even after the war,the south still treated negro,s as not equal to their poor white trash, it took one of the south,s good democrats (LBJ) to make it right. and still there are places in the south a negro doesn,t want to be caught after dark. before the war the negro was good enough to work,feed,raise and have babies by their white masters, after the war they could not eat,go to school,ride in the front of the bus or swin in the same pools as whites. if the war was not about slavery,why all the hatred of negro,s, after all they didn,t start the war. eastbank.
