    Why did it take Mississippi so long to ratify the 13th Amendment?

For all intents and purposes, Blacks went from being enslaved to being forced to live in apartheid.
    You said that Jim Crow spanned from 1864 to 1964. Not much interpretation, there and you're are seriously mistaken in your comments.

    We all know what I meant though, Jim Crow didn't end until 100 years after slavery was abolished. Nobody really counts those few years during reconstruction when things were different because equality was enforced by union troops stationed on formerly Confederste soil.

    We all know what you wrote and what you wrote is incredibly erroneous. It almost sounds as if you're saying that the Civil War ended in 1864, but that's too incredible, even for a Liberal.

    Nobody really counts those few years during reconstruction when things were different because equality was enforced by union troops stationed on formerly Confederste soil.

    If you believe that, you really, really, really need to read a book on Reconstruction. Federal troops committed many crimes and did many things, during Reconstruction, but enforcing equality was definitely not one of the things they did.

    No. The 13th was passed within a year of 1864, officially ending slavery.

    Arent you Right Wingers the ones who always argue that the Civil War had nothing to do with ending slavery? Funny you would argue that it did now.

    Actually, they did enforce equality so Blacks could vote and get elected to office. The Southern man didn't like it, squealed like a stuck pig, and found a way to cut a deal with Andrew Johnson the racist to end reconstruction.

    However, since you don't, I figure you know little or nothing about it.

    Being proud of ignorance seems to be a common trait over there on the Far Right.

    Who said that? I sure as hell didn't.

    Andrew Johnson, "the racist", was simply following Lincoln's intent of reconstruction.

    However, Federal troops in the south did anything but, "enforce equality". Do I need to post a definition of, "equality"?

    Your Southern Conservative brothers, of course. You are a Southern Conservative, Right? Maybe you should ask them why the Civil War was fought. I believe they call it the "War of Northern Aggression".



    Andrew Johnson, "the racist", was simply following Lincoln's intent of reconstruction.
    No he wasn't. He bucked the intent of the Republican Party. Why do you think he was impeached?

    Equality does not apply to the losing side in a revolt. Enforcing equality does mena making sure that those who were oppressed are not coninuing to be oppressed by the losing side of the revolt.

    Are you a fan of Confederate Scum?

    Now, you're saying something totally different. "why the Civil War was fought", and, "the Civil War had nothing to do with ending slavery", are two totally different statements.

    So, IOW, they didn't enforce equality? Thanks for admitting that.

    Now that we've established that, let me go farther by saying that Jim Crow was a by-product of Reconstruction and not one of southern culture.

    Are you a fan of Confederate Scum?
    All Confederates were scum?
