Nothing to see here folks.
It's not the fact that the south was forcing people to work against their will.
It's not that entire black families and the children they had were owned by a slave master.
Its not the fact that slaves were thrown overboard into the cold waters of the ocean if they were sick.
Its not the fact that they were murdered as an entire people.
It's not the fact that slave owners were allowed to buy, trade, and sell people like they were cattle.
It was about tariffs!
Goddamn those tariffs!
