BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : AFRICAN AMERICAN AND VETERAN OF WARS GONE PAST AND CURRENT :
Following the Second World War the G.I. Bill of Rights greatly expanded the population of African American attending college and graduate school forming a crack in wall of the prevailing Social Climate that existed in the United States after the World War 11 one in which Racism was a prominent factor African American did not Benefit from the provision of the G.I. Bill as much as there White counterpart. Though the Bill provided on a level playing field than the one Blacks faced during Reconstruction. Representative John Ranking an Economic Liberal who was an avid Segregationist and Racist sponsored the Bill in the United States House of Representative. All though the Law did not specially advocate discrimination, the Social Climate of the time dictated that the law would be interpreted differently for Blacks than for White.
