Thanks to the Invention of the Cotton Gin by a Slave named Black Sam a catylyst to the Industrial Revolution, which freed of the Slaves and not the Emancipation Proclamation like our people were trained believe, Southern Whites were outraged by the fact that their former slaves were legally free after 310 years of Chattel Slavery and the monies made from the free labor of millions of former enslaved Africans would have to be spent to take care of freed slaves who had no mone, no jobs or no place to go. Deceitful, deceptive and manipulative as Europeans are they created laws like the Black Codes, segregation and Jim Crow that could return Blacks to a condition of slavery. Admendement 13  passed by the Congress on January 31, 1865 and ratified by the states on December 6, 1865 states: Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted shall exist within the United States or any place subject to their jurisdiction. Money hungry, slave thirsty Europeans began throwing black folks in Prison, on the Chain Gang for petty offenses such as J-Waling and loitering. If you were caught in town after sundown you were hung by the Klan. Jim Crow Laws enforced segregation in the south which denied blacks equal justice under the law, employment, equal housing, education... Today nothing has changed. Slavery still exists but by another name. Black Folks still get denied justice under the law, the KKK are members of the Police, Judges, Political Office, inferior education, discrimination for banks loans, college enrollment, employment... If you're Black your either underqualified, overqualified they have invented slick ways to deny you but in the end its still slavery but by another name. This is why we must separate or continue to get caught up in the games that people play.
