  The Black Codes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The fl codes had their roots in the slave codes that had formerly been in effect.
The fl codes enacted immediately after the American Civil War, though varying from state to state, were all intended to secure a steady supply of cheap labor, and all continued to assume the inferiority of the freed slaves.
Reconstruction did away with the fl codes, but, after Reconstruction was over, many of their provisions were reenacted in the Jim Crow laws, which were not finally done away with until passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

 Northern Exclusion of Blacks
All in all, the "free" fls of colonial Pennsylvania led severely circumscribed lives; they had no control even over their own family arrangements, and they could be put back into servitude for "laziness" or petty crimes, at the mercy of the local authorities.
Like the fl codes of the South and Midwest in the 19th century, enforcement of Northern colonial race laws was selective, and their real value lay in harassment and discouragement of further settlement, and in being a constant reminder to free fls that their existence was precarious and dependent on white toleration.
Blacks petitioned against the exclusion laws, but the state legislature denied they had the right to petition the government "for any purpose whatsoever." Finally, after the Free Soil Party gained a degree of power in the state in 1849, a compromise partially repealed the Black Laws, ending the bond-posting requirement.

 Handbook of Texas Online:
Black Codes were the laws passed by Southern state legislatures to define the legal place of fls in society after the Civil War.

Blacks were not allowed to vote or hold office, they could not serve on juries, and they could testify only in cases involving other fls.

Based largely on the old fl codes, the new laws gave the ex-slaves some basic rights, but they also discriminated against them.

 The Black Commentator - The Color of Justice - Issue 107
But America’s present obsession with the mass incarceration of Black people is by no means a recent phenomenon.  Indeed, as historian David Oshinsky notes in his compelling book, Worse Than Slavery, America’s endeavor to warehouse Black folks in cages has deep historical roots that can be traced back to the conclusion of the Civil War.
While the incarceration rate is lower for Black women, who represent the fastest growing imprisoned population, the racial disparities are equally dramatic.  Black women comprise nearly half of the nation’s incarcerated female population of about 150,000.  If current trends continue, 1 in every 18 Black females born today can expect to go to prison.
As intended, targeted law enforcement techniques have resulted in Blacks constituting more than 80% of crack defendants, despite the fact that approximately two-thirds of drug users in the general population are white.  Consequently, 57% of all drug offenders in state prison, and 41% of federal drug offenders, are Black.
