Who knows the real story behind 3/5 man legistlation?

We hear often repeated that the 3/5ths of a man designation of slaves by the congress in the 19th century represented this and represented that, and it is often repeated to support various claims of racism, etc.

Does anyone know the facts behind the 3/5ths of a man legistlation, such as why it was enacted at all? I'm asking this to see the level of knowledge and sophistication we share amongst ourselves when it comes to historical reality and our history.
