Jim Crow Laws decreased the power of African Americans because of their race since the laws gave white people better treatment, they suppressed African American voting, and they served as a legal way to discriminate based on the color of one's skin.
Body Paragraph 1:
Jim Crow Laws decreased the power of African Americans solely because of their race since the laws gave white people better treatment. According to PBS, "In legal theory, blacks received 'separate but equal' treatment under the law — in actuality, public facilities for blacks were nearly always inferior to those for whites, when they existed at all." Schools served as a great example of this. As the Constitutional Rights Foundation points out, though schooling was provided for both black and white children under the law, "most segregated public elementary and secondary schools struggled with inadequate resources to prepare students for higher education in black neighborhoods." In other words, white people received better treatment that led to better futures. A better childhood education leads to a better adult education, which leads a better job with better pay and ultimately more power to make decisions and enact meaningful change. Jim Crow Laws systematically decreased the power of African Americans by ensuring they would never reach the same successes as white people by giving preferential treatment to white people. However, that is not the only way the laws decreased African American power solely because of race.

Write/type body paragraphs
Enforced from the late 1800s until 1965, Jim Crow laws were a series of legislative initiatives to maintain racial segregation in the Southern United States after the Civil War. Following the fall of the Confederate States of America, federal laws granted rights to African Americans who had once been slaves; however, Southern Democrats, who were largely plantation owners and white supremacists, were determined to suppress any power new freedmen might achieve. Instituting voter suppression through poll taxes, literacy tests, and proof of residency requirements pushed those Southern Democrats into elected office, meaning they could enact state and local laws to further disenfranchise African Americans. As a result, separate but "equal" legislation began popping up throughout the South, separating individuals by race. Drinking fountains, schools, train cars, and waiting rooms all became fair game for discrimination, for rarely were the conditions African Americans faced anywhere near the luxuries White Americans experienced. Jim Crow Laws decreased the power of African Americans because of their race since the laws gave white people better treatment, they suppressed African American voting, and they served as a legal way to discriminate based on the color of one's skin.
