    I saw this in a very similar way, how else - otherwise they would have to be counting the blacks, which was not the case. Hannah Geiger

      be "counting" the blacks, which was not the case.

      In the introduction to Democracy in America, Tocqueville states that the
      reason he took the trip to America to study democracy was that in Europe
      there was a trend toward people of non-noble birth becoming part of high
      society without having been born into the aristocratic classes. They rose through
      education and by other means to the point where nobles had no choice but
      to treat them as equals. I assume he's thinking of that when he mentions
      people being "born equal instead of becoming so".
