how does restoring voting to whites in the south help protect rights of freedmen in the 1870s? freedmen by the way were the slaves. thx for ur help :)

It would have caused a great deal of anger if freedmen could vote, but whites couldn't vote. This was a necessary move to guarantee that blacks could vote in the south.
