Juneteenth marks the beginning of the KKK


Literally it marks the extremely slow news of the defeat of the Confederacy and the occupation of the South by Union Troops enforcing the new laws on the population.

When the Radical Republicans in the Congress grew tire of Reconstruction the law enforcers (The Union Occupation Army) was defunded.

The KKK among other informal groups took the place of the Union Army.

How'd that work out?

Be part of the Healing

Mr. Hicks, Lord have mercy - I see in your remarks a twisted reading of history to discredit the need for real police reforms and reallocation of community funds for a more safe community built on equal justice of the law. I invite you to watch "13th" and gain deeper appreciation of our country's history and to be part of the healing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krfcq5pF8u8 Have a blessed Juneteenth.
