Just posted a FB rant about Thomas Jefferson and my history homework. Just a little disgust in realizing that the ideals of one of our founding fathers is the same ignorant attitude this country has today. I was complaining about how Jefferson thought that America was intended for the whites, because they were more educated, and better able to control themselves, and that slaves and natives were not. My comment was this : “if G*d intended for Captain Whitey to be ruling, and inhabiting North America, we wouldn’t need SPF 8000 just to go outside for 2 hours. “
I immediately got a text saying, “captian whitey?? Really??? if [g*d] wanted brown skinned people to rule anything he would have given them intelligence.”
Wow. thanks for proving my point there, buddy. Intelligence is not determined by your ethnicity, it is determined by your exposure to education, both traditional and otherwise.
