The "white" facilites.
The racial tension was more pronounced in the South - but it was not universal. The Irish were treated in substandard ways when they began immigrating en masse, as were a number of immigrant groups - over time - in America (Italians, Mexicans, East Europeans) but the African-American treatment was distinctively unique. It was by no means in the South alone, but the southern experience was far more open. Northern prejudice was very strong as well, but more subtle - and there had been many slaves in Maryland, New York, etc. pre-Civil War as well. This has changed tremendously in modern America. Prejudice is not gone, but ignorance is less and tolerance far better.
American Indians are and were treated far worse than any group in this country, in that everything was taken from them - freedom, family, food source, faith - complete nations were wiped out by advancing white Europeans, and no expense was spared in lives, or dollars, to accomplish the goal. At one time over 1/4 of the U.S. military was in pursuit of Geronimo, Apache chief - and he was leading a band of 26 people at his surrender. The Seminole were pursued in Florida at the cost of over $50 Million (1830s dollars) and 1500 soldier's lives. These were wars of attrition and a waste of life on all sides. See Wounded Knee, Sand Creek, Horseshoe Bend, Trail of Tears, the list is endless and a national shame.
