The institution of slavery (who created it, supported it) and today lives in denial of their active participation, has been spun by the media and modern Democrats.
What the media and Democrats fail to mention (selectively and purposefully) is how they wanted slaves to be counted as citizens. Why? To give them greater representation in the new government – all the while denying them their freedom.—Fast forward to today. Doesn’t it sound a little like “illegal immigrants” voting agenda.
