Did Reconstruction End Too Early?

Postby Brian » Fri Mar 16, 2012 6:41 am

It's always been my belief that Reconstruction ended too early, and that the South wasn't sufficiently on board with black civil rights and suffrage when it ended. As evidence of this, I would cite Jim Crow and the Black Codes sprouting up after the troops left.

Now, I honestly don't know how long it would've taken to do things the right way, but my feeling is that if Reconstruction had lasted longer, it wouldn't have taken until the 1950's for equal rights in education to come about, and 1965 until the voting rights of blacks were secured.

What's your opinion on this?

All of us white folk in the south can't comment ........if we agree, were are just hiding our racism, if we disagree we are racists......we have been labeled that from the start, and it will always continue. No matter what strides are made down here, there are always those that will label us, you saw that in the old 24 forum...
Save America, IMPEACH OBAMA! And continue tossing out the deadbeat Democrats that are currently in office.

It looks like reconstruction ended too late, after too much corruption had set in and too much resentment has set in, resulting in Jim Crow Laws and the KKK.
The civil rights laws from the admin of LBJ went way too far in allowing Affirmative Action. This is discrimination against whites, still done to this day. For instance, after honorable and valorous service it trumped "Veteran's Preference", and made it so that to get a good job flying airlines or any multi-engine airplanes, a white male had to have 500 hours of multi-engine time. Minorities and women did not, with requirements waived. The only white males who could get 500 hours ME time were Air Force guys trained at government expense and leaving before that expense had been remotely paid back through service. Quotas were imposed, or attempted. This went for other careers and for school admissions requirements. It was the beginning of the dumbing down of America with some graduating college who were technically illiterate, and becoming teachers to classrooms having a higher and higher percentage of the lower IQ spectrum. This was from the ones here out-breeding the over 100 IQ by 50%, and by the LBJ 1965 Immigration Act which took away the existing population demographics and limits to amount of people coming in to those leaving, and started nearly unlimited third world lower spectrum IQ over-breeding cultures from countries ruined by their own self imposed overpopulation.
Slavery should never have been allowed from the beginning of the USA, and blacks here should have had their passage back to Africa paid for by those who had owned slaves. The economic system where slavery was needed, with the political power of slave holders, should never have started.
The democratic Republican form of government requires an electorate of informed, knowledgeable voters. What we have instead is a dumbing down society of people manipulated by the media owned by big corporations. The government of the people, is not.
Instead we now have the largest fraud perpetrated in our history, in the form of a President who has displayed forged documents, and does not fulfill Constitutional requirements. He is the politically correct color even though he is 1/2 white, 3/8 Arab, and 1/8 black African. I have my doubts as to the validity of most votes, with machines that can be manipulated.
The corruption followed by tyranny, feared by Jefferson, did not take long to begin its evil growth. The country has been gripped by an aggressive form of cancer, especially post JFK, in my witnessing.
Civil War Reconstruction lasted too long, seeding corruption that Lincoln feared.

the whole idea was badly done from the start, what was needed was a plan which didn't really exist on how to tackle the issues facing the south, instead they just did what they hoped was needed and went on

that never works well cause in doing that you add more issues to the existing ones, after about a year the whole idea needed to be scrapped and rethought but back then the mindset was to keep the south from ever being a threat to the union again and to give the blacks rights

but with the whole plan in ruins and not much being done to tackle the problems the south had little chance of doing anything useful in that situation
expect the unexpected
