What if the North had been harsher on the South after the American Civil War? (self.HistoricalWhatIf)

What if the North had kept troops stationed in the south for a longer period of time and passed harsher laws? Could the Jim Crow laws have been prevented? Would we have seen such a racist era? How would things have played out differently? This could have happened had there been more pressure from Northerners, and if there had not been an economic depression.
