High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Racial tension in Omaha,
Nebraska occurred mostly because of the city's volatile mixture of
high numbers of new immigrants from southern and eastern Europe and
African-American migrants from the Deep South. While racial
discrimination existed at several levels, the violent outbreaks
were within working classes. Irish Americans, the largest and
earliest immigrant group in the 19th century, established the first
neighborhoods in South Omaha. All were attracted by new industrial
jobs and most were from rural areas. There was competition among
ethnic Irish, newer European immigrants, and African-American
migrants from the South, for industrial jobs and housing. They all
had difficulty adjusting to industrial demands, which were
unmitigated by organized labor in the early years. Some of the
early labor organizing resulted in increasing tensions between
groups, as later arrivals to the city were used as strikebreakers.
