The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of this land. Included in the constitution is the three-fifths compromise. The Three-Fifths Compromise is found in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution. It says: “Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three-fifths of all other Persons.”

This is the first Affirmative Action policy in America.

I don't get it. What are you trying to say here?
 
The op makes no sense

“The three-fifths compromise is part of the Constitution which appeased the Southern states by allowing a slave’s vote to only count as 3/5 of a vote”

Huh?

Slaves couldnt vote at all

Of course. How was that "affirmative Action"?
 
As I said elsewhere this morning, IM1 is a lovely example of someone falling apart as we watch .
Thank you Boosters .
Bet you have reached the stage where you think that you are the Black Messiah --- though I think of you as the Black Mess .

He‘s saying he’s more alarmed by what happened in 1767 regarding blacks than the fact that liberals are calling for death to Jews TODAY.

It's probably bad enough to IM2 that his "most favored minority" status is being usurped by the illegal aliens.

But now the Palestinians want a piece of the pie too, and nobody cares about Negroes anymore.

Ouch! :laughing0301:

And he’s alarmed that Jews are currently being such victims of hate speech and threats that it‘s becoming more and more ridiculous for him to clamor on about 1767 and how bad it used to be for blacks.
 
The OP doesn't understand the 3/5 compromise. The slave states wanted slaves to count as residents for apportioning Representatives in Congress. The non-slave states didn't want them to count at all since the slave states considered slaves to be property. Property doesn't get Representatives. So they compromised.

Stop trying to justify this shit white man. The OP understand that the compromise never should have been made. That's what YOU don't understand. That compromise was the first Affirmative Action Policy for the US as a nation. As a colony there were several.

There is no most favored minority status white man. That's your delusion.

The only people falling apart is you guys. You can't face all the preferences whites have been given.

Is the above intended to be your plea for reparations?

Now you are bleating like a sore loser .

But let's be fair .
As a group Blacks have done jolly well in the face of their handicaps and not being as smart in IQ terms as Asians and White Caucasians .
But we all love triers . However boring .
So well done for effort

BTW ,
If a few "preferences " have come our way , they could not have gone to a nicer group .

Are you trying to say that the slaves should have counted as full people for the allotment of Representatives (which would have made slaves states more politically powerful) or that they should have counted as just property?

That's bullshit and you know it. We've been over this many times before. The slave owners wanted their slaves (you know what they considered farm animals, not people) to be counted for the census to enhance the slave state's political power. The free states didn't want slaves counted at all. The slave states won the compromise getting each slave counted as three fifth of a free person. AND the compromise only counted towards slaves, NOT free blacks who were counted as full people just like whites. Oddly, the democrats that you support want to count illegal aliens who can't vote for the census to increase the democrat's political power and you don't have a single problem with it. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
