Default Confederacy Opposed International Slave Trade

Reading "Look Away" by William C. Davis, specifically about the founding of the Confederate States of America ("CSA") in 1861. Basically, the CSA adopted the US Constitution with only a few changes.

One thing that was retained was the US Constitution ban on the international slave trade after 1808. Only South Carolina wanted to re-open the importation of fresh slaves from over seas. All other states were staunchly opposed to this.

In the 1860's, the African Slave trade was still humming along, as African "kangz" (Al Sharpton pronunciation) amassed huge fortunes capturing and enslaving their fellow Africans over seas to the Western Hemisphere and Eastward to the Middle East. Blacks brought to the US before 1808 were not "stolen" or "kidnapped." They were PURCHASED...orignally from '"African kangz."

In 1861, there was no organized opposition to the African slave trade in Africa. THERE WAS ORGANIZED OPPOSITION TO ITS REINTRODUCTION IN THE CONFEDERACY. More Southern White leaders opposed the slave trade than African leaders who grew rich from it.

I don't understand what is your point? If more slaves were imported that would lower the value of the ones owned here. The southern states wanted to expand slavery
so their breeding stock would become more valuable as demand went up. Law of supply and demand. At least that is the way I see it.

SC has always been the red-headed stepchild of the southern states. you can't carry a gun there.

democrats are in favor of the wholesale slaughter of God's most precious; unborn babies.

Why were they opposed to importation? They certainly weren't opposed to slavery.

i stated my point. There was more opposition to the slave trade in the Confederacy than in Africa. African potentates profited from enslaving and exporting their own populations. It was WHITE people who ended slavery, not Africans or Middle Easterners. Saudi Arabia only abolished slavery in 1962(!), and then because of pressure from WHITE countries.

WHITES did not invent slavery. WHITES ended slavery, even though domestic slavery was supported in the Confederate states and in several northern states. Maryland and Delaware were slave states and Utah was a slaver territory.

I believe only 1% of Southerners owned slaves.Slave owners were a huge minority.As much as I detest slavery, it might be a good time to reinstate it temporarily and enslave all liberals until reverse brainwashing could be completed..:tango_face_surpris e

Any Republican not favoring Donald Trump should resign from office and become a Democrat.

You are right White's stopped it but White's started African slave trade making it profitable on a large scale.

Not one of our Founding Fathers could foresee that the importation of the African Nation into these United States would lead to emancipation and the Gimmedat Nation.


Once, a long time ago, they had a value. Now they are worthless, shiftless, endless. They should should be sent back.

That is certainly painting with a broad brush.

Edit: I see your from SC. It wasn't until I spent time in Southern Virginia the last few years that I learned that race relations haven't come along as much as they have in Illinois(outside of Cook Co.)
