How was German American racism in America during World War 1?
During the years 1619-1865 how successful was North America in liberating from racism and slavery?
Between 1619 and 1865 (or, between the first formal appearance of slaves in North America and the final conquest of the slave-holding American South, including follow-up legislation for emancipation), North America was very successful in its liberation-efforts regarding slavery; however, it was profoundly unsuccessful in respect to eradicating racism. By the end of 1865, slavery as an official institution disappeared in North America. Racism, unfortunately, would live on in many different ways in both the North and the South of America.

Why did the American government flood the ghetto with drugs?
Did Germans face racism segregation or prejudice when they immigrated to the US?
Germans in America There have been Germans in America - and Americans of German origin - for a very long time and since about the 1690's (when my descendants arrived with their entire village from southern Germany) in quite large numbers, too. There were problems in both World Wars, but in general it's my impression that the Germans and Americans of German origin have been and are respected in America. Obviously, the US is a very long way from Germany; not that many Americans read or speak German, and many of the ideas prevalent in America about Germany may be out of date. Answer: After World War II, immigrant Germans and also some German speaking Amish did face some racism, due to their easily identified German accents. Most of the prejudice has died down, but there are still some people in America who identify Germans as Nazis. Racism is still there, there has been many times where you will hear the words "Nazi!" through the halls and it will be directed at a German. People have drawn swastikas (spl?) on other peoples backpacks. Having blonde hair and light colored eyes is something that shouldn't be delclared as "looking like a Nazi."
