Firstly, in order to have an unbiased understanding of the historic compromise one must purge their mind of the propaganda that has been indoctrinating our children in public and private schools across America. As your lying history teacher no doubt told you, the Three-Fifths Compromise was a shameless attempt by the southern states to claim their "slaves" as legal residents for the purposes of proportionate representation in the federal government by a ratio of 3/5 for each slave vs 1 white resident. This tale has been told by the academic community for countless years and has been used to undermine the long history of civil rights progressivism that is the true legacy of the American south.
This lie is a perfect demonstration of exactly why one cannot understate the importance of The Historical Revisionist Society of America, who have sworn to combat this and other examples of sheer ignorance that have perpetrated disdain for the true American superiority worldwide. The truth about the Three-Fifths Compromise is a much more endearing and patriotic story.
It is true that millions of black African workers had travelled to the United States as part of a labor treaty that had been cleverly negotiated by none other than noted human rights activist Thomas Jefferson (whose then-controversial marriage to his soulmate Sally Hemmings later helped bridge the cultural divide between their perspective ethnicities when she became America's first black first lady after Jefferson was elected the third President of the United States). But there was little regulation on the working conditions of the day, and the clerical jobs that were commonly staffed by African workers had little benefits or opportunity for upward mobility, and wages were sadly lacking due to economic conditions. But Jefferson and others within the burgeoning American government were not about to allow these injustices to continue unabated.
