No freedom for Black Americans!

Although Black Americans request was valid, White Americans began to bomb churches, use mobs and other violent approaches to prevent the gain of freedom.
White persons of power refused to grand Black Americans equal rights, and instead made laws preventing them from gaining any form of power. The Black community refused to be treated badly in the eyes of the system and potested.
