The great Dinesh D’Souza debunked the leftist myth that the 3/5ths compromise shows Founders were racist. The 3/5th compromise was what the Founding Fathers agreed upon on how much a slave would count in population for the census of a state.
The left claims the 3/5th rule was to devalue the worth of a black person, but that is inaccurate. The North wanted them to count as zero and the South wanted them to count as one. they compromised to count them as 3/5ths of a person.
North reason for want zero- To decrease the power of the South in an attempt to eventually remove slavery from the Country.
South reasons for a full count of One- To keep power of the Country and never lose the right to own slaves in the Country.
The 3/5th was not racist but in fact created by the North in an attempt to remove slavery from our great country.
