Who Killed Reconstruction? “The blacks, as a people, are unfitted for the proper exercise of political duties…..” said a Boston newspaper in 1873 saying that the Africans-Americans were too dumb to be in Congress or any political office. Three years later, was the 100th year anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. With the irony of the election of 1876 had officially crushed the African-American dream.

Their actions stretched even to white privileged Northerns. The Klansmen had no remorse, they killed men who did not agree with their opinion.

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). From this letter you can see Tourgees clear use of the word “another” meaning that other Republican men were targeted and killed by the KKK all because they fought to have the South follow the same rules as the North.
Cash was dead, Blanton and Cherry were arrested. 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
“‘There are some damned blacks in here, what shall we do with them?’ ‘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. Tim was horrified by Ned’s uncalled for decollation, and his current-Toriness was propelled out, along with his
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. Additionally, he once said “They would make fine servants with fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.” In the long run due to the slavery and murderings of the Native Americans Christopher Colombus isn’t worthy of a national holiday.
Abram Colby a former slave who was elected to the Georgia State Legislature during the Reconstruction. According to Abram Colby in document b, October 29, 1869 Klansmen broke his door, took him out of his bed, and whipped him for three hours. Later, they told him that they would never vote for a Radical ticket, and Abram Colby responded saying, “If the vote was tomorrow I would vote a Radical Ticket (Doc B Line 1-5).” Later, the Klansmen offered him $5,000 to with them and then $2,500 in cash if he would let another man go to the legislature in his place.

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.
