Transcript of Class Division In The South

Class Division In The South Dylan Thomas & Ian Neeland What Was Class Division? Class Division is basically dividing people up by race, religion, etc. How did the north and south devide them selfs? Why Did The South Have Division? They made a imaginary wall/line that they were not aloud to pass. How did people get put into the classes that they were in? To keep people in what they thought to be there right place They got put into the classes they were in by religion, color of there skin, and where they live. What Laws Were There To Keep People Divided Into Their Classes? There were many laws in place to keep people divided in their classes, some common laws were;
-Poll Taxes (that were to expensive for most black people of the time).
-Louisiana passes a law that required separate entrances for blacks and whites.
Ians Reflection I think that the 30's was a bad time to live because of the the class divisions, and great depression. I am learning that the times were a lot worce than i thought they were because off the class divisions, and not having that much money at all. I belive that people nowadays have it really easy compaired to back then. Now kids just sit down allday playing games, back then kids had to work there hardest if they wanted to eat. Despite the fact that nearly everyone in the country was hurt to some degree by onset of the Depression, the 1930's was a period of exacerbted class conflict. One possible reason for this was the divergent responses which upper and lower class individuals had to the crisis. While many of the richest people in America lost money when the stock market crashed, the upper classes as a whole still retained much of the wealth which they had held before the Depression and in most cases did not suffer from unemployment. Perhaps as a way of displaying their continued prosperity in the face of nationwide suffering (or of trying to show up their social equals who may have been hit harder by the crash) many among the upper classes began to flaunt their wealth more than ever. Working class Americans, many of whom were thrown out of work by the Depression (which they often correctly blamed upon the reckless financial dealings of the upper classes) were shocked and angered by this ostentatious display of wealth. In my mind the 1930's were probably some of the worst years
to live. With the Great Depression, racisim, and all the other crazy stuff going on, it was no doubt a hectic life. I think that someone had to live through it, ether now or then, you have to know history in order not to repete it.
