How Jim Crow Practiced Paper Genocide Against Native American Indians


Jim Crow laws were a set of oppressive laws that reclassified Native American Indians into the category of Colored.

Jim Crow reached their greatest influence during the decades of 1910, 1920, and 1930.

Among them were hypodescent laws, defining as black anyone with suspected black ancestry, or even those with a very small portion of black ancestry. Tennessee adopted such a "one-drop" statute in 1910, and Louisiana soon followed. Then Texas and Arkansas in 1911, Mississippi in 1917, North Carolina in 1923.
