    Your knowledge of government and slavery in the United States--what does the Constitution say today?

    I have an interview project in hand, so this is an unofficial poll, hoping to get a feel for just how common "common knowledge" really is. I do expect people on this board to be better informed than the average, but I'm still interested to see what the results will be.

    Thanks so much for your help, if you choose to participate!

    Edited to add (from below)--to clear confusion up, I hope:

    It's not a trick question. Simply, do you (if a US citizen) know the Constitutional status of slavery in the United States today?

    Also edited in from below: This is not statistical information being included in the interview--I'm merely trying to get a sense for what readers may know or not know, and how I can shape the interview to best meet their needs for information.
