Was there any good people who lived in the American South at that time.
Seems not to be.share
Most human beings are situationally good at best, hardly anyone is "good" all the time!
Especially people who live in a society where Wrong is not just legal, but socially enforced. White southerners who were against segregation tended to be quiet about it. The pro-segregationists could be extremely nasty about making sure their views prevailed, to put in politely.
