African-Americans in the Southern United States

Discussion about political representation of African-Americans in the southern United States.

This paper looks at the problem of under-representation of blacks in the southern part of the United States. The author of the paper explores many different theories, as well as the ideas of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, to explore the under representation of blacks politically.
“No longer can Blacks be told they must eat at a certain restaurant. Black and white children go to school together daily, they grow up on the same streets and they marry into each other’s race with increasing frequency. It is becoming the America that the founding fathers envisioned at the time the nation was created. One of the reasons America is known as the most powerful nation on earth is because of the strong and unshakeable political system that it has in place.”
