“There is not a man living who wishes more sincerely than I do, to see a plan adopted for the abolition of [slavery].” – George Washington (1786)
When you hear the nonsense spouted by the 1619 Project or any of these reverse racism pundits speaking their Marxist/Marcusism punditry, recall that a) slavery was imposed on the then American colonies by Great Britain (that refused to allow these colonies to abolish slavery); (b) that then the American South became dependent on these reduced labor costs for their economy; (c) when things become habitual, it becomes harder to throw off; and (d) it was the blood of white soldiers who threw off the chains of slavery for their black American brothers and sisters. Also, it is worth noting that judging a past age by the moral standards of today is biased, unfair, and consists of little logic or even rationality. The beauty of the human race is that we continue to strive at becoming better. None are perfect. None ever will be perfect. The one man who walked among us who was perfect was Jesus. He was nailed on the cross for that.
