    Of course I do, but we don't deny it and are ashamed of it....unlike the Tea Partiers. Also, why are you attacking other people's countries? Did I deny that slavery didn't exist in our country before?

    You live in South Korea, and don't already know that your neighbors to the north are slaves of the government?

    How can that be?

    England...not the Colonies. Any other case broguht before the colonial commonwealth? Cuz...Im still seeing Johnson as the landmark slave possession case here.

    And it gets to the point though...right? We are talking the 1600s...not 1776 and the founding fathers so you accept (rightfully so) that the institution of slavery practiced everywhere else was naturally and logically in place at the formation of the US and not some by-product of the evil founding fathers...right?

    I dont excuse it justify it, nor frankly care about it. Slavery was a product of the worlds history. This inane focus on American slavery and the founding fathers is stupid. Teach it all. And its beyond comical that you wade in on a discussion about slavery in America, then when it is pointed out that your own folk engaged in the same behavior you bleat about some 'attack'.

    Haha. No. At this point in history, if a slave is legal in England, it's legal in the colonies and vise versa.

    Why wouldn't you want a more well-rounded education on the people who founded this country?
    Mellie, stop excusing the actions of Jefferson and other founders. He owned slaves and had children with them... regardless if he thought slavery was wrong or not... if he changed his mind or not. The fact is, he owned slaves and treated them like second class citizens and built his house in manner that he could not even see them while they preformed their slave duties. They were his own children and part of his own family... That is pretty damn disgusting. Stop ignoring **** like that.
