They believed that america\ s laissez-faire economic system provided equal opportunity for white americans, but not for non-white minorities.-the populists did not believe that an unbridled laissez-faire economic system provided equal opportunities to either african americans or most caucasians. they viewed both the democratic and republican parties as servants of the monopolists and finance capitalists, and they saw themselves as representatives of small farmers and agricultural workers, as well as factory workers. although they started out as advocates of racial equality, by the 1890s, populist leaders were in adamant support of efforts to disenfranchise african americans and of laws mandating racial segregation.
