and the 1930's

The 1930's

The Great Depression hit the U.S and everyone's lives changed. Jobs were lost, people went hungry, and families became poor.

African Americans were still viewed as "unequal" compared to Whites, and considered by some to not even be human.

What does it mean?

Intolerance means:

Unwillingness to accept views, beliefs, or behavior that differ from one's own.

Intolerance Then and Now


  • Churches were divided into Black churches and White churches
  • Blacks were viewed as inferior beings
  • Whites were told to never interact with African Americans
  • Blacks were segregated
  • Blacks did not really have any rights whatsoever


  • Churches accepts all races
  • Some groups still view blacks as inferior beings (example: KKK)
  • All races and people interact with each other
  • Blacks are not segregated
  • Blacks have the same rights as everyone else

A Good Example of Intolerance

Adolf Hitler believed that the "Aryan race" was the master race. The "Aryan race" were people who were blonde, blue-eyed, and tall.

One of the many religions Hitler refused to believe in was Judaism, and as many know he did not tolerate Jewish people.
