I did not see play the man's post. But yes this has always been the goal of the North even through Reconstruction. The South gets blamed for being the racist but in fact the North was far worse. It was not till the carpetbaggers started breeding in the South that we had race issues. The South was content to work side by side with them. The North made laws keeping black out of their states and away from their jobs. Most Jim Crow laws originated in the North.
