25th William McKinley 1897-1901 Republican

  • Unwilling to alienate White south
  • Denounced lynchings in his 1897 inaugural address but never condemn it formally
  • Anti black violence was a epic proportions but he refrained from taking action
  • Most blacks that were able to vote in 1896 were hopeful about McKinley, but ended up being disappointed by his policies and appointments
  • He was executed in October 1901

Another President with promise that ended up being a disappointment for Blacks in America.
