Sure, much of the problem came from the Confederate South, but the North after the Civil War only cared so far as they tried to pull States back into the Union. Once that was done, they mostly forgot about the African-Americans. It was a mess on a national scale that saw malice against African-Americans from both sides, both enabled or otherwise.

Andrew Johnson and Hayes killed Reconstruction, sadly.

Pretty much, and made it a lot worse and a lot more complicated than it should have been for basically everyone involved.

... Y'know, that's a very fair point, but the context to why I'm referring to them as traitors in a negative way should mend that issue. I'm not calling them traitors in a negative light because treason is an inherently bad thing - it's not, in my opinion. I'm calling them that in a negative manner because they used their states' "freedom" and their treason against the Union as an excuse to violently uphold the abhorrent institution of slavery, and that was practically their only reason for doing such a thing. Their rebellion wasn't about building a better society against the grind of a monstrous government or to genuinely win freedom, it was to keep people in chains. That's why I view their treason negatively.

Hope that clears things up.

Here's a right-wing topic.

Who is your favourite fictional detective? For example; Maigret, Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, etc.

My two favourites are Hercule Poirot and Father Brown, because of their intelligence, quirkiness and kindness. Both being Catholic is a just a coincidence, h-honest.
