I thought it would be interesting to note on this July 4th, contrary to the propaganda taught to children in government schools, some of the truths about our nation’s founding, and in particularly with regard to our Constitution’s three-fifths clause, which children are falsely taught by government school teachers made Blacks three-fifths of a person.

It is so sad that government school teachers use their position of power over innocent and impressionable grade school children, to fill their minds with lies and propaganda to create a hatred in their minds towards our Constitution and our nation’s founding.

The truth is, the injustice of slavery was not an injustice inflicted or supported by our Constitution. Quite the contrary! Upon the creation of the United States Constitution, as witnessed by Article 1, Sec. 2, Clause 3, a specific penalty was imposed upon those states having state sponsored slavery! Unfortunately, the constitutional penalty for state-sponsored slavery has been distorted and mischaracterized over the years by government school teachers who falsely teach our nation’s children the provision in question made " blacks three-fifths of a person."., and they do so for no other reason but to discredit our Constitution and bring shame to the founding of the United States.

But a review of the actual words of Article 1, Sec. 2, clause 3, which are used as a weapon to discredit our Constitution, reveals slave holding states were penalized by this provision which denied them representation in Congress in proportion to their actual population size—the population of slaves not being fully counted when apportioning representatives among the states, which diminished the voting strength of slave holding states in Congress!

In addition, our founding fathers provided a specific provision in the Constitution allowing Congress to tax the importation of slaves after the year 1808, which was specifically intended to be used to discourage the importation of slaves and help bring an end to slavery!

It is also important to note that after the Revolutionary War and the people of America gained their independence from foreign domination [the real culprit of slavery on American soil] the people within a number of the states, exercising their newly found freedom, quickly moved to share the blessings of liberty to all by abolishing slavery! For example, the people of Vermont took this immediate action in its 1777 declaration of rights, which declared “no…person born in this country, or brought here over sea, ought to be holden by law to serve any person as a servant, slave, or apprentice”. Likewise, the Massachusetts constitution of 1780 declared that “all men are born free and equal” and was used by the court a few years after its adoption to legally forbid any person to be held as a slave. And, in 1787, the Northwest Ordinance stated “there shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude in the said Territory, otherwise than in the punishment of crimes whereof the party shall have been duly convicted.” By the year 1788 all the states north of Maryland , except New York and New Jersey, had legislated to extinguish slavery, and by 1804 the remaining two northern states [ N.Y. and N.J.] had put slavery to rest.

Aside from the above historical facts, let us not forget that Fifth Column activist teachers took their propaganda to a new level during the Obama Administration and used our government school system and a captive defenseless audience to actually engage in classroom rituals, having the children singing praising to and glorifying President Obama whose Administration worked tirelessly to fundamentally transform the United States into a socialist paradise, similar to that of Cuba where the same kind of Revolutionaries took over and now rule of the people with an iron fist

Let us all take a moment now and sing praise to Obama . . .​

This sounds like a glass 3/5 full argument. Without this provision, the southern colonies would never have ratified the Constitution and there wouldn't have been a United States in the first place. The underlying predicament was that these colonies wanted compensation for ending slavery, which the northern colonies were not willing to pay.

Economics played a similar role in the Civil War. The Confederate States wanted duty-free ports from which to ship their goods, but this would have seriously depleted the Federal Government's source of revenue. Jefferson Davis offered to pay for confiscated federal property in those states, but Lincoln rebuffed this offer and our costliest war ensued.

I'm not incredibly ignorant or an emotional snowflake about the real Founding of this country.
So, tell us, who was it that attempted to stop Hiram Rhodes Revels from taking his seat in Congress?

JWK

The Democrat Party Leadership has been angry, stupid and obnoxious ever since the Republican Party Leadership freed democrat owned slaves and put the KKK out of business. ___ Author unknown

My parents immigrated here in 1980 and I was born in Miami in 1981. I say all that to ask you why you would think I would give a shit that white Southerners were racist pieces of human shit who also happened to vote for the Democratic Party? I don't have any problem acknowledging that you hilariously little snowflake. I want to teach all little white children that Democrats like Robert E Lee and Jefferson Davis and Nathan Bedford Forrest, weren't Southern gentlemen fighting for their homes and States Rights, they were piece of shit racists, fighting for slavery. And they were also Democrats. So what? Them being Democrats is like the least problematic thing about them. 😄

Maybe you should ask your parents why they immigrated to the United States. And then thank your lucky stars you were born in the United States and not a place like Cuba.

They are not “liberals” or “progressives”. They are Authoritarian Revolutionaries, the very kind who took over Cuba and now rule over the people with an iron fist.

They immigrated here because black Civil Rights heroes cucked white Southern racists, took their party from them, and established a foothold in this country from which to extend black and brown political and economic power.
