I haven't figured how we're supposed to change anything that's already happened, so all that's left is to say "tut tut" over Jefferson's sins. Funny how the local Democratic party committees  still call their annual soiree the "Jefferson-Jackson Days Dinner."
“My god! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy? I confess I had no idea of it myself.” Jefferson writing to Madison on America in 1785 while in Paris.

So Jefferson was a human being after all, and not some sort of god.  That he was a less than benevolent slaveowner does not diminish a whit the fact that he played a substantial role in giving us documents - the Declaration of Freedom and the Constitution - that did away with the institution of slavery.

No one in the media has the ability to put history into perspective with the time it occurred.

Frankly... looking at what the black descendents of these people have become I am not certain most were not better off as indentured servants... especially since the majority have become nothing more than indentured to the Democratic Party who uses them for their own means and keeps them mostly in the arms of poverty and the public dole as it suits the means to their ends... some have escaped and proven skin color doesn't matter .. in America anyone who is willing to work hard, get a good education or skill they can have a good life, but too many are willing to collect welfare and stay on the very visible plantation they are on.

The main source of the slave market in Africa came from the Islamists, which we have never acknowledged
