James Yang 759-766 Q4  1. How did the addition of African American soldiers both hurt and help the whites? Blacks had previously fought in the Civil War and Spanish American War, and they were mostly supportive of the Great War. Similarly, the drafting of the different races were unequal, in many areas black fathers being drafted over young white men. This was beneficial to the whites, who could easily avoid being drafted or risking their lives. They forced the black Americans into the war, and into separate segregated units. These additional black soldiers were also threatening to the whites, because the collected group of African Americans fed off each other’s anger and sometimes used violence to convey their annoyance. In a rampage in Houston, 17 whites were killed due to the tension that began to build up around the unfair treatment. Another threat to whites were all of the blacks that were not only upset about their treatment, but were also trained in the use of guns, foreshadowing future rampages. 2.
