ABSTRACT
The article reports on the social conditions of African Americans. The enactments of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 would drastically change the racial tenor of the country's immigration policies. Ironically, African Americans have paved the way for their own demise. In their militant struggle to end slavery they have engendered world sympathy, which rules out mass deportation as an option. White immigrants and especially the Irish, have had a detrimental, economic impact on African Americans.
