The Slave Power Arises-

The former Confederates had failed to build a slave empire, but they would not accept the demise of white man’s government. As the former Confederate general and subsequent six-term senator from Alabama John T. Morgan wrote in 1890, democratic sovereignty in America was conferred upon “qualified voters,” and Black men, whom he accused of “hatred and ill will toward their former owners,” did not qualify and were destroying democracy by their mere participation. Disenfranchising them, therefore, was not merely justified but an act of self-defense protecting democracy against “Negro domination.”
The cultural practices ancestor of the Trump block was the base of the Slave Power.
That the mere individuals are not the same is irrelevant. The cultural idea of racial superiority is continuous and the same even though evolving different slight details and appearances.
