He has used terror and force to make the people obey him; to worship him and carry out his command as any mistake would lead to a severe punishment. There has been a case of black Americans who were thought to be a group belonging to a lower class.
They had been discriminated in all possible ways; they were thought to be unequal and were mistreated. The schools were segregated; they were not given a better facility to teach the children. They could not possibly travel in the same transport as the white American. The black children and adults were caught and abused, injured, and many times publicly hanged. It was not at all safe for the blacks to live like respected citizen of the country. They wanted their rights back; they did not believe that they should be treated in such a way hence they fought back.
