Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Andrew Jackson are vilified because they owned slaves during another time in history when slavery is legal. Their statues are removed. DC wants to put up a statue of crack smoking racist Marion Barry. Is this ok?

George wanted to free his slaves, however, it was against the law. Upon his death they were freed.

Do I live in DC? Nope. Do I think Barry deserves a statue? Nope. Will I get butt hurt if DC puts up a statue of Barry? Nope.

I haven’t heard anywhere that statues of George Washington are being removed? As for Marion Barry, the man is a disgrace and should not have a statue!

Recently there was a plaque honoring Washington removed at the church he used to attend because it made some “feel unsafe”.

What if having the plaque removed made you feel unsafe?

I don’t want historical monuments replaced, or the founding fathers vilified. Trying to discredit them seems like a step toward discrediting the Constitution.

I disagree with your initial premise. Washington released *his* salves upon his death and Jefferson ended the American participation in the international slave trade. Jackson has a host of issues that easily put him in the top ten worst presidents in history.

I think you mean the best president, as Andrew Jackson was our best president.

Ah, Marion Berry.
Mayor from 1979-1991.
Caught and served time for crack.
Ran for mayor again.
WON! Again mayor from 1995-1999.

Say what you will, he must have been one heck of a campaigner 😂.

Look at his voters. DC is one of the most corrupt and crime ridden places in the US. They got what they deserved.

Thomas Jefferson was 14 in 1757 when his father died, Mr. Jefferson was informed of his inheritance, in 1764, Thomas Jefferson received that inheritance at age 21.....what would anyone do?.....

Finally, there is the account of a contemporary eye-witness, Jefferson’s plantation overseer, Edmund Bacon. Bacon probably knew better than anyone what went on at Monticello. In an account of his years as Jefferson’s overseer he briefly mentioned the paternity allegations but denied them. He wrote that instead of Jefferson he saw — and here the name is rubbed out of the original manuscript — someone else leaving Sally’s quarters “many a morning” when Bacon “went up to Monticello very early.” His account is difficult to dismiss.

The likely suspect

Who, then, fathered Eston? Like many careful scholars, Mr. Hyland has a prime suspect: the president’s younger brother, Randolph......
