There appears to be some confusion in our political process when it comes to the Jim Crow laws. So will the real Jim Crow please stand up? See, there were laws passed in some areas that encoded the idea that society had to be separated through the use of racial segregation. No mixed race schools or public buildings, black and white public water fountains, and of course black men could not sit down at a lunch counter in a white neighborhood and order a burger. And poll taxes and literacy tests were used to stop black people from voting. They were most common in the old Democrat South, until fifty or so years ago, when the Civil Rights Movement marched in peaceful protest against them on national TV. By the time I grew up, some twenty years later, they had been all but forgotten, remembered only as an evil that should never be repeated. That is the real Jim Crow. Never Forget it.
