That is why the Constitution called us three-fifths human and then whites further dehumanized us by calling us niggers.
Um, Jesse, it was the southern slavers who called you that. Even though you were only property to them they didn't want you to hold any value whatsoever when the tax man cometh. Only when they demanded proportional representation in congress did they see any value to you - besides your strong backs. That is where the 3/5ths compromise came from. You can thank your party for your misery.
The three-fifths compromise precedes the Democrat party by 41 years.
