Desire for Economic and Sexual Exploitation Back of Southern Prejudice

Title

Desire for Economic and Sexual Exploitation Back of Southern Prejudice

Subject

Jim Crow laws, Chamber of Commerce

Description

This article seems advanced in its psychological analysis that the African American man of the time was influenced by the racial inferiority that society exhibits. This inferiority produces an "odd color psychology" where the black man believes that the white man is doing him a favor by hiring him as opposed to asking for fair wages. So that, in turn, means that the black man gets paid less because society makes him think that that's what he deserves.
