Herein lie the origins of "separate yet equal." many years sooner than Reconstruction, America's liberal elite used to be not able to visualize how humans of color might develop into electorate of the us. through the 19th century, local american citizens have been driven farther and farther westward, whereas 4 million slaves freed after the Civil struggle discovered themselves between a white inhabitants that had spent a long time imagining that they'd stay someplace else.
