You can't vote without paying the poll tax or taking the literacy test
There's not even a line here!
We should not have to be segraegated like this.
Before the Civil Righs Act was passed the Jim Crow Laws where very radical for colored people. They seperated blacks and whites everywhere but the facilties where never equal just like Im trying to show above.
The 15th amendment allowed all men to vote. Poll taxes where made to prevent blacks from voting since they could rarley afford the price. They would also take a test about the constitution. Black men did not like this.
Basically everything was sepearted from colored and white people. If they broke these rules they would be punished so they where scared to enter places for whites only. Some where punished with a lynching if they did soemthing very bad.
