A legislator in New Hampshire, said this week that American slavery had nothing to do with racism and was just purely about the economy.

Republican state Rep. Werner Horn raised eyebrows in a now-deleted social media post, and insists that those who owned slaves, were not racist and that there was a “business decision.”

The legislator made the remark in response to former state House member Dan Hynes, who criticized President Trump about his tweet, the four freshman members of Congress, all American citizens, are to reported back to their home countries, USA Today.

“If trump is the most racist President in American history, what does that say about all the other presidents that owned slaves?”, Hynes wrote on Facebook.

This Horn is caused to react, to Wait, write “to own slaves does not make you racist…”

Hynes did not respond, and says: “I think”, but added that it is “surprising, because everything else makes someone a racist.”

“It should not be surprising, since a slave was not a decision based on race, but on the economy. It is a business decision.”

The Republican MP said that “it should not be surprising, since a slave was not a decision based on race, but on the economy. It is a business decision.”

“The slavery that was later in the South of the United States is not about the color of the skin of the slaves, but their value as workers on the plantations,” Horn said.

“The United States had the abolitionists, since the start, people thought that slavery was moral, but they were not of the enslavement of black people because they were black. They brought in these people, because they were available.
