Why did the Constitution allow slavery to continue, if the Declaration of Independence claimed that "all men are created equal"?
The constitution allowed slavery to continue because it helps make money. They believed that all rich white men are created equal and they all rights but black men who were slaves did not have any rights or whatsoever. Most of the documents that we read said that slavery was not a problem, and that everything was going well, and they were making money. The Meaning of all men are equal means, all white rich men are created equal, they did not consider the slaves as people. On the document, almost very man said that it was not a problem and it should not be banned. In conclusion they allowed slavery because theye were winning plenty of money.
