Segregation in Southern VictoryEdit
The Confederate States' phasing-out of slavery in the 1880s did not mean the end of mistreatment of the black population of the C.S.A. Numerous laws were put inn place to restrict black rights within the border of the C.S.A., which ultimately led to the Red Rebellion of 1915. These laws were, however, far less of a monstrosity than the Population Reduction eventually perpetrated by President Jake Featherston during the Second Great War.
Among the legal restrictions imposed on the black population were:
- They were not permitted to have surnames (although this was not enforced in Cuba, a very permissive state)
- They were required to carry passbooks for identification purposes even for internal travel within the C.S.A.
- They were defined as residents rather than citizens; therefore they did not have the right to vote.
