there is philadelphia and there is pittsburgh. all in between is alabama........Right Brother James, they are all under the constitution, which determined we could be bought, sold, less than a man, no rights, etc., right. I get it ... buuuuut ... if we're gonna be here, we can at least know which states did us worse.
For example, per these graphs from Wikipedia, not all states took part in slavery, even though they could. That does say something for those states. Yes, they are all under the same constitution, and no doubt benefitted from slavery anywhere in the land - but they did not do it themselves.
Do you think that says something, or are they all just like Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, etc., that profited greatly from the sale of black men, women, and children and fought to keep doing it forever?
