1: We don't care about your personal opinion. 2: You are not qualifiied to say what is good. 3: "Your" ideas on who's opinion and word matter are also egocentric.--Jakezing (talk) 01:32, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Hm...[edit]

After reading most of your contribs, you seem to be the one with the ego my "freind". --Jakezing (talk) 03:45, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Issues in the North[edit]

In the northeastern states, blacks faced discrimination in many forms. Segregation was rampant, especially in Philadelphia, where African Americans were excluded from concert halls, public transportation, schools, churches, orphanages, and other places. And soon after the turn of the century, African American men began to lose the right to vote -- a right that many states had granted following the Revolutionary War. New Jersey took the black vote away in 1807; in 1818, Connecticut took it away from black men who had not voted previously; in 1821, New York took away property requirements for white men to vote, but kept them for blacks. This meant that only a tiny percentage of black men could vote in that state. In 1838, Pennsylvania took the vote away entirely. The only states in which black men never lost the right to vote were Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts.

The situation in what is now the midwestern sectio of the U.S. was worse. In Ohio, the state constitution of 1802 deprived blacks of the right to vote, to hold public office, and to testify against whites in court. Over the next five years, more restrictions were placed on African Americans. They could not live in Ohio without a certificate proving their free status, they had to post a $500 bond "to pay for their support in case of want," and they were prohibited from joining the state militia.

Contrary to popular belief that northern states welcomed blacks with open arms is simply untrue. Several states went so far as to enact laws to prevent blacks entering. In Illinois there were severe restrictions on free blacks coming into that state, and Indiana barred them altogether. Michigan, Iowa, and Wisconsin were no friendlier. Because of this, the black populations of the northwestern states never exceeded 1 percent.

African Americans also faced violence at the hands of white northerners. Individual cases of assault and murder occured throughout the North, as did daily insults and harassment. Between 1820 and 1850, Northern blacks also became the frequent targets of mob violence. Whites looted, tore down, and burned black homes, churches, schools, and meeting halls. They stoned, beat, and sometimes murdered blacks. Philadelphia was the site of the worst and most frequent mob violence. City officials there generally refused to protect African Americans from white mobs and blamed blacks for inciting the violence with their "uppity" behavior.
