The Help: Bathroom Segregation
  • History → American History → Segregation

Minnie Jackson, an African-American maid, is the brunt of a dehumanizing conversation by the white families that employ her and her peers. One of the women, Hilly, refuses to use the bathroom because it has been used by a black maid. She suggests that the maid use an outhouse because "they carry different diseases." Hilly exacerbates the situation by telling her friends that she is pushing for an initiative to mandate that every white home has a separate bathroom for the colored folk.
