As I previously pointed out, I doubt that narrative. People have lives, farms and children to tend to. It simply is not human nature to run around lynching people unless people are being pushed to the limit.<quoted text>You are definitely a victim of the public schools, kid.
The KKK was founded by and made up of DEMOCRATS for over 100 years until it faded into obscurity.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed by more REPUBLICANS than Democrats.
I suggest you look at lower class white Democrats if you want to see real racism. Then take a look at the racist blacks who are hailed as "leaders"...foul specimens like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
There are various letters back and forth between various Union Army officers and Gen. Grant during reconstruction that make me believe that I am on the right track here.
They were previously posted and one letter goes into great detail that the carpetbaggers were largely Jews from the North that took advantage of the southerners. That was the reason for the crackdown by the KKK. The letters also distinguish between the native Jews, which the KKK had no problem with, and the carpetbaggers in the north and talked about how the various restrictions were intended as sanctions against the carpetbaggers but not the natives.
I don't care what any revisionist history leftist pity party narrative says. This is just common sense and anybody with an ounce of common sense would have to admit that this rings more true than some caricature of southern whites running around lynching people just for the hell of it.
