The founding fathers were land owning slave owners who said that all men were created equal?

What about the blacks, indians and women?

Were they not created equal?

Thomas Jefferson

George Washington

Benjamin Franklin

James Madison

John Adams

All of them were disgusting capitalist pigs who founded a terrible nation.

    it was a mater of relative evil

    at the time ONLY the aristocracy, Kings and land barons were really "human" the had everything

    the founding fathers was a big step forward . They DID recognize slavery was wrong

    remember at the time EVERYTHING was done byhuman muscle power. Every nation had a system of slave, surf or wage slave

    the rural souther land owners simly refused to give up the only way of existance they could imagin

    women did not get equality until late 1900 and never did get an equalrights amendment

    consider the alternative. Move to Saudi Arabia and see how much freedom for women , blacks and non muslims they have

    Slavery is STILL practiced there

    Well, they founded a hypocritical nation that preached equality while practicing slavery. Fortunately, the Forces of Evil were defeated in the Civil War, and America could finally begin to start the long march to Freedom for All.

    Franklin did not own slaves

    I'm pretty sure neither did Madison or Adams and if they did they would have been house servants which would have been nearly the best status a black could have at the time

    Jefferson slaves by all accounts were treated well and worked closer to share croppers

    Most slaves were treated very well and were considered part of the family. Of course, it's wrong to own humans, but that was the way of the entire world.

    "Roots" was a movie meant to show slavery in its darkest light.

    Read some history. Blacks owned slaves. Blacks were sold into slavery by other blacks. It's over. Done.

    I don't blame you for being disgusted. But USA is not a terrible country just a bit brash and naive at the same time. Kind of like a bull in a china shop. USA starts out doing good things but they end up bad.

    Ya, well, our "terrible nation" turned out to be the greatest nation in the world that everyone wants to come to, and when they're in trouble, we're the first to be there helping them out.

    If ya think it's so bad, go away, stay where you're at.......just bug off.

    The founding fathers were working on the slavery issue to get rid of it. Study about that. Fact.

    Turns out, the slaves wanted to STAY HERE after they were free.

    Then kindly take your view, go rekindle the flame of comradeship, and the luminous beacon of the USSR's glory. Restore it for Stalin

    The USA is the system that works best. Maybe not in the beginning. Even Washington knew he was a flawed man.

  • Agree with they were capitalist pigs and we have attempted to amend that, but now some want to return to the slavery and include all so they are no longer racist about it.
