Kevin Jackson Exposes the Lie of Blacks being 3/5th Human in the Constitution
Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 of the Constitution proclaimed that black people were only worth 3/5th of a human.
It’s as easy to remember as 1-2-3. And Democrats love it!
Sadly, the average black in America is taught that they were valued only as 3/5th a person when the Constitution was written. And it’s true. But even more sad is their ignorance as to why this NEEDED to happen.
On the surface, the idea of making somebody “less” human seems…inhumane, obviously. For others, 3/5ths human is downright scandalous, which is why the term 3/5ths causes such rancor among black Leftists, ergo the uninformed.
This is the one area of the Constitution that black Leftists (and their white slave owners) use to delegitimize the Founding Fathers, calling them and America racist.
In the video below, I explain the idiocy around this notion.
I appeared on the Laura Ingraham Show to discuss Spike Lee’s anti-Trump rant. However, the segment spun out of control when the Leftist I debated decided to discuss off-topic issues.
A man who has made an amazing living in America still suffers from issues of 200+ years ago, and he was happy to explain his disdain for America.
He misinterprets the 3/5ths Compromise, and apparently still has issue with a country that has more than made up for any and all ills it created for blacks.
I call his ideas around the 3/5ths Compromise stupid (and they were). So, the man even warned me that I would be ostracized for saying the 3/5ths Compromise didn’t hurt blacks.
Here’s a tweet from fathead Roland Martin:
Other Black conservatives are telling me how utterly embarrassed they are by @KevinJacksonTBS tonight on @FoxNews @IngrahamAngle. For him to say the 3/5's compromise "gave humanhood to Black people" must have led his history teachers to cuss his name publicly. HE IS CLUELESS.

Understand that Roland and I had an epic twitter battle a while back where he invited me on his show, then promptly uninvited me. His producer “got film” on me, as we say in the fighting world. Thus, the producer decided it was in Roland’s best career interest not to tangle with me.
He hasn’t invited me on his show since. But I digress…
In response to “CLUELESS” me, let me expound upon the real truth behind the 3/5ths Compromise further:
The Three-Fifths Compromise is found in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution, which reads:
Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.
As Constitution.Law explains:
For the most part, those who opposed slavery only wanted to consider the free people of a population, while those in favor wanted to include slaves in the population count. This would provide for slave holders to have many more seats in the House of Representatives and more representation in the Electoral College. Many ratios were considered, such as three-fourths, one-half, and one-quarter. After much debate, it would be James Madison that would suggest the Three-Fifths Compromise. However, the Three-Fifths Compromise would not be adopted until the Constitutional Convention because the Compromise was not approved by all of the states and the Articles of Federation required a unanimous vote.
Now what part of this don’t ignorant Leftists know?
As dumb as Democrats are, they FULLY understand this, at least the white ones do. But they intentionally allow this misrepresentation of the 3/5ths Compromise to persist.
Worse yet, Republicans are too stupid to even attempt to make people realize just how big a lie this is.
Imagine if blacks were to suddenly realize that they were NOT considered 3/5ths a person. But instead realized that the compromise was implemented by what would become the Republican Party to eradicate slavery?! Will somebody say, “Kanye!”?
Simply put, by making blacks 3/5ths of a person, the anti-slavery people insured that the slaveowning, slavery-loving Democrats wouldn’t continue to the practice of slavery forever.
But the framers of the Constitution went further.
Article 1 Section 9 of the United States Constitution protected the slave trade for twenty years. Article 5 said this clause could not be affected by constitutional amendment. Only starting January 1, 1808, could there be a federal law to entirely abolish the international slave trade, although individual states could and did ban it at any time.
The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.
Now the bastards known as Democrats wanted to get around this part of the Constitution. And they cleverly accomplished it.
Democrats decided to make slaves of the children of slaves, ergo continuing the practice of slavery forever.
That attempt to circumvent the Constitution is one of the reasons for the Civil War. The efforts to humanize black people cost ~360,000 Union soldiers their lives.
Now I dare any of the morons on the Left to dispute these facts. Roland…Roland?
