Almost every element of American life that had a German connection was changed. Such as German American store owners had their businesses vandalized. Store owners tossed all of his German-made goods into the street and set them on fire. German Americans were accused of being disloyal, they were taunted and discriminated against. the U.S. government ignored certain constitutional principles when it came to German Americans. They even allowed street names to be changed that had German names. They were killed by Americans and it was overlooked and let go.
German Americans felt uneasy. Some went as far as to change their names so people didn't know they were German. They had to be ashamed of who they were to stay safe. It changed these people, it led to them having to hide their true identities to fit in American society.
How women dissenters were treated by the Government and other Americans during WW1.
Jewish Americans were treated unfair by the Government. They faced discrimination by Americans. Nativists and racist organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan often expressed anti-Semitic view towards them. Again the Government overlooked their discrimination.
Despite their harsh treatment, Jewish Americans still banded together to support the war effort. They formed numerous organizations to support the troops and raise money for war victims.
The Hispanic Americans were suspected of being disloyal because of issues arising from tension between the United States and Mexico. Nativists mistrusted this group of people. They fought in our war and were still treated unfairly by our Government and by Americans.
They still fought in the war even while being discriminated by our Government and the American people. They still continued to migrate to U.S. despite the treatment they got here.
Organizations formed to discriminate against the Asian Americans. They as well were treated unfairly by the Government and by the American people themselves.
Asian Americans were considered lower class people. They wanted to fight in the war because they thought they would then be accepted by the American people. But they were still discriminated again during and after the war. It made life in the U.S. difficult for them.
Women went to the war as well as men. Even though these women served for our country the Government still discriminated against then and denied them voting rights.
Women were still looked at as if they needed to be in the home, not serving and working. Many women tried to use their wartime contribution as a reason to let them vote. Eventually they earned that right.
