We hold these truths to be self-evident....


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights

So now Thomas Jefferson, the founder of the University of Virginia, the author of the words in the Declaration of Independence which declared that "all men are created equal" has become a symbol for racism in America. How difficult was it to write those words almost 100 years before the Civil War.

A big part of me believes this is a side show; blame the statues, blame the police because they are much easier targets than looking inside at the cultural issues that are the real source of racism.
