cuz everything was rebuilt witch made things hard!
Not only that, but there were fields destroyed, prices on everything went up, white southerners lost their labor force, and freed blacks were penniless. Also, economic reasons aside, racism was growing ever higher and supremecist groups were made like the KKK. People were constantly being killed. Whites did not feel that blacks should be as good as them and they were horrified to see them have so much power. Many of them lost their ways of life. ~The Knowing.
