Unemployment rates varied between whites and blacks. Blacks were more susceptible to becoming unemployed. Even when poverty rates were down, black people were still the majority of unemployed people. If a black person got a job, he was more likely to be paid less. Especially in teaching if you scroll down.
Average salaries for teaching were different between whites and blacks (Whites earned more). This because white people had an advantage in society. With a bad salary, the black people may not be able to afford as much and may have to quit their job to find a better one. That may be even harder. As you can tell from above, blacks will not be able to get a job as easily and may be discriminated while attempting
People were most discriminative towards black people about working. Black people were more discriminated against, and with the troubles stated above, times were extremely hard to work and provide for a family. However, that's not it black people were also in trouble socially which could make the work environment extremely tougher and they may not appreciate their job because the atmosphere is so bad. In spite, they would have to stay there because it was so hard to fined a well paying job that gives enough support that enables you to provide for your family.
Black people had to sit in the back of busses because white people feel more superior. The whit people at the time had the audacity to make themselves feel as if they were on an elevated level because they were white.
Black people got lynched for talking to a white woman. This is because everyone will think that the black person raped her. To Kill a Mokingbird is a good book that portrays this extremely well. Tom Robinson got kissed by Mayella Ewell and got ruled guilty for rape.
