Write one page that addresses the following question: During the Jim Crow era
and during the Civil Rights movement, African-Americans and people of color
were discriminated against. But they were and are not the only ones
discriminated against. Women, gays and lesbians, and Muslims (they are
discriminated as “terrorists”) are discriminated against today, and in many
cases, historically. Choose one of these groups (or select your own) and
compare this group to African-Americans during the Civil Rights/Jim Crow era.
Who had/has it “worse”? Use evidence to support your answer.
