Segregation

  1. 1. Segregation
  2. 2. Many communal areas were split to segregate white people from other races. This included phone boxes, waiting rooms and cafes.In many cases, it wasn’t just a case of segregation, but completely banning ‘coloured’ people from even entering some areas. For example “Whites only telephone booth”
  3. 3. It was seen as unhygienic to mix‘coloured’ with ‘whites’This demonstrates the strong separationswhich occurred in public places‘Coloured’ people were seen as dirtybecause of the darker colour of their skinTherefore white people did not want to sharetoilets, swimming pools or drinkingfountains with these people andconsequently the areas were strictly split offThe areas designated to white people wereoften cleaner and taken care of, whereas theother areas were neglected as they wereseen as less important
  4. 4. Black people were treated likeminorities or less important.This is shown thought the fact hateven drinking fountains were notshared.This raises questions as towhether it is right to separatepeople because of their skincolour, so that they may notshare a fountain, as everyone isstill human.The blatant segregation usedlabels above fountains to statewho may drink from it.It is clear that the “white”fountain is well maintainedwith shiny taps and a largebasin. The “coloured” basin issimplistic, small and comes offfrom the main supply of thewhites, meaning the “white”fountain does not associate withthe water use leading tot hesmaller basin.
  5. 5. Segregation spilled into every aspect of the community, even public transport showed the splitting of different races As this picture shows the front of the bus is occupied by white people whichimplies that they felt superior and hadto be further forward. Black people were sent to the back of the bus with no priority of seating. This was challenged by Rosa Parks who refused to give up her seat for awhite man in 1955 which caused a lot of shock and controversy The facial expressions of the white people in this photo shows that they were favoured in society and treatedbetter in comparison to the sadness and loneliness of the black people who were pushed out and treated like animals
