Treatment of Colored

African-Americans moved to segregated places in the south but by the 1900s many moved to the North where they had better paying jobs and social equality. Little did they know discrimination was also in the North. Sometimes it became violent in the workplace due to the competition. Violence erupted after a black man killed a policeman when he thought the police officer was mistreating his wife. Word of the killing spread and whites retaliated attacking blacks. But blacks weren't the only ones that faced discrimination.In the late 1800s Mexicans earned a living by working on the railroads where they worked in the Southwest.

Recreation in the U.S.

Around the early 19th century and late 18th Americans began to recreate to get away from industrial work and the congestion of the cities. The reasons today and then were similar because summertime (NOW) people use I as a time to go off on vacation to DisneyLand or Six Flags to get away from the stress of work. We do things now like bicycling not just for fun but to save the environment and excersise, like my ninja BLAS!
