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

Listen whiteboy, you supposed to be a math teacher????

Is 3/5ths as much as 1???

3/5ths was NOT a "a way for the South to increase their population figures to gain seats in Congress"

3/5ths WAS a way for the NORTH to lessen and counteract the influence of the south in the congress by cutting the south's representation in congress. The south was going to vote FULL representation, the north's proposal of 3/5ths at least lowered that somewhat. The numbers in the house at the time could very well have given the south ALL that they wanted. In fact, its a miracle that 3/5ths got passed at all, it was 'compromise' in its truest sense.

What you used to, silver spoons whiteboy??? Didn't you have any history classes in that school you went to?
