Objective: The NAACP's principal objective is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minority group citizens of United States and eliminate race prejudice. The NAACP seeks to remove all barriers of racial discrimination through the democratic processes. Segregation: They wanted equality for housing, voting, education, and all other human rights as a race that they were denied.
American society: they wanted a racial quality, housing, & voting
Objective: dedicated to racial pride, economic self-sufficiency, and the formation of an independent black nation in Africa
Segregation: they preached voluntary segregation
American society: UNIA represent the largest mass movement in African-American history. They view American society as hopelessly corrupt and enmeshed in evil that there is no possibility of salvation from within.
The focus of the NAACPS and the UNIA is different mainly in the following ways. The NAACPS main focus is based on political, educational, social and equality. UNIA identifies a social, humanitarian, charitable educational institutional constructive and expansive society.
a. As a young African American living in the 1920’s I think the NAACP would be better, more positive and it will target more people whereas the UNIA sounds a bit discouraging but focused on more issues than the NAACP.
b. NAACP organization has the higher potential for bringing positive change because of its popularity in America. Being that they are trying to eliminate race prejudice and they wanted equality for housing, voting, education, and all other human rights as a race that they were denied.
I would have to agree with the NAACP. They wanted the same things I would have wanted if I were an African American living in the 1920’s. I wouldn’t want the views of the UNIA. The voluntary versus the entirety of the whole race, that makes no sense to me.
