This essay was written by Thomas Jefferson. He owned slaves, yet in this article, he states all of the things he likes about them and says they should eventually be freed.
My agenda item is, why, in our society, do people feel one way, yet act the complete opposite? In this article, we know Jefferson owns slaves, yet he raves about the things they can do. Why would someone own a slave, aka take advantage of another person and treat them like crap, yet commend them for all they can do?
