Treatment of Peoples of Color

1. How did Mexicans earn a living in the late 1800's, and where did they do this work?
  • Mexicans constructed rail lines in the Southwest. They also did some agriculture work. They worked in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma, becuase thats what the Southwest consists of.

2. Describe African - American life in the 1900's (where did they move to, what was their experience ?)
  • African-American life in the 1900's was rough because some moved to the northern area but there was still discrimination and in the Southern area they had Debt peonage which is when laborers had to be a slave in order to work off the debt to the employer
