  • How free were "free" blacks in the north?
  • No slavery!
  • The North:
  • You see, when the U.S. became its own country, the northern states abolished slavery.
  • WE'RE FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • The South:
  • Slavery!
  • Your free! You just can't vote, go to our resteraunts,clubs, schools and restrooms. Oh yeah, and you don't get as good of jobs as us!
  • So basically, they weren't free. Thesis:The black people of the north were not truly free because, if the whites and the blacks were not even close to on the same level socially, politically, and economically, I do not consider that free.
