You do realize that during Reconstruction whites killed an estimated 20 to 50k blacks and raped and injured many more. Blacks had severe restrictions on owning firearms per state laws that were approved by the US Supreme Court's Cruikshank Decision . So yes in an era if political terror that would last a long time black newspapers had very good reason to be deferential to white Southerners Confederate Monuments.
