The South of the United States includes Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. The South was largely characterized by the white domination of blacks ever since the 17th century, and it wasn’t until after the WWII that the situation began to change slightly. The South was also characterized by the plantation slavery system, and almost the entire workforce was comprised of black people.
Fortunately, that is history and the South is now more diverse than it used to be. White people aren’t the only race present in these regions anymore and there is a significant percentage of African Americans, Asians, American Indians, and mixed races.
