Professor Gregory Spence is absolutely correct, "race" has played a hand-in-hand role in the political and philosophical life in America, and had it not been for the inhumanity of slavery forced upon Africans, America would have never become the economic powerhouse it became. From the very first articles in the Bill of Rights (Articles 1 Section 2(3), Articles 1 Section 9(2), Article 4 Section 2(3))of the U.S. Constitution,the Emancipation Proclamation, and the 13th,14th, and 15th (reconstructive) amendments, "race" has played a quiet but predominant role in the shaping of the nation. America owes an enormous debt to African descendants in America. However, I wholly disagree with Spence's marginalization of Thomas Jefferson. Indeed, Jefferson was a slave owner and pediphile (molested Sally Hemings who was his sister-in-law, aunt of his daughter, and 15 years old) who was forced to sell off some of his slaves to satisfy the debt he owed on his plantation "Montecello". In researching the book "The Constitution and the New Jim Crow", I found that it was Thomas Jefferson who was the first political figure and founding father to openly speak out against the institution of slavery, saw slavery as a barbarous practice, and that the slaves that he owned were in fact bequeathed to him from his parents and upon the death of his wife, Martha Wayles Jefferson. He and Sally Hemings had several children, all of which he "freed", and then "freed" all of the slaves on Montecello in his will. Jefferson had written a biting indictment of slavery in the Declaration of Independence which was removed by the rest of the founding fathers before signing it into law.Read more ›
