The division between whites and blacks was clearly prevalent, with whites faring on the better side of the spectrum. Essentially, the United States of America was a racially discriminatory society reinforced by its racist laws. Therefore, Langston Hughes took the initiative to speak his mind via poetry, and this piece shows that.
