  •  3/5 person was wrong, regardless of the intent. (0+ / 0-)

    Even if Jackson was correct, it only proves that the Northern states had a paternalistic and condescending attitude towards African Americans, and did not see them as fully equal, either, even if they were "anti-slavery".

    Why can conservatives never admit that America was wrong sometimes in history? Maybe it goes against their theology that America was ordained by God and is a special nation. Errancy would ruin the myth.
