102. All of those things you listed took place in the 1950s and 1960s
between the end of the Civil War and that time, there was one, maybe two Presidents which could be considered from Southern States, Woodrow Wilson and Harry Truman. Jim Crow was a collusion between the North and the South, until almost 100 years after the Civil War.

"Guess you missed out on basic history during high school, like the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act and freedom marches and forced integration of schools...all because racist southerners were clinging for dear life on to the notion of segregating and denying rights to people based on the color of their skin."
