Their actions stretched even to white privileged Northerns. The Klansmen had no remorse, they killed men who did not agree with their opinion. Albion Tourgee writes in a letter to Carolina Republican Senator Joseph C. Abbott and shows the truth about being Republican of 1870, “John W. Stephens, State Senator from Caswell, is dead. He was foully murdered by the Ku-Klux… Another brave, honest Republican citizen has met his fate at the hands of these friends.” (Document A).
Cherry was convicted of murder and was sentenced to life in prison. The Ku Klux Klan is not as big as it used to be but that doesn’t keep many races from living in fear. These are many reasons that over the past few years the Ku Klux Klan has developed majorly in many ways, and how they have caused other minorities to live with physical and mental issues. All the destruction they have caused is the reason for the Klan to be classified as a HATE group and has caused others to live in
‘Kill them,’” (144). Poor Ned was stabbed in the gut, then on top of it all, decapitated. Ned was neutral, so there was no sound reason for him to be killed. This shows that both sides were unjust, with the Loyalists killing and the Patriots excluding black people.
Christopher Columbus isn’t worthy of a national holiday. For one thing, he slaughtered and killed Native Americans and brought over diseases as well. Also Colombus started the American holocaust such as the murder, torture, pillaging, robbery, kidnapping, and slavery of the native people.

We need to change the black community before we end ourselves by our own hands, by stereotype and the foolishness that we set for ourselves and the only way to fix this is to stop taking shortcuts. Do you know how many black people died by another black man? About 93% of blacks are killed in a black on black over something ignorant. By killing ourselves like this you’re letting someone like the KKK win, they didn’t even have to lift a finger to do harm. Real life example of this is a black man here in Atlanta, that killed his own son for drawing on his new Jordans.

The Reconstruction period was a brutal time period for America in order to fix the things destroyed during the Civil War, but it was overall worth it.

One of the things that all started movement towards Civil Rights was the 13th Amendment.
