Loopholes in Equality

The Jim Crowe Laws, after the time of reconstruction, were the worst ways to treat people in my opinion. They segregated the whites from colored people in schools, hotels, restaurants, and restrooms, which is completely unjust and didn’t help the development of the American society. An example of this unjustness was Homer Plessy in the case “Plessy vs. Ferguson”. He was arrested for being a mixed person riding in the whites’ only section of a railroad car. The Supreme Court ruled the arrest as legal because it was separated, but equal. So in conclusion, the Jim Crowe laws were completely unfair and cruel.


Leo Frank

Leo Frank was a sick man for killing Mary Phagan. As much as people are denying the fact that he conducted the crime, and as much as there is a glimmer of hope that he didn't do it, each accusation of the man points to the murder. This needs to be shared to the nation or at least the general area so that people may avoid this man and be safe. He is terrible.


Coca Cola

Coca Cola is one the best uprising drinks in the world at the moment, according to many people's opinions. The cocaine in the beverage left us wanting more, but all that did improve funds of the company. It did nothing for us, but they took out the cocaine and now it is even better. It's enjoyably tasty without the addictive nature of the drink because of the cocaine.


Women's Rights

This is an important movement for the U.S because it eliminated the border between male and female citizens. It made both equal and gave women the determination to fight for what they believed was their God given right. We completely support the movement which encouraged women to speak out and stand up for what they thought was right.

What's Happening in the New South?

Loopholes in Equality

During the 1880s, a new passing of laws involving segregation of whites and colored peoples occurred in the South. These laws were known as the Jim Crowe Laws. One of these laws required citizens to pay a poll tax, intending to eliminate the poor blacks. Another one required citizens to prove their ability to read prior to being able to vote, eliminating the illiterate blacks. Voting was scheduled during planting season, erasing the black sharecroppers. Racial violence also occurred during this period, including the Ku Klux Klan (the KKK). They had several tactics, including the beating and murdering of blacks, as well as the burning of churches and crosses. The Democratic White Primary made it so that blacks were not permitted to vote in an election within a party to determine a party’s candidate. All of this together was disenfranchisement towards blacks.

Leo Frank

On a regular Saturday morning at the National Pencil Factory, Mary Phagan arrived to collect her pay for the week. The superintendent of the factory, Leo Frank, gave her the pay. He carried on with his regular work for the day, until Mary was found dead by Newt Lee (the night watchman) in the lowest floor of the Pencil Factory. He called the police who investigated the scene. The child had a note in hand and was covered in coal marks. Once news about the murder of the young white female broke out, the town went crazy. Three of the workers of the factory were put behind bars. They were Leo Frank, Jim Conley, and Newt Lee. All of them were tried, and eventually it was narrowed down to Conley and Frank. After a long time of deliberation, it was decided that Leo Frank was the one who murdered Mary Phagan. Leo Frank was sentenced to death by hanging.

Coca Cola

Most everyone has heard of the delicious new drink Coca Cola. It’s been the largest soft drink company since 1886. It was first sold at Jacob’s Pharmacy and was originally called Coca Wine. It used to contain cocaine, but as of this year it no longer contains this addictive substance. The cocaine was found to leave people craving more and more of this fizzy beverage. Now that the cocaine has been taken out, it still tastes great, but it will not leave you in such as dire need to drink it again. It’s better for you now and thanks to the great John Pemberton, we now have an exciting beverage on her hands that’s safe and tastes great!

Women's Rights

Women's suffrage was an uprising occurrence during the Civil War. After the men had left or battle, the women had to take over most of the men's previous jobs. This sparked an uproar about gender equality among women who believed that they were equal to men. After a long while of protesting and fighting, the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) was founded. Carrie Chapman Catt was established as the head of NAWSA, and Alice Paul was the head of the National women's party. These people were in a parade protesting in favor of women's rights on March 3rd, 1913. Men were also in support of women's suffrage. However, a few men there for the inauguration of Woodrow Wilson blocked the path of the parade, calling out the women there for the things they did and the clothes they wore. They beat the women and cracked foul jokes aimed towards the women. Even the police did this. This made it almost impossible for the parade to continue. Eventually, two ambulances arrived and against these rude people. A secretary of war responded the request from some police and sent troops to help control the crowd. After all hardships, many who weren't injured continued on the route of the parade.
