thank. god. well there's a man. in the. world war two eighty five ninety percent of the population this country lives in the south. was a lot of. black people would primarily live in the south because of slavery in the south was a rule agrarian farm economy oh there's a. way about. world war two years in a series of transformations that radically changing nature of black history in this country blacks for the first time are invited and now asked to work in america's
arsenal for democracy building those tanks building those planes building those ships. one thousand forty's one thousand seventies you see over four million african-americans leave the south and ways that have never never occurred before. and for new york head first ca go ahead for los angeles. for the first time they were integrated into the american worker economy they were earning enough to be lower middle class homeowners in l.a. and to establish if not exactly a very close similarity to the american dream. choose your language call if we can with oh if you're going to kill some of. the cubans the concerns get to. choose the opinions that immigrate to.

on out ron i'm a little. no way did not have the overt history with racism in one hand of the south there were no laws that said blacks had to ride on one part of the bus or no laws that blacks had to be in certain schools there were however extremely exclusive web of racially restrictive housing evidence except blacks in particular areas and out of other areas these covenants mandated the sale of real estate along racial lines in an effort to keep traditionally white neighborhoods free of non desirable homes sometimes not desirable men latino sometimes not desirable men do sometimes not disarmament asian but it always meant black and so those racially restrictive covenants which didn't disappear into the late forty's and early fifty's
essentially kept blacks circumscribed in a very narrow portion of the l.a. county region. like people were forced to live on top of each other because it just wasn't possible to live where you chose even though you might have been able to afford it. in. south philly residents responded by transforming their a lot of territory into a thriving cultural hub and central avenue developing into a sort of harlem west. west coast best jazz clubs dozens of black businesses lining the street people dressed in their sunday best on the weekends a period during which the most affluent and the forest blacks live essentially side by side. and then with will more to spend. more time economy adapted itself to
a lean automotive industry with major corporations like g.m. chrysler ford good you and firestone all established in fact in south los angeles. and we're going to. factory you got benefits you got my house you could buy a car you could raise a family you could live a working class or lower middle class life. it was a moment of unprecedented black prosperity in which the two jacks three of black america was on the rise people were getting jobs were buying homes were buying cars sending their kids to colleges was a moment of real optimism. in the late one nine hundred fifty s. you begin to get the first. wave of what came to be called the industrialization.
the american economy is changing we're moving from one of those really cami to an economy based on service based on information rooted in technology that is it's high skilled high wage high training on one very low skilled sweatshop labor another. class find that their skills don't fit into either those demands. they don't have the education or the skill or the training because of historic discrimination to work in aerospace. on the other hand they don't feel any desire or need to go into the low skilled service sector jobs like hotel cleaning like sweat shop work downtown l.a. because they don't perceive that as jobs that american citizens should have. not talking about people where the rear we're talking about people with jobs if you have a job you are dependent on that job so when that factory closes you are in essence
asked out. by the late sixty's you see those plants beginning to disappear when they disappear there is virtually nothing left in their wake. and so it leaves a gaping hole in the economy of the region. with consequences that are just enormous. generationally in america is supposed to be about the american dream people are supposed to move up as opposed to elevate. we're talking about a situation where actuality it whenever reverse the children over time began to do worse than their parents. in one nine hundred
seventy five the los angeles times reporters into the streets to assess progress in the city's black communities ten years after the watts rebellion. the fearful lived behind protective bars and double locks high schools are graduating functional illiterates. some black people have got businesses some professionals have got into significant jobs but if you talk about the masses of that guy who was in trouble in one thousand and sixty five it is more difficult now. the black in the ghetto gold survive. on.
to. make. them to commit to going to. have a katrina when i have been going to. a refugee isn't going to call it that would displace like most. of the accomplishing over the it might not be acceptable in britain but however somewhat occurs every two or three hours in my community. in the south central community basically which is in peel broken down business if you have any business and. take a walk down the boulevard from the french out of our money and you tell me the opportunities that are available low income housing five or six charges gang violence crack. introduction of crack cocaine onto the streets of l.a. in one nine hundred eighty one proved to be
a major tipping point for an already vulnerable to. cocaine came a toy it broke up a lot of you know a lot of people just thought crack was the way out you know what i. think of what they keep you know what i'm saying that will broke a lot of homes if that crack would never came party still have nice the homes and nice live families you know but when i came there like oh everything before i would let me ask you when did you have a conventional childhood ilog dysfunctional ass family in the south of us. to be out here they dos is ninety three i was raised out of that he. had to be a man a mom and take care my mom is too. far from my low but this is said. i do it by for little brothers and sisters do it you don't. let us go out alone look at me .
i grew up in a home where my mother worked two jobs but had three people so you can imagine we were on supervised sold the business side of the home. she was too busy making a living. then to love me. even though she tried and did the best that she could it was not a. lot of black youth in the neighborhood just not the opposite way so i went to gangs because i didn't come out last night i'm thinking they had some hand getting your books then stayed on but if everybody did a lot of things would have been different but that wasn't the case. the common thread throughout all of these conversations throughout our communities
things to be. part of most part the absence of a male figure. in the home. when there is no male influence. on them from. then everything is going to be out of whack the people that told me told me wrong tell me how to be all. it's been tough you want is not be a man but his fight to me by somebody or goes to somebody does a way to tell me been a man. have a soap culture of a young black man pretending to be men back killing each other. about standing up in a brothel amana. but they're misguided . now days the fathers are the
black men my age are the day and i'm in jail and one of the problems we have is. if they're going to try to arrest the problem that means they're putting all the black men in jail. in two thousand and three bureau of justice report reveals that twenty eight percent african-american men more than one in four be jailed or sent to prison in the last. week of engaged in this country and an absolutely historically unprecedented experiment in a mass in prison. we now have and imprisonment plague that is six to seven times higher than it has ever been before and our history is suffocation coming in a cafe christian or stuck in a thing in two thousand and seven four years governor announced plans to spend
seven point four billion dollars to build forty thousand new prison bad faith with the terminator but. look at the population of the people in the penitentiary particularly from the one nine hundred eighty s. going forward. black men are disproportionately represented that's the new feel right you can't place you. would need to like. it. to put. you in the sense of. what this means is we are breaking even the possibility of there will be intact families with a mother and a father raising a child together. because we are sending the men off to prison an unprecedented rapes usually for nonviolent offenses that. would.
even with time served so many of those determined to start a new life find little freedom in their lives. i go to get a job i'm working for xerox sent an application and they found out i was on parole and i lost my job i used to be jealous somehow i have going to work in. this is my wife on a stupid balmy grew up with me bill me absolute kids and she would go out thousand go to work and i would be mad at her because she could go to work and i couldn't help. i'll be mad because she's paying the bills and i can better deal there's never no cycle to get us out of this it's just a cycle to get us back into it so of course people are going to behave in ways that are anti-social if we don't let them behave in pro-social writers.
