ps, during and after World War I, many southerners went north because there were few men to work in many jobs...because they (white men) were sent to fight in Europe. It was at this time...many southern black went north thinking that it might be better than the 'not much changed South'. Poor white as well as poor black tenant-farmers went north, both hoping to improve their lives...
.
Unfortunately, it lasted for only a few years as the war ended and soldiers began returning home...to their jobs. Not only were the white soldiers returning...many southern whites who brought the catalyst of racism north. Together, this began the period of the race riots between 1920-30.
.
What history fails to tell us is that 'white people' were the rioters and assaulted and murdered many blacks at this time. The other myth is that racism was in the south...no,many of the lynchings and murders took place up north. Did you know that the KKK began in the northern states?
