Different opnion about slavery.

Post by DeShawn the gangster on Tue Jun 19, 2018 6:29 pm

Southerners used to use slaves for working. They forced them to work in their plantation. They earned a lots of money as selling cotton, tobacco and corn. They knew that if they lost slaves, they could not earn lots of money as like before. So they wanted to keep slavery. But northern area had many factories and city. So they need less slaves than southerners. They could make money without slaves. So that was why southerners need to keep slavery and northerners opposed the slavery. It was a controversial problem at that time. Also after the Civil War, the slavery problem was not solved. The thirteenth amendment was even passed.

At that time, most South area was rural area, so most of them have huge land and farms. They have to work in that huge farm and actually it was impossible to raise crops only with their own power. They earn a lot of money with plantation especially cotton, sugar cane, and tobacco. So they need slavers to cultivate the plantation crops effectively. However Northeners did not need a slavery, because they only needed capitals for operating factories of plant. These are the reason why Southerners adamant and Northeners abolish about keeping slavery.

I agree with DeShawn's opinion. At that time, Southerners earned a lot of money with plantation as selling cotton, tobacco and corn. So they need slaves. Also it was true that they were forced to work in owner's plantation farm. However, I don't agree with your last sentence. I think after Abraham Lincoln declared the thirteen amendment, slavery problem was solved officially.

Most of the farms in South America were farms, and most of North America was factories, not farms.It took a lot of labor and a lot of effort to work on the farm and bought black slaves and used them permanently because of the huge drop in profits of white people.But in North America, the sense that all were equal was primary, and that was why slaves were liberated.The emancipation of slaves could have occurred sooner if South America had not been able to host large farms or livestock.

North Americans did not hate South America, and although they needed money, there were cities that used slavery.I ignored it. Because while North Americans learned a lot about writing and education, South Americans tended to ignore it because they did not learn it.The disagreement over slavery was not narrowed, and eventually it went to war.

Min oh

In the South slavers were necessary for them to make money. There were lots of plantation in the South. Each plantation needed laborers to work. Since they used slaves it was economically good for the South. If the master buy slaves he could use them forever. Also if slaves had a child they could be slave and save money. Once they buy slaves it was almost infinite ‘properties’ for plantation owners. On the other hand, using paid workers required more money than using slaves and it was hard to control them. The South could stop using slaves because their systems were mostly with slaves.

I agree that if they lose slaves Southerner could not make enough money than before. However I think main reason is that they could not understand because they used slaves for a long time and also slaves were part of their plantation system. They had no plan if slaves were free. I think mostly Southerner thought, freeing slaves doesn’t make any senses.

I don't understand your opinion. Yesterday we learned. They had a hard time after passing 13th amendment. Also after Lincoln died, slavery was made again. Democrats made that. It was a slavery. They just changed name of slavery. As a result, after passing 13th amendment, there had a slavery named, black codes

Post by SJ_blackpanther on Wed Jun 20, 2018 8:27 am

At that time, they had different jobs and works between the North and South. Usually northerners were worked on a factory to make manufactured goods. So they did not need many slaves for work on a factory. Because all laborers were needed only whites and it was fully okay to them. However, southerners were worked on a farm usually. They had a lot of plantation. For this, they needed a workers as much as they could have. And the slaves were working on a farm. This different opinion made slaves needed, so South of course, needed to keep slaves.

I agree that the different of using slaves made different uses of slaves. North were not needed much about their work and South were totally needed a laborers. That is why people had conflict about using slaves and ruling them.

Northern states were origin of the liberty and southern states were origin of huge slavery. Basicaly they make thier own life in different method. So the slavery was radical problems of the USA. Since the USA declared the independence from England, there was conflict between northerners and southerners about slavery. While the USA made an effort for expand thier boudary of land, they consitantly stand agianst and argue for making new lands to non-slavery states or slavery states. And this conflict induced war called civil war between southerners and northerners. Even if the war was ended, the problem of slavery was not solved and this problems are surviving until now.

Rely to Desawn
Yes, Southerners have method for making their lifes and Northerners definitely needed plantation for thier own life. Becuase thier life styles between northerners and southerners were different, the problems of slavery can not be solved easily and it is surviving until now with raicism.
