Paragraphs

Problems surrounding discrimination was that blacks didn’t receive the same education. Jim Crow laws had a huge impact on the south. Whites would treat blacks as secondary citizens. There would be whites lynching blacks because they couldn’t get caught. Houses were burned down and blacks were beat. There was nowhere safe for African Americans. Discrimination affected mainly blacks. In reality it affected Mexicans as well because they weren’t looked at as equal citizens. The discrimination started during slavery and still hasn’t ended. Discrimination is blinds people. They don’t know when it is here and when it goes. The problem was really around African Americans and Hispanics. The Caucasians think that they were better than any other race, but it really wasn’t true. Everybody are equal, I guess back in the early 1900’s they didn’t care.

W.E.D Dubois was an American sociologist historian, and a civil rights activist. He was a co-founder of the NAACP in 1909. He was concerned with discrimination because he believed African American’s needed the same chances for an advance education. He protested against lynching, Jim Crow laws and discrimination in education. He wrote essays exposing discrimination against blacks. Booker T Washington was the architect of the Atlanta Compromise. It was an agreement that provided that southern blacks would submit to discrimination, in exchange that northern whites invest in Southern enterprises and fund black educational charities. Dubois had different views than Washington when it came to education. Dubois believed black schools should offer liberal arts curriculum because liberal arts were required to develop leadership. Things did change thanks to the beliefs of Dubois. He encouraged blacks to strive for an education. Discrimination is still an issue in the South. There is still racism, lynching and some aspects of Jim Crow left in some states but overall, discrimination is less of in issue in other states.

Interesting paragraph/overview by pointing at the lack of equal education was one of the man problems surrounding discrimination. Although it does have a lot of great ideas and points, this paragraph lacks depth! It does not challenge my ideas, views or thinking. But this paragraph does prompt me to look into the different views between Booker T Washington and W.E.D Dubois. It also makes me question, if students were given an equal education back then, where would we be now. Great starting point in research.

Evolution of the Race Problem :: W E B Du Bois . org

This paper is interesting for, among other reasons, his interpretation of Darwinian evolution as it applied to the progress of races over time (and the human race also), and its implications for social policies -- all in contradistinction to many of the tenets of the so-called social Darwinism found in the U.S.A. at the time.

Effects of African-American Initiatives During the Progressive Era:

African-Americans fought to end discrimination but it did not lead to immediate changes in legislation.There were several changes however that took place that impacted African-Americans. Organizations such as the NAACP and NUL all led to building stronger African-American communities. They provided healthcare, housing and educational services. The reporting of lynching and other acts of terror in African-American newspapers led to mainstream newspapars  making it a national initiative.
