Propaganda was being thrown at the American society that blacks were nothing less than dogs and should be treated like so. The Jim Crow era consisted of separate educational institutions, restrooms, water fountains, restaurants, transportations. On the verge of those, blacks were being convicted of petty crimes and taken as

Causing mistreatment for unidentifiable reasons.

3. How did the Jim Crow era impact the debate over Affirmative Action?
The Jim Crow era actually had greatly influenced Affirmative Action. The reason being is that black people were being treated the equivalent to a dog. White people realized that what was going on seemed unreasonable and put Affirmative Action into effect as a generosity of saying sorry to black’s and other races in which they had treated wrongly.

4. What affect does it have on race relations today?
Affirmative Action is brought to have good intentions on people of the United States of America. Yet, there are still extremists on both ends of the spectrum. From widely known radical white groups like the KKK still in standing from the 1900’s to black supremacist groups stemming from that era. Racism is still going to be a thing. The Affirmative Action may be seen as having given others an unfair advantage over others. Which can be a good case in that. Nonetheless, the past even current treatment of different races never should be

Jim Crow

...cause of the populist movement because they made the cost for their farming equipment increase. Then the railroads were charging the farmers higher prices because they felt secure in the knowledge that they didn’t have any competition. The farmers wanted the government to do something about all of this, so they created two laws. The first was the ICC (Interstate Commerce Commission) which was put into place in order to regulate what the railroads could charge and then the second was the Sherman Anti- Trust Act. The populist movement is responsible for silver becoming the legal tender and change to the 17th Amendment that senators should be chosen by election. Explain the rise of Jim Crow legislation in the South, and discuss its impact on the status of African Americans. Jim Crow wasn’t the name of a person, however, it managed to affect millions of people when it was established after the reconstruction. It was the name that described the...

Bloodlines of the Illuminati

...Bloodlines of Illuminati by: Fritz Springmeier, 1995 Introduction: I am pleased & honored to present this book to those in the world who love the truth. This is a book for lovers of the Truth. This is a book for those who are already familiar with my past writings. An Illuminati Grand Master once said that the world is a stage and we are all actors. Of course this was not an original thought, but it certainly is a way of describing the Illuminati view of how the world works. The people of the world are an audience to which the Illuminati entertain with propaganda. Just one of the thousands of recent examples of this type of acting done for the public was President Bill Clinton’s 1995 State of the Union address. The speech was designed to push all of the warm fuzzy buttons of his listening audience that he could. All the green lights for acceptance were systematically pushed by the President’s speech with the help of a controlled congressional audience. The truth on the other hand doesn’t always tickle the ear and warm the ego of its listeners. The light of truth in this book will be too bright for some people who will want to return to the safe comfort of their darkness. I am not a conspiracy theorist. I deal with real facts, not theory. Some of the people I write about, I have met. Some of the people I expose are alive and very dangerous. The darkness has never liked the light. Yet, many of the secrets of the Illuminati are locked up tightly simply because secrecy is a......
