    Nope... just a shrewd business person.

    and that somehow makes slavery OK? It was an evil then just as much as it is an evil now. For men supposedly brilliant and far-thinking and possessed of all sorts of noble ideas, their believe that black people belonged to them is more than just ironical. It's shameful.

    The mother of an eight-year-old wants to know why a Tennessee school teacher gave her child a handout from the Nation of Islam that portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as being racists.
    Because, unfortunately, they were. Black people weren't even 2nd class citizens, they were non-citizens, pretty much living property. There is many, many dark avenues in U.S. History and this just happens to be one of them, man. Would you prefer that children be taught lies, omissions and propaganda rather than the raw truth?

    There is nothing wrong with being taught the truth. This pamphlet, however, lies about the truth... to teach the truth.

    ...obviously racism existed... that is, unless you are going to claim that their is no racism in Japan because they use a different word.
    You really didn't know that the term, "racism", wasn't coined until the 1920's, huh?

    What about the Africans that sold the Africans? They're racist, too?
