THE NNE nd IKE SHOW: Awkward Moments
NNE nd IKE have just release the FIRST episode for the beginning of 2013! These are some examples of what we believe some universal awkward moments are. ENJOY! ;)
In addition, the three-fifths clause had a significant impact on presidential elections. At the Constitutional Convention, Madison said that a direct election of the president “by the people” would be the best system, but he rejected it because slaves could not vote, and thus the Southern states would be at a disadvantage. Instead, Madison came up with the Electoral College, which allocated presidential electors based on the number of members of Congress that each state had. This gave the South a bonus in the Electoral College.
In 1800, Thomas Jefferson, who owned close to 200 slaves at the time, would not have been elected president without the presidential electors created by counting slaves for representation. Even though slavery is long gone, the Electoral College, which allows someone to become president while losing the popular vote, continues to haunt our political system. It is a perverse legacy of slavery and the three-fifths clause in our Constitution.
It’s also interesting to look at how this plays out today and how our electoral system continues to use Black voters and citizens to elect candidates who don’t govern with their interests in mind. Increased voter ID laws, measures to curb voting among minorities, and disproportionately high incarceration rates among Black people under inflated felonious charges work to deprive Black Americans of their voting rights. However, congressional reapportionment and gerrymandering often work to increase districts and redraw district lines by counting Black Americans, increasing the electoral college vote, but our voting laws, in addition to the institutional racism that heavily effects one’s ability to vote, deprive a large amount of Black Americans the vote or the ability to elect representatives who would vote for candidates with their interests in mind in the electoral college.
