    Americans built their country on stolen land with the use of slaves, they didn't really care about any of that stuff. It was all just big talk to make their hissy fit over having to pay taxes seem more justified

    Abstract ideals championed in the face of practical constraints. Jefferson didn't like slavery but not like he would wave a magic wand to change things. Like if he freed his own slaves, then what? Where the fuck do they go? Not like they could freely move and do whatever they liked in the late 18th century/early 19th century United States, be it South or North

    Just because in principle all men are equal doesn't mean that they want you join into their community.
    It's like how you might believe in religious freedom, but still would agree with chasing moneylenders from your temple.

    I hate to break it to you, but Jefferson talked about anti-monarchism, not race

    It's really fucking simple
    >Africans weren't considered human
    Voltaire, Kant, Hegel, and Hume are all major Enlightenment era Philosophers who were also all super racist and literally refer to Africans as separate species from "Man" (i.e Europeans).
    Voltaire's critiques of the Bible and Christianity included him making fun of the biblical belief that all humans were related and shared common ancestry. He thought that Africans evolved separately.

    Turns out most people don't actually care about morals, they just selectively use them to feel good about themselves.

    Equality and citizenship are two completely different concepts that nobody had trouble dissociating for thousands upon thousands of years until modern day propaganda. If the distinction between citizens and non-citizens incurs a difference in being given equal judicial fairness on a personal level then the specific law causing this disparity is a problem, the existence of citizenship criteria is still an irrelevant unrelated issue.

    It was a dig at the king. Obviously people aren't equal.
