The Ku Klux Klan believed in white supremacy. Their focus was to keep blacks down and encourage fear and violence. Race became something to kill over and it created systems of power. Jim Crow Laws are issued. Jim Crow was the name of the racial caste system. Jim Crow was a series of rigid anti-black laws. William Byrd II was a planter and slave owner.His diaries gave an idea of the identity of American people at this time and how they treated African American slaves. Race based slavery occurred during the late 1600's. White's would capture African American citizen's and ship them off to Ammerica to be sold. Race based slavery was just white people owning blacks. Late 1600's 1900's Segregation was after slaves were freed. Whites wanted their own space so laws that prohibited blacks to be with whites were set in place. Scrub me mama and that boogie beat and many other cartoons portrayed black peopleas low class people. Birth of a Nation portrayed blacks as disorderly, unorganized and abusing power. Title 8 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal to discriminate against a person based on race, color, sex, national origin, or disability. The 14th and 15th amendment was about securing rights for former slaves and that the United States may not prevent a citizen from voting based on that citizen's race. After the slaves were freed a large group of African Americans moved to Harlem. In Harlem a black culture was able to form, showing the African Americans identity as free and equal people. Race is something that has gone through many transitions and although it has changed for the better the racist thoughts still exist in many people.Today many things are different than they were back then. In America race plays a big role. Back in early America, there were slaves. White thought that they were the dominant race. But today all races in America are treated equal. Thats why there are many laws to protect certain races and less racial discrimination. John ThekkumthalaAnthony Angellilli
