    South didn't fare much better under this system of oppression.  The black population was, of course, subjected to much more offense, but this was class warfare and it was at a certain level color blind.  If ever all the poor people in the South came together regardless of race, the whole game would be over.  The elite class of the South has done a very good job of preventing that from happening for nearly 200 years now.  Just take a look at their public school performance now in the early 21st Century.  South Carolina gets high marks if being at or near the very bottom of education year after year.  Of course, they've been at it much, much longer than states like Alabama or Mississippi.
