Ignorance is...left

From today's Mark Steyn mailbag:

The United States Constitution in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3, classified the black man as 3/5 of a man, requiring five persons to make three voting persons, but at some point in our history, it was changed
So speaketh Andrew Ferguson of Toronto, latest in a long line of left-wingers who apparently wish that blacks were considered 5/5ths of a person.

Oh, wait, that would have been exactly what the slaveowners wanted to keep slavery legal in the U.S. in perpetuity.
The charter can be and should be challenged when difficult topics arise and need further discussion.
Not coincidentally, Andrew's change to Canada's laws to prohibit speech he doesn't like would do the same as increasing the 3/5s ratio: making the country less free, not more.

Incidentally, Andrew Ferguson of Toronto, by saying you wanted the 3/5s compromise removed in favour of a 5/5s compromise, you are advocating the return to the black slave trade. Anybody want to tell this guy that his free speech just ended with his little hate speech diatrabe?
