It was rather strict. The middle colonies were not as reliant on slavery as the South was, but the use of African American slaves still sped up their development process. In t…he Middle Colonies, slaves were more similar to 'indentured servants' than the complete master-slave ownership role most are familiar with due to the South.
It depends on which region. There were many regions where people were opposed to slavery, and some where they accepted it. Slavery was a very contentious and divisive issue, a…nd it contributed
This is a very complicated question. Jews in the south were a small minority in a predominantly Christian part of the country, and many Jews seemed to feel it was best to keep… quiet about social issues or risk being persecuted themselves. There have been a few sources that claimed Jews were widely involved in the slave trade, but these sources have been shown to be biased and inaccurate. However, there is certainly reliable evidence that many southern Jews accepted the social norms of the south, and did not object to slavery; and there were also a small number who did keep slaves. (Jewish historians find this period in history very troubling, and several good books about it have been written. Eli Faber's "Jews, Slaves, and the Slave Trade" might be a good place to start.) Historians, both Jewish and Christian, have noted that while a small number of Jews were participants, most southern Jews were not slave-owners. We also know that some of the Jews who did own slaves were not comfortable with the idea, and arranged for them to be set free after the owner had died. And finally, we know that certain rabbis did speak out against slavery, and risked becoming very unpopular for doing so. However, the truth is that like most southern Christians, southern Jews did not say much in public about slavery, and generally did not take a stand about it one way or the other.
Lincoln was not an abolitionist and was not opposed to slavery where it already existed, he was against the spread of slavery to new territories.
Sometimes ambivalent, often divisive, it was considered a necessary evil by most and a real money-maker by a few. Annapolis became a major slave trading community but by 1860… one half of all African Americans were free because of voluntary manumision.
Yes there was slavery in Delaware for a surprisingly long time. In the early days, the Delaware colony was dominated by the Swedes, and they did have slaves-- but most were na…tives (then called Indians). When the Dutch took over the colony, they brought in slaves from Africa. Sadly, some farmers and plantation owners defended the right to keep slaves, but not everyone agreed. In fact, a strong abolitionist movement emerged in Delaware, and later, the city of Wilmington became a stop on the "Underground Railroad." The debate over slavery became very intense in Delaware during the mid-1700s, but by 1787, slavery was on the way to becoming illegal, as more slaves were being set free. Unfortunately, the process was slow because there was considerable resistance from the owners, who relied on the unpaid labor that blacks provided; however, public sentiment was turning against slavery and a growing number of people were opposed to it. Still, it wasn't until the 1840s that slavery finally came to an end in Delaware.
it is blah blah blah
Slavery was outlawed in the US in 1807. Anything after that was considered contraband.

While it is never a good idea to generalize, studies have shown that large majorities of southern whites accepted slavery. Some even felt it was the right thing, because they …believed that black people (then called "negroes") were inferior and meant to be slaves. But other southern whites were somewhat more ambivalent about it; we know this because even though they kept slaves, they later arranged to set them free. It is also true that the way slaves were treated varied: some owners were harsh and brutal, while others were somewhat more humane. Still, there was little public discussion about whether keeping slaves was ethical, and most southern whites seemed to support slavery as a necessity for running a plantation. Based on newspaper and magazine articles of that time, we can conclude that a large majority of southern whites were in favor of slavery, or if they had their doubts, they were not vocal about them. But it should be noted that there were a few southerners who were opposed to slavery and who did their part to try to end it. Unfortunately, their views were not the dominant ones, so slavery persisted.
the northern and southern states differed in their attitudes toward slavery because the northern states were against slavery while the southern states were all for slavery, in… fact they had slaves. The northern and southern states disagreed about it so much that it caused a war, known as the civil war.
