Reflective Essay: Slave Voting In The Southern States

139 Words1 Page
I am from a southern state, so I am for the slaves voting. However, since the only offer we got from the government about slaves is having ⅗ of a person, I had to vote for it. Slaves have seen the world of America and I think they would have a different perspective of the constitution. Also, southern states are packed with slaves and not being allowed to have extra votes is not fair. If the Northern states think slave votes are just like horses voting, they are wrong. Slaves are humans and know how life goes. I wanted to honor them, so I made a contract with a guy and made a promise that when I die, my slaves (all 20 of them) can be freed after 6 years after my death. That is how valuable slaves are.
