From the 1880s into the 1960s, a majority of American states enforced segregation through "Jim Crow" laws (so called after a black character in minstrel shows). From Delaware to California, and from North Dakota to Texas, many states (and cities, too) could impose legal punishments on people for consorting with members of another race. The most common types of laws forbade intermarriage and ordered business owners and public institutions to keep their black and white clientele separated.

Examples of Jim Crow Laws

Nurses: No person or corporation shall require any white female nurse to nurse in wards or rooms in hospitals, either public or private, in which ***** men are placed. (Alabama)

Buses: All passenger stations in this state operated by any motor transportation company shall have separate waiting rooms or space and separate ticket windows for white and colored races. (Alabama)

Railroads: The conductor of each passenger train is authorized and required to assign each passenger to the car or the division of the car, when it is divided by a partition, designated for the race to which such passenger belongs. (Alabama)

Restaurants: It shall be unlawful to conduct a restaurant or other place for the serving of food in the city, at which white and colored people are served in the same room, unless such white and colored persons are effectively separated by a solid partition extending from the floor upward to a distance of seven feet or higher, and unless a separate entrance from the street is provided for each compartment.

Pool and Billiard Rooms: It shall be unlawful for a ***** and white person to play together or in company with each other at any game of pool or billiards. (Alabama)

Toilet Facilities, Male: Every employer of white or ***** males shall provide for such white or ***** males reasonably accessible and separate toilet facilities. (Alabama)

Intermarriage: The marriage of a person of Caucasian blood with a *****, Mongolian, Malay, or Hindu shall be null and void. (Arizona)

Intermarriage: All marriages between a white person and a ***** person or between a white person and a person of ***** descent to the fourth generation inclusive, are hereby forever prohibited. (Florida)

Cohabitation: Any ***** man and white women, or any white man and ***** woman, who are not married to each other, who shall habitually live in and occupy in the nighttime the same room shall each be punished by imprisonment not exceeding twelve (12) months, or by fine not exceeding five hundred ($500.00) dollars. (Florida)

Education: The schools for white children and the schools for ***** children shall be conducted separately. (Florida)

Juvenile Delinquents: There shall be separate buildings, not nearer than one fourth mile from each other, one for white boys and one for ***** boys. White boys and ***** boys shall not, in any manner, be associated together or worked together. (Florida)

Mental Hospitals: The Board of Control shall see that proper and distinct apartments are arranged for said patients, so that in no case shall Negroes and white persons be together. (Georgia)

Intermarriage: It shall be unlawful for a white person to marry anyone except a white person. Any marriage in violation of this section shall be void. (Georgia)

Barbers: No colored barber shall serve as a barber [to] white women or girls. (Georgia)

Burial: The officer in charge shall not bury, or allow to be buried, any colored persons upon ground set apart or used for the burial of white persons. (Georgia)

Restaurants: All persons licensed to conduct a restaurant, shall serve either white people exclusively or colored people exclusively and shall not sell to the two races within the same room or serve the two races anywhere under the same license. (Georgia)

Amateur Baseball: IT shall be unlawful for any amateur white baseball team to play baseball on any vacant lot or baseball diamond within two blocks of a playground devoted to the ***** race, and it shall be unlawful for any amateur colored baseball team to play baseball in any vacant lot or baseball diamond within two blocks of any playground devoted to the white race.

whining about your broken
heart
and your loser state of mind
for having *** with me
withing hours meeting me for the first time.

on this site.

new year's plans
Lost in shadows Dec 2013
going to rise up early
with lady or three in my king sized bed.
heading for the mall
seeking lonely cute ladies.
throw out a few compliments
women buy it
they believe you sincere.
women have many big fears
grey hair
wrinkles and crows feet
being alone
growing old alone
getting fat
not getting dates
dying spinsters.
i will play on what makes them happy
i will get a woman to spend new year's eve
with me and all night.
easy when you built from work outs
easy when you got a face women like
easy telling women what they want to hear
throw out some lies
tell them they pretty
tell them you love them
tell them anything nice
feed their egos
I say their pretty
i pour wine and they sip
my lying gets kisses tasting of wine.
women believe me because
I look sincere when it lie.
my business suit
nice car
expensive watch
gets them in my car
gets me in their house
gets me in the house when husbands are away
gets me a squeeze of a breast or knee
gets me body kisses
gets me body shots
gets me to any base i want.
easy getting a date on new year's eve
or any day of the year
i lie
they buy it
i get what i want
what i want is ***
what i love is *** and more ***
*** addict
i don't want help
easy getting fixes for my habit
women will be women
pathetic
desperate for attention
hitching a ride
on a gravy train for security
i play to that lie they want to hear.
no security with me
it's playing to what they want
i get my fix of ***
then on to the next
lonely woman
and the next.
no crime
between
consenting adults.
one thinking it's the real
one knowing he
is in it just for ***.

affects of you on me
Lost in shadows Dec 2013
none
zero
nada
nothing
there is no feelings
in my heart
it was
just ***.
wont change
even if i give in and
have *** with you again.
don't call me saying you hate me
do you matter to me?
no!
you were a one night stand
get that through you head and stop calling.
you call one more time
i turn off phone.
why do women go nuts
thinking what's between their legs
is made of magic
or made of something
we can't live without
once we had what's between your legs?
get over it
get help
do not call.
get over me
no repeats
it was bad ***
do not want anymore
of what you offering.

Lost in shadows Dec 2013

we had *** no big deal

it was ***
get over it and me

we are not meant to be
get over me now
Lost in shadows Dec 2013
we met
we had ***
it was not great
build up was better than the act.
you bled
you stopped crying
we tried *** again but it hurt you.
last shot
tried holding you
was not feeling you sorry
wish it had worked
was not in the cards for us
if it had worked
new years day would be great.
you went home
you called me once
you asked if I loved you.
how can I love you?
we are strangers
we met
we had bad ***
how can I love you it was only ***?
how could I know
how could I know you were untouched?
****** dancing
rubbing your hot *** against me
you me kissing
at the bar
you throwing back
gin and tonics like a pro
we got drunk
we staggered out to parking lot
it was dark
I felt you up and down
you want me I wanted you
we had *** and it was only ***
with no feelings.
you hung up
end of that ****
new day
new year in three days.
I feel validated
validated for taking your virginity.
you offered
and i willingly took your offering.
legs spread
bad *** with you
you thought it was love
was not for me
you saying take me
do i feel guilt?
no way!!!

— The End —
