    Considering he never had relations with Sally Hemmings, he definitely didn't "technically" rape her either. DNA proved that he never fathered a single child with Hemmings. He was completely exonerated.

    All a non-issue, since blacks as a people, even former slaves, weren't opposed to slavery or racism for that matter, and it is still alive and well in Africa today.

    Human Trafficking & Modern-day Slavery in Liberia

    Just ignore the ridiculous nonsense about them 'learning it all from Whitey'; they're just injecting some PC garbage for appearances sake.

    It's like having to listen to Nazis complain about fascism, utterly ridiculous.

    “ Fun Reconstruction Facts”

    p.560, Ordeal By Fire – The Civil War and Reconstruction - James McPherson, Knopf, 1982.

    ... and on and on. Only the mentally retarded think that just because some 'minority' was oppressed somewhere they were hapless innocent victims and possessed of some sort of 'moral authority' and their 'oppressors' ancestors owe them something 'special'.

    here's an appropriate approach to the study of history:

    TRIGGER WARNING FOR SNOWFLAKES!!! COVER YOUR EYES AND LEAVE THE ROOM!!!! ...

    And here is what bothers me so much about modern "scholarship." At what point did history become ethics? Why should we subvert the elusive search for facts to moralist concerns? So what if they are on or off the hook? If you want to be a preacher, go preach. If you want to save the world, go into politics. If you want to invent a world free of evil, take Prozac. It was said in Ecclesiastes and it still is true today, people suck. They did then, all of them. They do now, all of us. History is the history of self-interested, competing, aggressive, selfish, murderous humans. At what point did it become a morality play? -Dave WIlliams, George Mason Univ.

    That's not the 1807 anti-slavery trade clause cited above by Brambo and highlighted above by me. Would you like to try again?

    Brambo clearly stated above that the U.S. Constitution "included the 1807 anti-slavery clause". I said it didn't and never has. Was that a deliberate attempt by you to be disingenuous and protect your precious progressive ideology from being exposed or was that your inability to read and understand what was written by all parties?

    Nope.

    The Thomas Jefferson Foundation- which runs Montecello said the evidence points to Jefferson fathering Hemmings children- here is from the website

    Shortly after the DNA test results were released in November 1998, the Thomas Jefferson Foundation formed a research committee consisting of nine members of the foundation staff, including four with Ph.D.s. In January 2000, the committee reported that the weight of all known evidence--from the DNA study, original documents, written and oral historical accounts, and statistical data--indicated a high probability that Thomas Jefferson was the father of Eston Hemings, and that he was likely the father of all six of Sally Hemings's children listed in Monticello records--Harriet (born 1795; died in infancy); Beverly (born 1798); an unnamed daughter (born 1799; died in infancy); Harriet (born 1801); Madison (born 1805); and Eston (born 1808).

    Since then, a committee commissioned by the Thomas Jefferson Heritage Society, after reviewing essentially the same material, reached different conclusions, namely that Sally Hemings was only a minor figure in Thomas Jefferson's life and that it is very unlikely he fathered any of her children. This committee also suggested in its report, issued in April 2001 and revised in 2011, that Jefferson's younger brother Randolph (1755-1815) was more likely the father of at least some of Sally Hemings's children.

    Its funny, although you shown plenty of emotion you haven't presented anything other than that. What "actually occurred" in history? Hell, who knows...you sure forgot to mention it.

    Property | Thomas Jefferson's Monticello
    During his lifetime, Jefferson freed two enslaved men. At his death, Jefferson bequeathed freedom to five men in his will.

    So you think Thomas Jefferson broke the law when he freed two slaves?

    It's clear Jake owes us all reparations for his ridiculous infantile trolling. $3 million apiece should cover the first installment.

    Complete progressive nonsense. Here is how a slabs could consent to sex:

    Owner: "Would you like to have sex"?

    Slave: "Sure!"

    Boom! Consent.
