10. There's more . . . . . .

In the South, if you were black, you had a hard time finding work because of racial discrimination.

So you were home and not working.

There were laws that allowed the police to arrest you FOR BEING HOME AND NOT WORKING. Got that? A crime for being black and being unemployed.

Well, soon you'd be convicted, on a chain gang, and . . . . . "working".
