Sorry, we don't got integrated bathrooms here. You're gonna have to go out back. There' s no room for you freedman here.
Ew! I hate these Jim Crow Laws! Segregation is so unfair!
Sir, I fell and I think I broke my arm. Could you check it out for me?
I'm sorry, the black nurse isn't available, so you're gonna have to go somewhere else. It's getting late, better leave before you get lynched
In this scene, the freedman is unable to use the bathroom because of the "white only sign" and is asked to leave because of his skin color. After the Civil War ended and Reconstruction started, the 13th amendment was passed giving blacks freedom, which many Southerners were upset and angry about. Once blacks started to get more freedom, many southerners got angry and in the South, and laws like Black Codes and Jim Crow Laws were passed, making blacks less equal.
When the Freedman is called to go outside, he sees that the colored bathroom is really awful and way less equal then the white bathroom. When the Jim Crow laws were made, there were even more ways to make blacks less equal to whites. Some of those things were Literacy Tests, poll taxes and Grandfather Clauses, but there were also things to give blacks more equality, like the 14th and 15th amendment.
In this scene, the freedman is hurt, but the doctor wont treat him. The reason he wont treat him is because there is no black nurse, and in the South, blacks would not get treated without a black nurse. Also, the white doctor warns the black to leave before he gets "lynched". In the time of Reconstruction, many secret societies like the Ku Klux Klan
