“I congratulate you, my dear friend, on the law of your state [South Carolina] for suspending the importation of slaves, and for the glory you have justly acquired by endeavoring to prevent it for ever. This abomination must have an end, and there is a superior bench reserved in heaven for those who hasten it.”…Thomas Jefferson

“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”…Jesus, John 8:32

 

Slavery did not begin in the United States or original colonies.

It was an accepted condition of being conquered or bought and sold for thousands of years.

If the dumbed down people who are being used by demagogues want reparations, they should petition their African tribesmen and/or the parties who actively traded for them prior to shipment to the US such as the Portuguese, Arabs, etc.

Slavery did not start here. It ended here at the cost of many lives.

And Thomas Jefferson, who was raised in a world that accepted slavery as the norm, condemned it in his original draft of the Declaration of Independence.

“he has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating it’s most sacred rights of life & liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. this piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the CHRISTIAN king of Great Britain. determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce: and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, & murdering the people upon whom he also obtruded them; thus paying off former crimes committed against the liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.”
