Agricultural Adjustment Act gave authority to the government to try and raise
the prices by setting production quotas for major crops and paying farmers to
plant less. The bill successfully raised the prices of farms and income, which

benefitting, others were not. The money went to those who were property owning
but ignored those who worked on land owned by others. The policy encouraged the
eviction of thousands of poor tenants and sharecroppers. Many joined the rural
exodus to cities or moved to farms in the West Coast. The act eventually made
its way to the supreme court and was declared unconstitutional.

African Americans ability to receive full benefits of the New Deal in many
ways. One was by educational opportunities, blacks and whites were segregated
in schools and black schools were often in way worse conditions than of their
white peers. While Brown had won the battle against schools, only 12,000 of the
3,000,000 of the black children who attended school went to an integrated
school. Southern companies and factories also restricted black’s ability to advance
economically. Blacks still vote democrat because while Congress was very much
white and wanted segregation, FDR’s administration spoke of racial issues and
supported the African American efforts. This showed the blacks that while congress
was against them, the President and his administration were wanting to help
them.  While they were continued to be discriminated
against, because FDR’s efforts, blacks felt more connected to the Democratic
party.

job. This stigmatized blacks as recipients of unearned government assistance

Roosevelt
stressed the importance of the home in American and he aimed to help create as
many households as possible and was called “The American Dream”. FDR wanted to
turn that dream into a reality so, his administration worked hard to make sure
families would be protected from homes being foreclosed so he created the
Federal Housing Administration and the Home Owners Loan Corporation. The New

government was much more involved in peoples lives and their well being was being
accounted for and was being fought for.
