Jefferson was not an evil man. He lived in the society he was part of. He did want to end slavery. He just liked money that slavery made possible.
Like it or not, Slavery was a legal labor option in early America. For backbreaking work in excessive heat and humidity slavery was the only way to economically, "git her done".
Jefferson is complex and paradoxical. He owned human beings,he also wrote the Declaration of Independence.
He had children by one of his slaves, he did not believe in a Christian God.
He purchased half of our national territory.
His greatness is genuine. He just wasn't a MODERN man. Get over it. History should revere him even if he wasn't perfect.
This "woke" stuff is getting too stupid to believe lately.
