Sigh... Of course it is, to us today. But they didn't keep slaves because they thought abusing Africans was fun (though some of them might.) They kept slaves because free labor was a massive benefit to their economy and having to give it up was going to cost them a lot. That's why they tried to leave the union, to keep that economic benefit.
