Written by Michael Trinkley of the Chicora Foundation
Crimes that Blacks Were Stereotypically Expected to CommitThe 1895 South Carolina constitution disqualified potential voters if they had been convicted of certain crimes that whites thought were prevalent in the black community. A voter would not be disqualified for murder, but would be ineligible to vote if convicted of such crimes as adultery, bigamy, fortification, receiving stolen goods, burglary, obtaining goods or money under false pretenses, assault with intent to ravish, or miscegenation.
