That's difficult. I really admire MLK but Jefferson was such an inspiration.

Tommy used to be my man. Until I realized he was a hyprocrite.

He was pretty adamant about the "all men are created equal" thing, but he owned slaves. So there's that.

See my comment about Washington. What's more merciful: setting them free to get captured by someone else, or keeping them and treating them as well-loved servants? I'm sorry, those were the only two options.

They could've banned slavery immediately, but they didn't even try, nor did they care for anyone other than white men.

Skar if they had tried to make slavery illegal at that point then the South never would have joined the Union.
