Jim Crow was just as bad as slavery!
What was “convict leasing” all about?
Blacks were arrested for the most petty of crimes, and then they were leased out, having to do hard labor. This is why it is often said, that America was built on the backs of slave labor.
A hundred Blacks were lynched on average during those years, but thousands of Blacks died every year, with the convict leasing programs.
