They also refuse to admit that the VAST majority of slaves brought to North America were captured by rival African tribes and sold into slavery, not captured by whites. They also refuse to admit that had they remained in Africa, they would have been slaves to other tribes that would've treated them far worse than the southern plantation owners who regarded them as valuable property. The Constitution called for the end of the importation of slaves within a set number of years. It also prevented the Slave states from having enough votes in Congress to prevent slavery from ever being overturned.
