    America was a much safer place under Jim Crow laws.

    It isn't hard to pinpoint when crime started spiraling out of control, think about it..

    Probably so, it's really hard to tell how many white southerners feel that way now, in this politically correct society many wouldn't dare state something like that in fear of being labeled a racist. A large number of blacks did migrate up North, that's actually the main reason NYC, Philly, Camden, Trenton, and Chicago have such a large black population now.

    Spookie you ignorant ****, yes America was a much safer place for WHITES under Jim Crow laws and other laws intact to keep Native Americans and African slaves disenfranchised, but now America is an equal opportunity country. Meaning whites aren't the only people who can murder and get away with it. Now at least that's somewhat fair.

  • 1. Well society has matured over time.........but it was the civil rights movement that caused them to mature. So probably yes, America would still have Jim Crow laws.

    2. Blacks actually did migrate to the north during the Jim Crow years (some of them anyway).

    If white northerners had their way would they still have control of the cotton fields and railways?
