Equal Rights In the 1900's

What was it like in the 1900's for Women and Blacks

Discrimination In the 1900s

African Americans were kept out of society socially, politically, economically and educationally. In Mississippi the average amount of money spent on a black child's education is about three dollars. While as for a white child it's sixty dollars. That a huge difference and you can see why they are kept out of society educationally because only three dollars are put into their education.Also they were lynched which means they were accused of doing something that they didn't do and they were hanged in public for all to see.

Discrimination now and how it has changed

In today's modern world we believe in equality. Racism is not as abundant than it was in the 1900s. In recent studies its show that black and Latino people are more likely to get pulled over and frisked. Frisked means to pat down and search, than white people. In New York 80% of people pulled over were black and Latino while 8% were white.

Women's Rights

Women in America have lots of disadvantages. Like they get paid less for doing the same work. Most women did not have jobs back then and were told to stay at home and clean.

This stereo typical phrase was used back then and some people still use it today. In the 1920s a women's rights movement was enacted that made sure women had equals right and could even vote in elections. Nowadays women are more respected and are treated fairly.
