You will assume the role of an individual opposed to slavery,
The following is a statement from the social theorist George Fitzhugh. Each of you should post a statement in support, or in opposition to Fitzhugh’s argument. Your submission should be a minimum of 600 words in length. Try not to make assumptions. Instead, assume the historical role of someone who lived in the United States in the period prior to the Civil War. Not all Northerners opposed slavery, and not all Southerners favored it. You could be a plantation owner, a slave trader, or a Southern politician. Conversely, you can be an abolitionist, a Northern politician, or even a slave. Be creative.
