Crime in the 1930's was grueling there was a lot of bank robberies, run-ins with the police.
Taylar Riley's insight:

 Dear Lashenae,

 

 How are you I hope you are doing well? Life down here in Dallas is crazy. It’s January of 1931 .Did you know there was a stock market crash in 1929 this was a crazy time period. There was many people that invested their money into these markets and when they crashed they lost their money. Many were gamblers anyway, trying to get rich quick. Many people also took loans from banks to invest in the stock markets. Then the stocks crashed. That was a very hard time for stock investors. Even worst for the banks the stock market made people think and start to take their money out of the banks. The way banks work they loan other people money and so when they started to take their money out of the banks they banks started going bankrupt. Many banks were being closed because of inefficient funds. So I advise you not to out your money in any banks. But did you hear about the dust bowl I know how your dad is a farmer and he had huge farmlands. Giant dust storms brought on by droughts and poor farming methods in the mid-western region. Storms blocked out the sun and dust from the region hit even the East coast. The dust storms were very powerful they killed many farmers’ crops. Living conditions for people in the dustbowl was very hard; dust storms were so powerful they came threw the houses. Kids lungs were starting fill up with dust. People began to die from there lungs being filled with dust. It was a very hard time for farmers and families that lived during that time. Now this crime is another thing you will never believe what happened to me when I was in a bank. You will never begin to believe who was robbing the bank, Bonnie and Clyde you know they are together. I heard they had been robbing banks and gas station and stilling cars. Oh and I saw Al Capone girl he was driving one of them ford cars. I just bought me one. Down here people keep calling me an Okie and I keep telling them that I am not an Okie. There is a lot of okies down here. Do you know what an okie? Well if you don’t they are people that migrate from Oklahoma. Most Okies were in Competition with Mexican Americans that faced discrimination and were in the search for jobs. Let me tell you about that Herbert Hoover though. Herbert was optimistic through the crash of the stock market his policy initiatives for depression relief failed while millions were living in Hoovervilles “ I seen a lot of hoovervilles in Dallas. Hoovervilles were makeshift shantytowns made from tints and shakes. When I was riding by them I was praying and thinking I thank god for what I have and I was praying that he would help them. These hoovervilles were built on public lands. They named them hoovervilles after president hoover. Lahenae when I say the hobo rates are going up they hitting sky high. One of them tried to rob me. Many of them were just jumping trains. I heard they was searching for jobs I wanted to tell them there isn’t any jobs round here. Many of them were young people looking for work and food. They was listening to this weird music I think the artist was Woody Guthrie I heard his music was illustrating the hard times of American people. People now say that his folk and blues music is considered to be a foundation for later folk and rock music. I was listening to one of his songs and he was talking about working people and the dust bowls. But you know he got this great song called “This Land is Your Land.” Its very nice it’s gone be a hit. You should listen to him sometimes he is a great artist. I was listening to that song and it got me thinking we should really start dong something to better this world. When we leave it’s going to be even harder for the next generation. These times were very hard for us .Did you hear about them people having to wait in breadlines for a piece of bread and soup. You know sometimes I wish I had lots of money you know to invest my money into something that would actually make a difference. I would make shelters for the hobos, build factories so that the okies can have jobs and also build homes so there will be no more hoovervilles. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could make a change? Back to that Woody Guthrie he has some good songs you should have your father listen to one of his songs it would really up lift his spirit. Well Lahshenae I love you and hope your life keeps going well talk to you later.

 

 Sincerely, Taylar Riley
