Something similar to Jim Crow can be recognized in multiple ways,Do you know how many countries you are talking about? Slavery aside there has always been a difference between the Anglosphere and Latin America.It really was not a nightmare of abuse and cruelty. A black ship on the first ship to Jamestown became a wealthy slave owner himself. Early on especially it was common to free slaves after a number of years. After the cotton gin was when the need for more slaves on larger plantations became the norm. For the first 100 plus years 1/2 to 2/3rds of all Europeans that came to to the were indentured servants.In 1619, the Dutch introduced the first captured Africans to America, planting the seeds of a slavery system that evolved into a nightmare of abuse and cruelty that would ultimately divide the nation.
The Caribbean Sugar plantations slaves had short life spans, nothing like the USA/Colonies. Those were corporate like plantations.
I’m interested in the difference between Latin America and the United States, and what came after the abolitions.
Am I right in saying Jim Crow did not apply to Latin America? No one seems to know.
-You can actually write it down on paper, make it a law and practice it.
-Not write it down but still practice it in various forms.
-Write it down and don't practice it.
There was likely various forms of discrimination all over Latin America, some countries have high mixed race populations, some heavy with natives, some mostly black, some mostly white, some can be regional. Large countries like Brazil and Mexico had lots of emigrates from all over, not just Iberia, and even the The Levant after WWl.
