Jim Crow By: Jonny Gailius

Political Evidence #1

The newly admitted States were willing to abolish slavery but not willing to make blacks equal.

State after state in the former confederacy passed the so-called Black-Codes, laws that tried to limit the freedom of former slaves

Political evidence #2

Amendments like The 15th Amendment ensured that a citizen's race, color, or history could not be used to keep that individual from voting, so life could be FAIR to all people. These amendments did not mean much because,

-The Supreme Court ruled that the Civil Rights Act of 1785, which outlawed discrimination, was unconstitutional because it violated the right of businesses, institutions, and civic organizations to choose customers, employees, and/or members.

Political evidence #3

The Legal Basis for Segregation included this information

Economic Evidence #1

This chart underneath shows to people that white salaries in certain states are much higher than the negroes. This evidence shows how there can be arguments and problems that are a result of unfairness.

Economic evidence #2

This chart shows that people of color have a higher chance of being unemployed because of their race. If white people and majority groups receive all of the jobs, than the minority groups could get angry and protest.

Economic evidence #3

This chart is very racist and discriminates many people because they are a minority in an economical way. This chart shows that businesses are unfair in the people they select for jobs because they rarely accept minorities. People are not getting jobs because of their race, religion, and origin, which are things no one can control.

Society evidence #1

The Dispute in Plessy v. Ferguson

Homer Plessy was a citizen of the United States and a resident of the state of Louisiana. On June 7, 1802, he purchased a first-class ticket on the East Louisiana Railway from New Orleans to Covington, Louisiana.

He entered a passenger car and took an empty seat in a car for the "colored race."

When Plessy refused to move, he was arrested, brought to trial, and found guiltyof violating a state law requiring segregation on trains.

Society evidence #2

In Society, Black people were segregated by these images here found in the Jim Crow Textbook. These photos were actual pictures from when negroes were segregated.

Society evidence #3

Another way colored people were segregated was by schools. The chart beneath shows the evidence of school segregation on May 18, 1954.
