What your socialist public school teacher did not teach your child about slavery in the U.S


One of the most disingenuous practices engaged in by government school teachers when teaching impressionable grade school children about the sin of slavery in the United States, is to avoid the significant fact that our founding fathers did not bring slavery to America. If one wants to pin the sin of slavery in America upon someone, it ought to be attributed to King James 1, who made Jamestown, Virginia, an official crown colony in 1624. The historical fact is, of the 13 original colonies, Virginia’s, Jamestown, created with the permission of King James l, was the most instrumental in developing and expanding slavery in America.

Now, what about our founding fathers, who were victorious in the Revolutionary War; responsible for ending British rule in North America; declared America’s independence on July 4th, 1776; and then, on September 9th, 1776, the Continental Congress officially declared the new nation to be the “United States” of America? What did our founding fathers do with their newly found freedom and with regard to the sin of slavery?

After the Revolutionary War and the American people gained their independence from British Rule, [the real culprit of slavery on American soil] the people within a number of the states, exercising their newly found freedom, quickly moved to share the blessings of liberty to all by abolishing slavery! For example, the people of Vermont took the following immediate action in its 1777 declaration of rights, which declared "no… person born in this country, or brought here over sea, ought to be holden by law to serve any person as a servant, slave, or apprentice".

Likewise, the Massachusetts constitution of 1780 declared that "all men are born free and equal" and it was used by the court a few years after its adoption to legally forbid any person to be held as a slave.

And, in 1787, the Northwest Ordinance, adopted before our existing Constitution was ratified, stated: "there shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude in the said Territory, otherwise than in the punishment of crimes whereof the party shall have been duly convicted."

By the year 1788 all the states north of Maryland, except New York and New Jersey, had legislated to extinguish slavery, and by 1804 the remaining two northern states [ N.Y. and N.J.] had put slavery to rest!

Additionally let us remember that our Constitution also provided a measure to tax slavery into extinction [Article 1, Section 9, Cl. 1],

“The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a Tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.”

Our Constitution also denied slave-holding states full representation in Congress under Article 1, Section 2, Cl. 3.

“Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.”

Contrary to the communist/socialist propaganda taught to impressionable grade school children by government school teachers, that the above provision made blacks “three fifths of a person”, the provision was actually a punishment which denied full representation in Congress to slave holding states.

The truth is, our nation’s founding fathers, and the miracle they created call the Constitution of the United States ___ that document which our communist/socialist propagandists in government operated schools teach our children is responsible for the sin of slavery in America ___ actually provided the means necessary to end the sin of British slavery in the United States.

Let us also never forget that our wise founding fathers provided Article V in our Constitution, its amendment process, to accommodate peaceful change for changing times. And, the good people of the United States took advantage of that process to lawfully put slavery to rest when they adopted the Thirteenth Amendment.


Our country is infested with a Fifth Column movement at MSNBC, NEW YORK TIMES, CNN, WASHINGTON POST, ATLANTIC MAGAZINE, New York Daily News, Time, ETC., and their countless Yellow Journalists, who work hand in hand with the Democrat Party socialist/communist leadership to paralyze and destroy our free market, free enterprise system.

Liberal-socialist teachers are enamored with the 1A, it’s the vehicle that allows them to fill impressionable students minds with BS, trash America and say it’s ok to burn the American Flag. These same “educators” armed with the 1A vilify the 2A. Details and finer points of the remainder of the US Constitution to them are insignificant.

So, getting legislative power and weighted returns in the EC was a “punishment”?

Can you link to a school text that states the founding fathers were responsible for bringing slavery to America?


Can you link to one that contains the facts in the OP?

The Op is making the claim not me. Therefore the onus is on the OP to provide proof of what he is alleging otherwise its just another BS OP based in fantasyland.

Jesus when’s the last time you guys have actual contact with a school curriculum.


Yes, yes. Your participation in and perpetuation of a particular sin isn’t a sin in and of itself :roll_eyes:

This is such a weak excuse. “We didnt outlaw man stealing and we participated in it, but we made the option available to you. So we’re good.”

Name one other abominable practice where the above even approximates a reasonable justification for blatant abuse of the imago Dei.


Are you suggesting grade school children are not given the impression that our founders embraced slavery when they emphasize, Jefferson, Washington, James Madison, etc. all had slaves? What is ignored is, just prior to the Revolutionary War the above founding fathers and their slaves were living under the heel of King George, which Jefferson blamed the institution of slavery on in the Declaration of Independence.


The Declaration is a piece of Propaganda.

Jefferson was doth complaining a little too much about the state of slavery while he was profiting greatly from it’s existence.


Are you suggesting Jefferson didnt have the ability to free his slaves and stop siring illegitimate children through them?


Why did you take what I wrote out of context? What I wrote was:

What is ignored is, just prior to the Revolutionary War the above founding fathers and their slaves were living under the heel of King George, which Jefferson blamed the institution of slavery on in the Declaration of Independence.

Hey look the “the Irish were really slaves too” thing is metastasizing.

I thought it was the “other people are bad, therefore our guys are OK” argument.

Either way…it can’t be long now until we have a resurgence of posts about how slaves had it so good in so many ways…like in the old days of the board.

It wasn’t taken out of context. It was put into context.

Jefferson blaming King George for slavery while continuing to profit off the institution doesn’t ring hollow to you?

What am I saying?

Of course it doesn’t.

So, what is the thrust of the argument, here? The Brits embedded slavery.

Okay. Then, a bunch of people who were British, and many of them landed Cavalier gentry, had a tax spat that mostly killed the poors.

Afterward, did the formerly British plantation owners end slavery, with their newly wrought control of a third of a continent?

Mhm. Did the above somehow impede Jefferson from freeing his slaves and ceasing to sire children through them?

Don’t hate the player…hate the game right?
