America was never segregated
Like as most of us known quite well, Black Americans were pretty segregated…
- For much of the 20th century, it was a popular belief among many whites that the presence of blacks in a white neighborhood would bring down property values. So Blacks would hardly ever get loans in the nice areas of town, because it would lower the property value.
- There were also different drinking fountains for Blacks, bathrooms, etc… list goes on. That’s pretty damn segregated.
The Aboriginals in Canada were segregated in Canada as well with residential schools and reserves. Where Native kids were kidnapped, and assimilated into European American culture… these kids would be beat if they were caught speaking there own languages, and over 3000 kids died during Residential Schools.
