As African Americans fought for equality, government officials were concerned that racial discrimination posed an obstacle to the campaign to enlist allies in large parts of the world. Therefore, the cold war had a slight impact on domestic freedom and equal rights, although there were many other factors. One consequence of this long war was that the Berlin Wall was tore down. President Reagan challenged Soviet leader Gorbachev to tear down the wall. At First, Gorbachev didn’t act on this, but not long after the East German Communist Party announced that the citizens there would be free to leave the country, and within hours Germans from both sides were smashing down the wall. One of the many consequence were the established agreements such as the Limited Test Ban Treaty to stop nuclear tests, the SALT Ⅰ Treaty that said that each nation was restricted to developing and deploying two antiballistic missile systems, a SALT Ⅱ Treaty was made to prolong the first one, and the Intermediate-Nuclear Forces Treaty and the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty were some more of the outcomes from the cold war between the United States and Soviet leaders. One last consequence was that communism died and the Soviet Union went through a rough patch after the war and had to regain power. The United States found itself standing alone as the only superpower in the world. The cold war was over and the United States had won. Bibliography Winkler, Allan M.
