from the above link: Slavery in the North never approached the numbers of the South. It was, numerically, a drop in the bucket compared to the South.

I grew up in the south but recently lived in New York. I have to say that I have never met so many racist people, or heard so much raciest comments, as I did while in New York. The south might have a bad past with racism, but New York certainly has a terrible present.

Mothh, I did not make it up. It's a shame of New York City and they do everything they can to not teach their children about it. *** Americans typically grow up believing that slavery was confined to the cotton fields of the South and that the North was always made up of free states. The fact that slavery was practiced all over the early United States often comes as a shock to people in places like New York, where the myth of the free North has been surprisingly durable. The truth is that New York was at one time a center of the slave trade, with more black people enslaved than any other city in the country, with the possible exception of Charleston, S.C. New York's central position in the slave trade was partially exposed in 1991, when workers excavating for an office tower in Lower Manhattan uncovered a long-forgotten burial ground that may have originally spread for as much as a mile. It served as the final resting place for thousands of enslaved New Yorkers.

Among the bodies exhumed and examined, about 40 percent were of children under the age of 15; the most common cause of death was malnutrition. Some enslaved mothers appear to have committed infanticide, rather than bringing their children into what was clearly a hellish environment. Adults typically died of hard labor, dumped into their graves by owners who simply went out and bought more slaves. Slavery was no less brutal in New York than in the South - and just as pervasive. At one point, about four in 10 New York households owned human beings. The free human labor that ran the city's most gracious homes also helped to build its early infrastructure and supplied the muscle needed by the beef, grain and shipping interests, which forestalled emancipation until 1827 - making New York among the last Northern states to abolish slavery.

I'll bet our resident expert on everything, Mister RyogaVee will claim that this truth is actually part of a conspiracy by southerners.

Now another blue-blooded institution--the New-York Historical Society--has joined this important public engagement with our past by mounting an ambitious exhibition, "Slavery in New York." To all those who think slavery was a "Southern thing," think again. In 1703, 42 percent of New York's households had slaves, much more than Philadelphia and Boston combined. Among the colonies' cities, only Charleston, South Carolina, had more *** (source: http://www.thenation.com/doc/20051107/slavery_in_new_york) *** NEW YORK, NY – June 14, 2005 – In October 2005, the New-York Historical Society (N-YHS) will open a landmark exhibition on slavery and its impact on the people, landscape, institutions and economy of New York, and the nation. The extraordinary multi-media exhibit, SLAVERY IN NEW YORK, will reveal history most New Yorkers are unaware of.

“It’s time for a broader understanding of slavery’s meaning to this city’s past and present,” says Dr. Louise Mirrer, N-YHS President and CEO. “The exhibit will promote public awareness of an issue whose legacy is still felt in this country.”

Slavery was a key institution in the development of New York, from its formative years as a Dutch and British colony to the early days of the United States. New Yorkers traded in slaves, distributed slaves, insured slave ships and owned slaves. At one time, 40 percent of New York City’s households owned slaves. At the time of the Revolution there were more slaves in New York than in any other city except Charleston, South Carolina.

Wow, if you think that's poetry you need a better education. Thanks for calling me a 'faggot'. I hope it helps you to better deal with your own obvious issues.

MBI, do you seriously think anyone would care enough to read that?
11 years ago
Not really. I just posted it because some poeple might actually want to know the real truth about slavery in the U.S. - I understand many of the poeple here need to cling to their false information and that's ok with me. I was just laying out the facts for anybody who wished to learn something. Knowlege is power, ignorance is bliss and most people would give anything for bliss. ;)

MBI, with the exception of a few sentences everything you posted above just proves that there were slaves in New York at some point in time. I think everybody knows that. But to say that the south gets a bad rap on their position of slavery is wrong. The entire Civil War was started because of this. Most northern states had already become free states by that time. In addition, New York was and still is one of the most heavily populated areas, so it would make sense that they would have more slaves at one point in time. Proving a northern state had slaves doesn't make the southern states any more innocent.

^^If I remember last year's social studies lesson correctly, the politicians actually didin't give a rat's ass about the slaves. They just told the people that they were the "rightous" liberators to get more support for the war. I forget what it was really about... but who cares?!

Oh man this takes me way back. This was in some sort of comic book like Archie or Richie Rich. The whole purpose of this test was to tell kids you can dislike things like alligators and spiders but not people based on ethnicity. Definitley remember this going back like 30+ years ago. Had older relatives with lots of comics.

You learned history from Mr. Rogers? The Civil War began with a dispute over the tenth Amendment – States Rights. Specifically, whether or not the federal government could impose taxes that would make the south sell cotton to northern textile mills rather than Great Britain. Slavery became the ‘focus’ after riots erupted in northern cities over Lincoln’s instituting the draft and the first income tax. Even the 14th, 15th, and 16th Amendment had more than slavery. Clue: Lincoln was a Republican
