Sadly, race relations did not advance significantly during this period as Jim Crow Laws became the de facto law of the South. In the case of Plessy v. Ferguson, a man named Homer Plessy who was 7/8 white and 1/8 black challenged a Louisiana law in 1892 by sitting in the “whites only” car of a Louisiana train. He didn’t win his case, and the US Supreme Court said that states could legally require separate-but-equal facilities for blacks and whites. This gave Southern states the green light to promote segregation in ALL areas of life by creating more and more Jim Crow laws. Race Relations Model Writing – Par 2 Jim Crow laws were originally created to “keep the peace” between blacks and whites who were in coming into contact with one another more than ever as many sharecroppers and tenant farmers started moving to the cities to find employment in factories because of difficulties farming due to boll weevil infestation and drought. Jim Crow laws were created so there would be fewer problems between the races and less chance of violence. However, tension between the races didn’t ease up because of Jim Crow laws; it only got worse. The 1906 Atlanta Race Riot which lasted two days in which 26 people were killed and hundreds were injured is an example of this. Martial law was declared before the city once again became calm. Other examples of violence used at this time include lynching which was used to maintain the white supremacy of the Old South. Race Relations Model Writing – Par 3 During this period, disenfranchisement of black voters was common as law after law was passed to take away or diminish blacks’ ability to vote. In 1908, Georgia enacted a grandfather clause that stated that only those men whose fathers or grandfathers had been able to vote in 1867 were now eligible to vote. Yet others were made to take difficult literacy tests or had to pay a poll tax to be able to vote. Another way the black vote was diminished at this time was through the County Unit System. This system was in effect in Georgia until 1962 when it was finally declared unconstitutional because it unfairly allowed white, Southern Democrats in rural areas to decide the outcome of a primary election.
