I mean they are like SO OVERRATED.

Also, our Economy was so much stronger when Slavery was still legal.

You are still cheating. You need to do it per capita. I think you will still "win" though (just by a mere 10-1 margin or something). Tongue

And don't forget that slaves count only as 3/5th persons for such a calculation.

I don't see why they should count at all - that 3/5ths thing was just a political trick by the South to get more representation, no?

For economic purposes they were similar to cattle or hogs.  What was the white population of the US in 1860?

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

What's not to get? They've been a critical player in American history from the beginning of the colonial period. And what to do with them has been the seminal question the entire time. Without black people, you wouldn't have the United States. You'd have Canada.

If one is blue, it likely indicates that they are suffocating. Stop with your damn girly feelings with "liking" them and help dislodge whatever is constricting their airway.

Okay, you people have to get out more.  I'm not a potato. Stop looking at me like that.

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

I just hope Trump doesn't turn into some kind of Berlusconi-esque Teflon man.
