A Tanka About The '3/5 Compromise' - Poem by Chenou Liu
written for Black History Month, which is celebrated in North America in February
Emory President praised
the three-fifths compromise...
on the backs
of a row of black students
This is 5/5 outrageous
Note: 'The 1787 three-fifths compromise allowed each slave to be counted as three-fifths of a person in determining how much Congressional power the Southern states would have.'
