You continue to make the illogical leap that some bad people somehow relates to an era or time. We dont have slavery today...we have a pretty good understanding of the development of mankind...and SOME people are still racist assholes.
    The only thing this comment proves is that you're illiterate since you clearly don't understand anything I've said.

If you care so much about this obviously important slavery topic, start a thread on it.
    Oh its VERY relevant...you want to associate people in 1776 with racism and you tie attitudes of slavery and humanity into your definition. So...take it outside of your little simple minded and narrow 13 colony box. Are the current slave owners 'racist'? Are they savages? Are the people they hold savages? Does every society throughout history that held slaves (especially of a different race) qualify as racist?

    I understand far too well what you have said. You are even more silly if you think your simple minded definitions and descriptions of people and attitudes is hard to understand. You present the discussion equivalent of "daddy...how does a computer work?" with the response "why...its "simple" son...you push this little button right here..."

    Sigh...yes...just stick with...'turn it on.' Dont worry about learning how...or why...and dont worry...there will always be a job for you mowing someones lawn or cooking fries. Or you can always live in the basement.

    Indeed, likely not. Genetic proof was not specific enough about *which* Jefferson fathered her children, but likelihood is on that side.
