Racism and segregation

  1. 1. RACISM AND SEGREGATION
  2. 2. • Racial segregation is separation of humans into racial groups in daily life. It may apply to activities such as eating in a restaurant, drinking from a water fountain, using a public toilet, attending school, going to the movies, riding on a bus, or in the rental or purchase of a home.
  3. 3. The chicago race fire of 1919 • During Chicago’s five-day race riot, 38 people died and more than 500 injured. It began on July 27, 1919, after a white man caused a black beachgoer to drown. Afterward, police and civilians had violent confrontations, arsonists set fires, and bloodthirsty thugs flooded the streets. Latent tensions between blacks and whites came to a head. From 1916 to 1919, blacks rushed to Chicago seeking work, as the city’s economy boomed during World War I. Whites resented the influx of blacks and the competition they gave them in the workforce, especially since economic problems followed the WWI armistice. During the riot, resentment spilled over. While 25 other riots occurred in U.S. cities that summer, the Chicago riot is considered the worst.
