This was mostly due to the racism and hate that the south had towards African Americans specially after the civil war. For example, some people from the south blamed all the misery that the war had brought upon them on African Americans. One North Carolina innkeeper expressed his discontent by saying “To hate ‘em. I got up at half-past four in the morning, and sit up till twelve at night, to hate ‘em” (334). Although his opinion does not represent how all southerners felt it did represent a majority of them during that time of reconstruction.
Another reason why it could have been the North's fault is because there was racism in the North too (Doc. D para. 1)), but the racism wasn’t as bad as in the South. In the South they abused Blacks, but in the North they just limited the Blacks rights. There are many different reasons if the North or South killed reconstruction, but we will never know who truly killed
Should art be censored? Throughout history, many have felt the need to remove or suppress material that they consider to be morally or politically objectionable, such as books, films, or other materials. They feel that these materials should not be taught in schools or shown in public museums. These people believe no one should be subjected to something that may be against their teachings or beliefs. Others, however, do not feel that these or any works of art should be suppressed.
People have been fighting over a flag for far too long. It is cloth stained with dye on a pole. Why does something made with cloth and stitches have to separate a country based on freedom? Some people argue the Confederate flag is an item of racism, and should be banned from being flown. Others believe it is “just culture” and “heritage”, nothing more than an item of history that can be used for learning purposes and historical Reenactments.
The living legacy of the United States Civil War is a complicated time in American history one finds difficult to describe. The ramification of the war prior, during and after still haunt the current citizens who call The States their home. Tony Horwitz’s book Confederates in the Attic: Dispatches from the Unfinished Civil War looks at the wide gap of discontent that still looms in the late 1990s. For some southerners, the Confederacy still lives on through reenactments, stories and beliefs. For others in the South, reminders the land was dedicated to the Confederacy spark hatred and spite.
You just need to be aware of the time you have to work with. Under the rigid and disciplined way of military life there is no room for error. There are many circumstances where a failure to be prompt could have consequences. Under certain circumstances, such as those in a combat zone, not arriving for guard duty at the designated time could allow a breach of security that could ultimately end in the murder of your fellow soldiers at the hands of an insurgent. Punctuality in the military cannot be overstated.
Argumentative Essay The debate over how the Confederate and Columbus monuments should be treated starting from Confederate monuments in Southern cities like Charlottesville, VA has led to similar debates over Columbus monuments in northern cities like New York over what the statues have come to represent to people. In which to some it has come to represent racism, slavery, oppression, and destruction, but to others it is an honor towards their ancestors, culture, and race. Though in the end the Confederate monuments should just be left alone as there is no assurance that in the removal, destruction, or transfer of these monuments will stop or end the controversy involving the monuments in question towards both the supporting and opposing sides
In Atlanta Ga, Charlottesville Nc, and in every other formerly Confederate State in the U.S. there has been controversial debates on whether or not the current standing Confederate statues should be removed from public areas. Many people claim that a modern society should not honor the racist soldiers who fought for slavery. Others believe that preserving historical accuracy is essential to learning from the mistakes of the past. The opinions of thousands of citizens clash with one another over the debate between offense and information. I believe that it is most beneficial for the majority of people if the current Confederate monuments remain where they are.
The KKK let a picture out to the world showing they didn’t want African Americans to vote and wished for them to have the littlest amount to vote. (Document C). The KKK didn’t like African Americans being able to vote because they believed they were not real people and that they didn’t deserve many rights. Freedman, African Americans, or mulattos that were not apart of the military service could not own or even keep a weapon and if caught with a weapon, they would get a fine and the weapon would be confiscated (Document D). The KKK benefited from those people not being able to have a weapon because it meant African American’s had less right, in which they counted for less of a real person.
Also, in time where discrimination and other violent actions against African Americans were considered acceptable or normal by a large number of people. The word is a sign of everything that the Americans’ who were slaves fought so hard against in the war for Civil Rights Movements. The continuous use of the word 3 Sanders shows the ignorance and disregards that so many have for people who have fought so hard for us to have freedom. The “N” word has been involved in many racial divides in the world.
Though seven states passed the black codes they tended to vary between states, like how in South Carolina it was required for blacks who wished to enter nonagricultural employment to get a special license or in Mississippi the codes tried to block their ability to buy and sell farmland. Many parts of these codes didn’t take effect because of the union suspending the enforcement of racially discriminatory provisions of the new laws (Boyer et al, p.473). The black codes revealed many white southern intentions and many northerners denounced what they were doing and called it southern defiance. Even many congressmen were upset about the black codes and in December of 1865 they refused to seat the delegates from ex-Confederate states, this actually established the first joint committee (the house and the senate). The Radical Republicans (just a faction of the Republican Party that also supported blacks freedoms in most cases) were very out raged at the treatment of the newly freed slaves and they tried to dismantle the black codes and also tried to lock the ex-
Recently, our country has been under scrutiny for racial discrimination. From police brutality to shootings at a church, America’s racial problems that were swept under the rug for so long have come back out into the light. After the raciallymotivated shooting of nine people in South Carolina, many petitions were made regarding the removal of Confederate flags and monuments, including the removal of the historic carving on the side of Stone Mountain, but I believe this would be a terrible mistake. The largest high relief sculpture in the world, the Confederate Memorial Carving, depicts three Confederate heroes of the Civil War, President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson.

In the seventeenth chapter of A People 's History of the United States: 1492-Present by Howard Zinn, he discussed the anger and emotion in African Americans. He implored how it can erupt in big ways. Even though, the government created reforms, they were not fundamental and the laws passed were not enforced. This developed two different ideologies in society about how to deal with the problem of discrimination and racism. In society, African Americans had been oppressed for a long time, leading to the ultimate question "Does it explode?"
Traditional southern whites became violent during the early years of Reconstruction. They have assaulted the blacks, which got in their way even to the point of murdering them. They disdain the fact that both the blacks and the whites became equals after the Civil War. This incident posed a failure in the Reconstruction because not all the southern whites were able to accept the reality that blacks were no longer slaves but part of the American society with equal rights and citizenship. The government somehow failed to rehabilitate the way of thinking of the whites due to the fact that some of the leaders of the nation still have opposing views on how to treat liberty as a
