our country did not want to support the laws that were made. When the government said that you have to accept the 13th and 14th amendments no one took it seriously. the funny thing is that the people that wrote the 13th and 14th amendements believed that there should be slaves. One of the things that went wrong is that when everyone was made equal the blacks were not guaranteed any land and they did not have any money so they had to keep working the same hours just to make enough money to keep them alive. Obousily there was not enough thought put into this. Another big thing that went wrong was the seperation between the blacks and the whites. For example there were black bathrooms and white bathrooms others include the blacks sitting at the back of the bus, we never truly learned to be as one nation.
