I think historians have cut him too much slack. Read about his dark side:

"The evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones" - I guess you're a firm believer, seeing all through a prism of racial issues. George Washington owned slaves. That was then, this is now.

I was surprised when I visited Mount Vernon as a youngster and saw George Washington's slave quarters. It destroyed my image of the "Father of our Country".

Some people delight in destroying ANYBODY who doesn't agree with their own principles. You are definitely in that camp.

Then why are you trying to destroy me by calling me a racist?

Actually, I haven't called you that but now that you mention it - you bring it on yourself with your constant harping on the subject.  I'm not disappointed in any of the founding fathers.  They lived in their time, we live in ours.
