            The Jim Crow Laws in the state of Alabama were cruel to anyone that was affected. The state laws were very similar to the laws in Mississippi. The first Jim Crow law was written in 1865. The jail time for breaking these rules was bad for many people that broke a law. The first Jim Crow law written in this state was written in 1865.  Now Jim Crow laws are not in existence as a result of being declared unconstitutional.
