They WERE cheaper, and thus they WERE used.
It has absolutely nothing to do with race. Do you honestly think a businessman would spend hundreds (alot back then) more for a black slave than a chinese slave because, "I don't much like me none o dem dere black savages" No. He wouldn't. He'd buy the cheaper slaves and keep more profits.
Does not matter what color they happened to be, they were black. The South AGAIN wanted to keep the institution alive, the North did not.
The South got it's ass kicked, end of story.
Try and tell me he is wrong.

"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share.

Tactics: How are we going to conduct the fight? Will we attack, defend, delay, withdraw?
Of course, long after I retired I discovered that the Soviet Union had drawn on Western European experiences to develop those concepts they worked out.
He developed either pneumonia or measles and being too sick was left behind the troops in a battle. Was never heard from again and presumed died or the Yankees got him.
My great-great grandmother in the meantime had the advancing Yankees come through and take all her chickens and food for the Yankee troops.
They suffered miserably from this war. My family wasn't really too much a fan with either side.
