2) In his essay "The Ethics of Living Jim Crow," Richard Wright describes his experiences as a young man learning about the power system of the South. How would you describe this system: who has the power? How do they hold on to it? How do people without power respond and resist? What forms of resistance do you think would be effective in this system?

In the Ethics of Living Jim Crow" Richard Wright tells about his experiences.At the time the government wasnt really democratic government.The people who had the power in the country during this time, are the white folk. the way they are able to contain thtere power is by enslaving black folks with theses ridicoulos socal rules; that prevents them from being treated as equals.i think black folks would do good in resisting all these social rules,if they were more violent and more demananding.
