Segregation was a way of life and "woe is me" if you tried to upset the applecart. Separate water fountains in public places, separate schools. Most businesses had a separate entrance for "coloreds". If you met one on the sidewalk they either stepped off or crossed the street. Public transportation had separate seating and theaters were the same. In other words the blacks were lower echelon. I remember my uncle talking about cotton harvesting which they did commercially and went into Tx, Az and the like. 8 men to a car, a crew! My dad mentioned something to the effect that it must have crowded. My uncle said it wasn't to bad the blacks laid on the floor and were foot-rest for the rest.
I do not know when this was written it could be 10 yrs ago or 10 minutes but let us read it for what it is worth!
I can find nothing for or against this letter, if it is true or false. This man tells it the way it is/was for him.
