  1. While one might think that poor whites, unable to afford slaves, would be in favor of abolitionsist movements, this is untrue. Owning a slave was the "Great American Dream" at the time and poor whites maintained the hope that they might one day own slaves. Does this answer your question?

  2. why do the poor whites still want to own slaves if the slaves rebelled and killed their slaveholders?

  3. They viewed slaves as property and the slaves' uprising as a threat to their rights. The slave rebellions only strengthened anti-abolitionist laws and caused slaves to be more easily mistreated.
