“Separate free schools shall be established for the education of children of African descent; and it shall be unlawful for any colored child to attend any white school, or any white child to attend a colored school.”
This law made it tough for blacks to go to school because their schoolhouses were almost always torn up houses in plains or any other hard-to-reach areas. This was also extremely unfair because the whit kids got fancy mansion-like houses.
“It shall be unlawful for a negro and white person to play together or in company with each other in any game of cards or dice, dominoes or checkers.”
This law made it impossible for people of different color to play board, or any type of game together. Even if, say, the white guy and black guy were friends, they could not play dice, checkers, or dominoes.
The Great Depression
The Great Depression was an economic catastrophe, it started (mostly) from the NBER stock market crash in October 1929. For this reason many have said that the Depression started on Main Street and not Wall Street. This downfall of the stock market was leading the economy in an ominous direction. Some say that the fall in stock prices had a negative wealth effect on consumption, but attributes only a minor role to this given that stocks were not a large fraction of total wealth; the stock market in 1929, although falling dramatically, remained above the value it had achieved in early 1928, and the propensity to consume from wealth was small during this period.
