Unauthorized release or introduction of live foreign organisms is illegal and appropriately considered a form of biological pollution. This biological littering of live fish in areas where they do not occur naturally is a serious matter since unlike other forms of pollution it is an act that is generally impossible to reverse, should the fish reproduce and become self-perpetuating.White Society:Planters:
The Planters were few in number, but held most of the South’s wealth. They set the tone in economic and social life. A plantation differed from a farm in its size, use of a large labor force, and that its owners grew a staple crop for profit. Planters had far less leisure time than myth allows. They managed large enterprises. Similarly the plantation mistress had little idle time. She oversaw the house, food, linens, cleaning, clothing, and care-taking of her family and all the slaves. Often planters were absentee owners who left an overseer or other manager in charge of the plantation. Overall, out of a population of 8 million, only 383,637 owned slaves and there were few individuals in 1860 who qualified as planters, owning more than twenty slaves. WHITE DEMOCRATIC PARTYMiddle Class:
Most southerners were in the Middle Class and were considered yeoman farmers, holding only a few acres and living in modest homes and cabins, raising hogs and chickens, and growing corn and cotton. Few yeoman farmers had any slaves and if they did own slaves, it was only one or two. Yeoman farming families owned an average of fifty acres and produced for themselves most of what they needed. These farmers traded farm produce like milk and eggs for needed services such as shoemaking and blacksmithing. Most people in this class admired the planter class and hoped to one day join those ranks. Though only a few held any slaves, almost all middle class southerners supported the slave system because they enjoyed the privileged status that a racially based society bestowed on them, and they feared that they would have to compete with the slaves for land and work if African Americans were free.
