Any Negro could be lynched for voting. The Ku Klux Klan made their own set of rules. The Federal Government did not force individual States to obey Federal rules that controlled voting. Each State controls who may vote, so the Ku Klux Klan controlled who could vote. Negroes kept away from the polling places because they knew that they could be lynched. The article is misleading. The article requires an NPOV because it does not mention the effectiveness of the Ku Klux Klan. Superslum 16:24, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
Good point. It's also misleading in that it has random spam in it.18.104.22.168 19:09, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
Shouldn't the text of an act be in Wikipedia Commons? I thought Wikipedia was for explaining things. I think a better use of this page would be to explain in greater detail the provisions in this act, who created it, why it was created, etc... The exact text of the Reconstruction Act doesn't help me understand it at all! 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:16, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
I second this, the text should be moved to wikicite and the first portion should remain. Orangesoda31 (talk) 22:05, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
