Blog Entry #2 Slavery and the Founders

We did not really get to discuss Slavery and the Founding Fathers today but there was plenty of intersting information. When analyzing slavery itself, I found it interesting to learn about the historical context of slavery in the world before the foundation of the US or even the colonies. The next interesting concept was Dr. Paul Finkelman’s assertion the racism started on July 4, 1776. This was a new notion to me and one that I will mull over in the coming weeks. I am not sure I can draw the straight line between Jefferson’s Notes on the State of Virginia and Hitler’s Mein Kampf but it still worth thinking about. Finally, Dr. Finkelman's general point about the power of thought and ideas will be worth impressing on my students.
