Examples of jim-crow in a Sentence

  1. John Mark:

    It's the most bald-faced attempt at disenfranchisement since Jim Crow.

  2. Chuck Collins:

    People say' slavery was so long ago' or' my family didn't own slaves.' But the key thing to understand is that the unpaid labor of millions -- and the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow laws, discrimination in mortgage lending and a race-based system of mass incarceration -- created uncompensated wealth for individuals and white society as a whole.

  3. Republican Rep. Jason Lewis:

    What the welfare state has done to the black community, a hundred years of racism could not do, a hundred years of racism could not break it up, it could not destroy black families. Jim Crow could not do it. But what dependency has done, is has caused unwanted pregnancy, illegitimacy. It has told young black males that they are dispensable, they don't need to hang around when mom needs support or whatever and it has destroyed -- and not just black communities, but any urban community, and so what you've got here is now they're addicted. Large swaths of Hispanic communities, black communities are addicted to these, these subsidies.

  4. Nikole Hannah-Jones:

    Reparations for African Americans are based on paying restitution for 250 years of slavery followed by 100 years of racial apartheid, which we often call Jim Crow. So it's really an attempt to address both the moral harm, and the crime that slavery and Jim Crow were, but also the wealth gap that was created by both of these institutions.

  5. Hakeem Jeffries:

    These are challenging times in the United States of America -- we have a hater in the White House, a birther in chief, the grand wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, one of the things that we've learned is that while Jim Crow may be dead, he still got some nieces and nephews that are alive and well.
