From segregation to election:
The segregation start in 1875 after the Secession War, the southern states of North America voted the Jim Crow Law (blacks slaves were now citizens) but the Jim Craw Law became a real segregation. Blacks peoples were not equal to whites peoples : They are always seperated : in the bus, restaurants, school, toilets, etc ...
Blacks had to sit on the floor in cinemas , to let their seat in the bus to white people ( Rosa Parks said "NO" to let his seat in the bus to a white man in 1955 she is a figure of Blacks Civil Right with Martin Luther King Jr. (Famous speech : I Have A Dream, he was assassinated in 1968)
After the segregation in 1960 , blacks peoples were not respected by whites people because they were in the same restaurants, school, toilets and whites peoples were angry about the "NIGGER" (Nigger is an insult about black peoples).
