In the United States, strong anti-Irish sentiment began in the late 1840’s, when the great Irish famine caused many to emigrate to the United States, and continued into the 20th century. Anti-Catholic prejudice was present in the presidential election of 1960, but did not prevent John F. Kennedy, a Catholic, from being elected. Credit: unknown

Jim Crow laws mandating the separation of the races in practically every aspect of public life were systematically instituted in the South beginning in the 1890s. Water fountains, restaurants, theaters, restrooms, stores, buses, trains, workplaces, and other public facilities were typically designated with “White Only” and “Colored” signs. The Lonestar Restaurant Association based in Dallas distributed this sign to its members to hang in the windows of their restaurants, where American Indians, Mexicans, and African Americans were subjected to Jim Crow laws and racial discrimination. These types of laws existed until the 1960s. https://www.loc.gov/exhibits/civil-rights-act/segregation-era.html
