three-fifths compromise

Those who did not go through do not understand those who went through... It's a damn shame what white folks will do to save their own asses

Why would you count me for your bullshit, when you fail to count me for anything good? Even though it's a bad example some seem to think it is a prudent example.

The Three-Fifths Compromise, which legally represented slaves as less than a person for purposes of state representation in Congress..Southern delegates wanted to count the whole slave population, which would have given the South greater influence over national policy. Northern delegates argued slaves should not be counted at all, because they had no vote. As the price for achieving the ultimate aim of the Constitution-"to form a more perfect union"-the two sides compromised on this immediate issue of how to count slaves in the new nation. Pragmatic half-victories kept in view the higher aspiration of drawing the country more closely together.

This compromise was made in the best interest of White folk, it was only white folk talking. Would you count your wife, children as three-fifths of a Human Being just to get your way, they would?

It's time for their asses to make a compromise. Now, let's see if they will make the same sacrifices for themselves as they forced upon their slaves, which they do not admit having.
