    I am so hoping for that.
    Not because it’s ‘fair’ or even a good idea but so I can be called a racist for opposing calling Brown Folk 3/5ths human.
    I’m already a racist for opposing separating us by race, it’s just not that funny anymore.

    ^ Well, the 3/5 Compromise was created to limit the power of the slave states; and it became clear to me that illegal immigration is kind’a the same thing, politically, for the sanctuary states

    ^I’d say it was to increase the power of the slave states/slave owners.
    The Dems wanted it both ways, to call their slaves property but to increase slave owners’ power.
    In the counties with big plantations, you’d have 10 voters getting the representatives of 110 people.

    Either way, today’s Dem voters think it was racist Republicans saying black folk were only 3/5th human while simon-pure Dems wanted them to be recognized as fully human.

    I’m trying to imagine the outrage if someone offered the “3/5″ compromise with illegals.

    It’d take a heart of stone not to laugh at the thought.

    With only 60% of all conceptions in NYC are not aborted you could make the case that our youngest and most vulnerable are only 3/5ths human.
