25 What problems faced black Americans who moved north in the 1920s and 1930s? 5 MARKS (2009)

26 Source A is by a Senator from Alabama in He is explaining why he wanted immigration controls. As soon as the immigrants step off the decks of their ships our problem has begun – Bolshevism,red anarchy, crooks and kidnappers. Thousands come here who never take the oath to support our Constitution and to become citizens of the United States. They do not respect what our flag represents. They pay allegiance to some other country and flag while they live upon the benefits of our own. They are of no service whatever to our people. They constitute a menace and a danger to us every day. Source B is a description by Robert Coughlan of the growth of support for the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s. It may be asked why, then, did the town take so enthusiastically to the Klan? Many old stock Americans believed they were in danger of being overrun. The “foreigners were ruining our country”; and so anything “foreign” was “un-American” and a menace. Cars were draped with the American flag and some carried homemade signs with Klan slogans such as “America for the Americans”. How far do Sources A and B agree about American attitudes to immigrants in the 1920s?4 marks
