How were minorities (blacks, mexicans, and native americans) affected by the war?
blacks- treated more fairly and given more positions in the armed forces, navy, etc. but there was still segregation. More blacks hired caused strikes and riots.
mexicans- flocked north in search of work and experienced rising living standards. a larger proportion served in the armed forces.
native americans- served in the armed forces and thousands left to work in defense industries all over the country
