    Absolute =/= objective

    So, you don't understand what objective means. Great. How do I deal with this?

    But I couldn't help but notice that you failed to quote half the post you were responding to . you are attempting to spin off of the question. Indicating that you are continuing to lose.
    You've devolved into patting yourself on the back. Good day.

    Well, feel free to answer the question that you conveniently failed to quote

    Yup. Admit defeat and bow out of a subject about which you knew little, but didn't allow that to stop you from pretending to be some kind of expert

    This thread has devolved, predictably, into a pissing match that has little to nothing to do with the OP.

    Bottom line, the pamphlet in question is dishonest and deliberately so. This at least is beyond debate.

    Wait, owning black slaves doesn't make you racist?

    Only when it comes to racism. Otherwise the god-hating communist-loving Left hold a monopoly on moral relativism.

    No one said ALL of the Founders were racist. If memory serves, I think John Adams was quite outspoken about his opposition to slavery (though that doesn't necessarily mean he wasn't a racist). Plenty of qualifications were given, including recorded quotes and actions.

    Africans were viewed as subhuman. Are you really going to argue that isn't racist? REALLY?!

    Is that an attempt to be clever? Might work on a 3rd grader...

    ...obviously racism existed... that is, unless you are going to claim that their is no racism in Japan because they use a different word.
