While we can not deny that many of our founding father’s held the chains of slavery with one hand the other held the the blueprints to set them free. For the founding document’s gave the structure for this despicable act to finally end not just on the battlefields but in one’s heart and soul. As all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness became the foundation for true freedom. Slavery was a cultural of evil passed down from one generation to another until the document’s of freedom laid out a plan to eliminate it. It took way too long with much unnecessary pain, suffering and blood along the way for this to occur but the foundation was set in our earliest years. Tearing down statues will not erase that history but might eliminate the foundations for our freedom today.
