Thankyou Stephani for your informative and descriptive post. I have found many good points in your post and it is well balanced and coherent. You have discusses the historical context of equal rights. I am agreeing that Militia Act played a significant role to encourage African Americans to join navy. In my initial post I have added a picture of class room and it is related to your concept of equality. The picture clearly shows that Afro-American children of different age are present in the room. The most important thing in the picture that should be noticed is that children are being supervised by white teachers. Another important thing is how these slave children took the advantage of the school (Town bridge). This was an opportunity that was offered to by North teachers during the reconstruction period following the conclusion of Civil War. Do you think after fourteenth amendment , people from different races get the same opportunities as white?

Thankyou Andrew for your interesting post. The Ku Klux Klan, an organization of American racists, showed the "brutal face of capitalism." For membership in the Ku Klux Klan, only skin color mattered. It represented absolutely all-American Christian denominations, which did not prevent the “vampires” Christians from finding justification for intimidation and violence. Than the Ku Klux Klan was similar to Freemasonry. Gradually, the Ku Klux Klan became radicalized. Inside the organization there was a thought of overthrowing the republican government. I am agreeing with you that it is not merely an accident that these people hold the arms and their aggression and anger was without no cause. From innocuous intimidation of black clan moved to outright violence. A special ritual was developed. In the beginning, the black family threw up an oak branch or melon seeds, or grains of orange. This meant that African Americans should immediately collect belongings and leave their place of residence. Those who did not comply were severely punished. Their homes were burned, and the head of the family could be lynched. Do you think the act of KKK is justified?

It is very nice and useful post by you. I am agreeing with you that there is a strong connection between reconstructive era and slavery. As I have discussed in my initial post that African American were mostly charged with low intensity crimes, and hard labor punishments were given to them for those crimes. These hard punishments became new form of slavery, as the convicts were sent to work for white people who owns slaves in past. a term industrial slavery established as a result of these incident to hard labor punishments. On December 18, 1865, the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution entered into force, prohibiting slavery, which, in a relaxed way, actually lasted for another hundred years, after which it gradually began to turn from black to white. Do any new amendment will be able to completely finish slavery from USA?
