[inaudible conversations] >> sure, please. >> this is a really quick response to this. i'm a historian, so i think about these things in the long term. so we all talk about a three-fifths compromise, we know what that is in the constitution, that the slave population would be counted as three-fifths of a person in the house of representatives. the three-fifths compromise was undone by the 14th amendment, ratified 1868 so that every individual who's born in this country is a full citizen, and it was undoing of the three-fifths compromise, it was also undoing the dred scott decision of 1857. so what happened out of this? this was an attempt by northern republicans to between the. 14th and 15th amendments to create a new political class in the south, and that's out of the newly-emancipated black people that would be a check, an electoral political check on the political power of southern democrats who had torn the
