil. However, having safeguarded his vision as artist and his status as a person, he can rise above severity.
In this section, we will be discussing the residential segregation associated with race and the various factors contributing to the cause of this separation to help us answer our problem formulation.
