It absolutely is not. The three fifths compromise was used to tally representation and taxation from each State in Congress, as each States Congressional delegation in the house is determined by population. The Senate, of course, always has 2 Senators per state. Anyway the three fifths compromise counted 3/5ths of the total number of slaves for counting purposes. The 14th amendment, passed after the Civil War, guaranteed citizenship for all persons born in the United States- including former slaves. The 13th amendment was the de facto end of slavery. Since that time, the 3/5ths compromise had been essentially meaningless- as there are no longer "free persons" and "all other persons" that the 3/5ths compromise had been based on.

the three fifths compromise is when the southerners wanted to count their slaves as part of population for profit the northerners wouldn't have it unless they payed taxes but the slaves wuldnt pay taxes. they couldn't, they're slaves! so their owners would have to but the southerners refused! so they came up with the three fifths compromise which is for every five slaves it counts as three normal ppl (for the population) so 1 slave is three fifths a person hence the name

Well, it depends on your perspective.

It would've been fair, if you thought that slaves weren't 100% person, and they didn't count as a whole for the state population.

It couldn't have been fair, if you thought that slaves were as good as anyone else, and the government should count them as a human.

Seriously, it's your opinion, so there's no right or wrong in this question.

No, since slavery has been outlawed the three-fifths compromise has become null and void.
