    it has much to do with history,

    the south favored slavery because it economically benefited them more than the north.

    after the civil ware ended and the confederates lost, the south still had much of its pro-slavery racism ideas from the past, while the north was more progressive

    the south was also the hotbed for the KKK

    Because they were completely different people to the people alive today. That was so long ago that they are all dead. Someone else is driving that car now. But your question shows how current you are. You should update yourself at least to Kennedy and Selma and stop trying to win the Black vote with these foolish references to things over a hundred years ago, because African-Americans are not stupid and it is an obvious insult to our intelligence.

    They wanted ways to keep blacks away from them. It was a way to circumvent integration laws.

      The ratification of the 14th Amendment in July 1868 transformed national belonging, and made African Americans, and indeed all those born on U.S. soil, citizens. Jim Crow was almost a century after they HAD citizenship.
