Uh, no. Not what I meant nor really said, exactly. But, I can see where that would be interpreted as such. I mean, sure, life was a grand old party for a few years during reconstruction, but it was so short-lived, I don't really see how that would count. For all intents and purposes, Blacks went from being enslaved to being forced to live in apartheid.
