regarding the slave laws of Virginia

Posted by rccaahistory on October 5, 2009

Looking at these laws it seems quite easy to see how racial seperation could become a part of the American society. From the consequences outlined in this document it is conceivable that the intial form of segregation could have simply been the result of the general desire to avoid being made to pay enormous fines or live as an indentured servant. I think that this document shows the importance of examining the possible effects on future American society from modern legislation.
