What could have been done to end discrimination against nonwhites in the United States at the turn of the century?
I assume you mean about 1900.
I don't know.
What do you think?
I'm not certain. My textbook tells me to consider the attitudes of whites about nonwhites, the efforts of nonwhites to find jobs and security, and the competition for jobs.
The only thing that could have been done was for federal laws to outlaw discrimination. Instead, we had to wait until the 1960s for these Civil Rights laws to be passed by Congress.
