Historical Report on Race
ETH 125 Week 5

Throughout U.S. history African Americans were considered colored peoples, and they were forced to endure slavery. In the United States, slavery was formed from using people whom were forced to serve as slaves by capturing and sold at auctions. They were then forced to work on plantations as a slave labor which existed as a legal institution in North America. Slavery existed more than a century before the founding of the United States in 1776. In 1865, following the American Civil War, slavery was outlawed in the United States and slaves became emancipated or freeman.

African Americans fought in every war that the United States had throughout history. The Civil Rights and Black Power movements obtained certain rights for African Americans and in doing so, it affected American society in the most far-reaching and important way. In the 1950s Black Americans from the South endured, de jure discrimination. “De jure segregation means racial separation forced by specific laws. All such laws were eliminated in the U.S. by the mid-1960s.

Segregation is no longer seen in the public’s eye, unfortunately in the southeastern United States some still exists today. This movement has influenced heavily other groups and movements in regard to their struggles for civil rights and social equality within America’s society. It has also resulted in the removal of codified, de jure racial segregation, and discrimination. To name a few, the civil rights and social equality movements have had a tremendous impact and been widely influential on the Free Speech Movement, the disabled Americans, women, Native Americans, and migrant workers.
The extent of the legislation is that race is to be understood biologically. Members of racial groups make a tendency to attend and extend themselves to racial in group members more than the out group members. People do not need to be members of a historically disadvantaged group to neither experience nor disregard statements and influences of those groups. Public policies that support the legislation are designed to decrease racial disparities between Blacks and Whites. African Americans were tired dealing with constant racism and inequality. Individual people of this minority group would go to court protesting about not having equal rights as a person. “The civil rights movement that spanned the years following the Brown v. Board of Education decision of 1954...
