  1. It was a comment said in passing. But misunderstanding of the 3/5 compromise always bothers me. Pro slavery people would’ve been happy to count 1 slave as worth 5 white people. Anti slavery people would’ve wanted to count them as 0. It was for the purpose of congressional representation, and slaves weren’t able to vote so why should they be counted for that?
