Maids were amongst the likes of slaves in the 1950’s. Racial tensions were high and discrimination was fluttering. This is depicted in the novel The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Stockett describes the lives of African Americans during the 1950’s and 1960’s. There were many racist acts toward African Americans especially towards Minny and Aibileen two black women working as maids in the novel. The story takes place in Jackson Mississippi where a young white woman named Skeeter lived for most her life. Skeeter fought for Civil Rights secretly. She helped the maids by trying to publish a book about their lives as maids and how they are treated. This book is a great illustration of how African Americans lived back in the 1960’s. During the 1950's and 1960's African Americans never seem to be equal with the white society due to the color of their skin, and their different personalities. Blacks have been discriminated against for generations and separated from whites by law. Segregation has oppressed blacks for years. For example there are different public bathrooms for colored and for whites. There was water fountains for black and only colored schools. There were laws prohibiting blacks from haves certain rights which lead to civil rights movement’s that lead to violence and chaos. African Americans are threatened by groups if they don't follow the law or rules. In the book The Help by Kathryn Stockett, she shows how racism and discrimination destroys the chance of the American dream for African American.

Maids were amongst the likes of slaves in the 1950’s. Racial tensions were high and discrimination was fluttering. This is depicted in the novel The Help by Kathryn Stockett.

During the 1950's and 1960's African Americans never seem to be equal with the white society due to the color of their skin, and their different personalities. Blacks have been discriminated against for generations and separated from whites by law. Segregation has oppressed blacks for years. For example there are different public bathrooms for colored and for whites. There was water fountains for black and only colored schools. There were laws prohibiting blacks from haves certain rights which lead to civil rights movement’s that lead to violence and chaos. African Americans are threatened by groups if they don't follow the law or rules. In the book The Help by Kathryn Stockett, she shows how racism and discrimination destroys the chance of the American dream for African American. Paragraph 1 Racism African Americans have been segregated for generations ever since 1869. From the time of slavery, Blacks have been put to work and when they finally earned their freedom they felt discriminated for their personality and color. Dealing with threats and segregation the African American society never seemed to change. In the African American society separating blacks from the white community was not a law but was preferred by white population. “the segregation of public education in both the north and south was not firmly fixed in law…those in the north were constrained by custom and racism from sending their children to white schools” (School Segregation). This means that African American families had to move and find education in a different location in the community or have their children excluded from school permanently. Allowing the black communities to vote for what they like was a improvement in the lives of all African Americans during the 19th century. The passage of the Fourteenth Amendment and Fifteenth Amendment made African Americans citizens and recognized that black men had the right to vote, but a backlash from white Southerners, who worked diligently to intimidate blacks with threats of violence and undermine any legal gains blacks made during this period"(African Americans in U.S. history). A Group like the Ku Klux Klan worked deliberately to make sure only a limited number African Americans were allowed to express there rights. The group grew rapidly throughout the years and over four million members arise making African American lives more difficult and dangerous. "The different KKK organizations that exist today have in common a belief in the inequality and separate interests of races and a desire to promote what they see as the interests of the white race"(Civil Rights Movement). The KKK use methods of hate and violence to alert all types of minorities. During the 1950's and 1960's these groups held Cilvil Right Movements and African Americans from being able to live a peaceful life. In the novel The Help, by Kathryn Stockett describes the lives of African americans during the 19th century and the things they went though fighting for there rights. Stockett shows how white characters in the book think there superior,smarter and over all better then African americans. Second Paragraph Racism In the book The Help a white women named Hilly Holbrook tries passing a law allowing every white home in Jackson Mississippi to have an extra bathroom for the colored men and women working in them. Hilly is undertaking this because she assumes colored people are revolting and that if they use their personal bathrooms they could contact a disease. Hilly shows her distaste with blacks by saying "All these houses they're building without maid's quarters? It's just plain dangerous. Everybody knows they carry different kinds of diseases then we do"(Stockett 10). What the characters agreed on was a disrespectful act towards black people. The whites were selfish and conspicuous towards the blacks that weren't even given enough credit for the things they've done. White people wont want anything to do black people "no colored barber shall serve as a barber to white women or girls" (Stockett 202). While in the library Skeeter picks up a Jim Crow Law book and discover a law white people don't think that blacks are as good as white and for that reason they don't want to improve there business by buying a hair cut. Throughout Skeeter research their was another thing she discovered "Books shall not be interchangeable between the white and colored schools, but shall continue to be used by the race first using them" (Stockett 202). This shows how little white's thought of black people. They think that they were to stupid to learn and that white people were smarter and more superior then them so they should be the ones allowed to read and learn. In the book The Help Stockett describes how the white society destroys the american dream of African Americans by racism and discrimination. Third Paragraph Decimation In the 1950's and throughout the 1960's the modern Civil Rights Movement was a time period where social activism aimed at achieving a social economic political equality for African Americans. Aggressive nonviolent bus boycott is a demonstration of the power the community organized by the role of people playing in the fighting for freedom that was sparked by a famous African American Rosa Parks. "Rosa Parks's refusal to give up her seat for a white passenger, the bus boycott engaged all of Montgomery's African American community in a nonviolent, mass protest of Jim Crow segregation that spanned 381 days, financially crippling the Montgomery City Lines." Rosa Parks sometimes called the mother of Civil Rights Movement was a great African American because of her bravery for not allowing a white man to take her set. The act of her resistance light up a boycott which also lead to other boycotting tactic's for example sit-in. Nonviolent tactics like sit-in were commonly used. They started from student in North Carolina in a white segregated lunch counter. "Sit-ins established many of the philosophical positions and tactics that would underscore the moment. Many activists who would go on to play leading roles in the civil rights moment were first involved in sit-ins." Groups used this method anywhere in a legal matter allowing African Americans to fight for there rights. The sit-in were used repetitively during the 1950's to challenge segregation. In Woolworth's Carolina, four student demonstrated this method precisely. "having made purchases in the store, the four sat at the lunch counter and asked for service. When they refused, they remained at the lunch counter until the store closed." Local protest had pervious sit-ins making connection with other local movements more sit-in participance gathered. With a network of young activist from colleges, churches, and other civil right groups of color in the south the four connected with a Floyd McKissick a powerful youth councilor leader. By the end of the first week of protesting over 400 sit-in students were engaged in the with the Greensboro. At this moment white mobs and threats were joining to harass the colored protesters. At this moment the organized members of the groups were harmed by whites and officers of the state were accusing the colored protesters of trespassing and began arresting them. This protests gave African Americans a choice to fight for their rights without being discriminated against the sit-in method improved fierily. In The Help, Stockett describes the everyday life of a African American and the discrimination they go through. In the book Minny and Abileen were riding the bus with other colored passengers as the bus driver turned to next corner of the street he stopped "colored people off, last stop for you,' he holler in the rearview. 'White people lemme know where y'all need to get to. I'll get you as close as I can" (Stockett 227). The colored passengers weren't allowed to go further because they have reached their dead line of how far they are allowed to proceed riding the bus. For the White passengers they were allowed not only able to maintain more of the bus space but were allowed to travel at any locations the bus was taking them. After the bus situation throughout the book Minny gets beaten by her husband "Them doctors ain't gone work on no colored person, Miss Celia" (Sotckett 359). Africans Americans are better off not going to the doctors because of there racial dislike of blacks so for the reason they wont help Minny even if she decided to go to one. This demonstrated the hard ships of the African American life's not being able to travel and have insurance for any possible sicuation. Separations with schools was a matter of color as well "Miss. Taylor says kids that are colored can't go to my school cause they're not smart enough" (Stockett 461) This shows the unequally jackson mississippi had and how separate they keep the colored community away from them. Discrimination was a large issue and Skeeter tries to change that by publishing a book about it hopping it could change the lives of those who lived in jackson mississippi.
its not competely edited yet hah
You could end saying: Though many African Americans prevailed throughout the years, discrimination continues to be a major issue. Kathryn Stockett was a brave woman to take on the pressure of making people see both sides of the spectrum in her book. IT will take more than just "The Help" of a novel to end the hauting of discrimination...Soory this is the best I came up with off the dome haha.
hahaha this bro I appreciate it but i kind of was it at least a line longer my teacher wants it half a page..
lemme try to add on
hmm was else should i mention?
by using the character in the book?
Kathryn Stockett was a brave woman to take on the pressure of making people see both sides of the spectrum in her book. Society is now out of a time were prejudice is obvious. It lurks silently until it strikes the world with horror. Courageous authors like Stockett now come a dime a dozen and barely speak up for the indiscretion of racial tension. It will take more than just "The Help" of a novel to end the haunting of discrimination.
Personally I believe you should just talk about the book in a whole and the way it is connected to society now. Sorry I couldn't be more help (no pun intended)
This book is connected to society by her using characters and the things that were happening during the time the book was taking place was real and people never understood that this was happening and never thought of what the other person prespective was. its hard to explain haha
the reason she wrote this book was to show the society that this was happening at the time at jackson and that it was unjustice becuase they were living in the land of the free and they werent free.
trying to dig deeper haha
in the book it was demonstrating that black and white weren't as different as whites thought and Skeeter one of the main characters that is white realizes that by her colored main Constantine tries to change things.
My opinion would be better if I read the book or watched the movie lol. Just so I could be better at answering this.
theres a movie haha
its free haha
