Best and Worst times of the 1920's
Positives and Negative points
Red Scare (social)
The Red Scare was a horrible event that ended in disappointment and tragedy.On May,1,1919 post office officials uncovered a total of 20 bombs in prominent capitalists mail.On September,16,1919 a bomb exploded in a parked horse-drawn wagon and killed 30 people near wall street in manhattans financial district.This was a negative moot point because of the casualties and lives lost.
Racial Conflict (social)
Racial conflict began in 1921 when african american towns people were being brutally murdered at the hands of the angry civilians who were allegedly white.Racism rapidly grew over time throughout the nation and african americans had little to no jobs ,food ,housing ,or funding to provide for their families and them selves.The people were tortured and burned in front of friends and families for unreasonable reasons that were unjust and unfair. This moot point is indeed negative,because of all the men, women and children that had to go through life knowing and feeling as if the world no longer needed or wanted them in it.
Steel Strike (political)
During the recent years after world war I a steel strike began in Chicago and rapidly spread from one state to the next.Workers had grown tired of working 12-8 hours a day without breaks.Meanwhile at the end of work war I a labor turmoil occurred which made the economy buzz with inflation, and controlled labor laws and the number of striking workers grew increasingly and could not be matched to the depression years of 1937. This was a positive moot point because workers eventually got less work hours and got payed more.
The Prohibition era was a stage when people were being band from buying liquor and drug use for positive reasoning.Due to lack of food and and supplies for soldiers,companies provided and advertised different things one could do help support their fellow soldiers in battle to provide healthy and safe lifestyles.This was a positive moot point because several american soldiers were becoming stronger and healthier and had abetter fighting chance during world war combat.
Cars being created made things easier for civilians in America at the time because people were able to go more places and do more things which gave businesses more money and workers more jobs which ment the economy boosted again and people were able to get places faster,when traveling and things like that.this was a positive moot point because it made life easier during that era.
The ku klux klan killed blacks for illegitimat reasons,mostly because they were a racist bunch of white men who thought they could better they're culture by destroy the lives of others.they kill blacks in front of their family,in front of the public,in front of incident children children were also murdered simply for the pigmentation of their skin which is unjust,and a horrible thing to do to an inicent child who has nothing to do with anything towns people and homes were burned to the ground without even thinking twice.this was a negative decision because blacks were horribly murdered for no reason.
illegal aliens as they like to call them flooded the USA and created huge problems because they were invading american soil and many things went wrong immigrants were treated unfairly in both the places they originated from and america as well.this was ultimately a negative moot point because immigrants were being treated unfairly and nobody wanted them around they're little slice of heaven per-say.the picture displayed above is a piece of documentation from an immigrant saying they were deported from columbia.
