Jim crow laws are laws that promoted segration between blacks

and whites

When African Americans were considered to be citizens, a majority

of the white community did not want to accept them as so. They're

solution were laws called Jim Crow laws that could still allow them

to reject the black society (with ideas such as segragated water

fountains, busses, etc.) without technically breaking the law.
