Our next issue is whether slaves would count as part of the state's population for representation.
Yes, delegate of South Carolina
That makes sense
I believe that slaves should count as part of the population because they are a part of our state so they should be a part of the count for representation.
They treat their slaves like property
I believe that slaves should not count as a part of the population for representation because slave owners don't treat slaves like humans and they don't even get the right to vote so why should they be counted as a part of the population
Yes, delegate of Rhode Island
Taking everyone's opinion into consideration, I have come up with the Three-Fifth Compromise, three of every five slaves would count as a part of the population for representation
That took much longer than I had expected, I guess there was more wrong with the Articles of Confederation than I thought!
