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?

Thank you Brother Clyde ... but Georgia and DC both held enslaved Africans prior to 1860. They agreed with the premise that we should be slaves. I wonder what makes them a magnet given this fact. Have they learned to treat us better, after enslaving us? I'm still drawn to those states that had little or no enslaved Africans, those that did not require a law to stop such inhumane behavior toward us.

Oh, okay, then you mean these states:


What states were free states during the Civil War?

The Union consisted of 20 free states and four border states. Free states included California, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Maine, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Oregon, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Kansas, New York, Nevada, Vermont, Ohio, Michigan and West Virginia.

Which one state from the above would you choose to live in?

Black People Need a Safe State in AmericaLet’s Make It Georgia



... can Black people ever be secure in America?

The states of Texas, North Carolina, and Georgia have drawn the largest increase in older people that tend to be reliable voters. Blacks have flocked to the Atlanta area more than any other part of the country in recent years, according to the 2019 Pew Center report, “A Change in Politics with More Black Voters in the Deep South.”
