    The answer suggests that the South formed the Black Codes because they were heavily reliant on slave labor and wanted to maintain control over black individuals by keeping them on their farms. The Black Codes were a series of laws enacted by Southern states after the Civil War to restrict the rights and freedoms of African Americans. These laws aimed to maintain social and economic control over the newly freed slaves and ensure their continued labor on plantations and farms.

      E: Yes

    • D.

      D: No

    Correct Answer
    C. E: Yes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is E: Yes. This is because enforcing the 14th and 15th Amendments, which granted equal rights and voting rights to African Americans, was indeed difficult. These amendments faced significant opposition and resistance from white supremacists and segregationists in the South. Many states implemented discriminatory practices such as literacy tests, poll taxes, and intimidation tactics to prevent African Americans from exercising their rights. The federal government had to intervene and pass additional legislation, such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, to further enforce these amendments and protect the rights of African Americans.
