Thomas Jefferson: The Face of a Rapist

Thomas Jefferson: The Face of a Rapist

There are 1131 comments on the www.womanist-musings.com story from Aug 20, 2009, titled Thomas Jefferson: The Face of a Rapist. In it, www.womanist-musings.com reports that:

Americans look at Thomas Jefferson and see the one of the authors of the Declaration of Independence, a statesman, a former president and one of the founding fathers,' however; when I look at him, I see the face of a rapist.

Jefferson may have felt love for Sally but how can we possibly term this relationship a love affair? Once they returned to the US, he had the power to have her flogged, or even put to death. At anytime he could have sold her children away from her. For a relationship based in love to exist, both parties must be equal and due to the power differential between Jefferson and Hemings what occurred cannot be described as anything other than rape. Some have even had the nerve to refer to Hemings as the first Black first lady of the United States as a way of further legitimizing the relationship between the two, however; to sanitize it and call it anything other than rape, is to once again violate her spirit.

Jefferson was not the first or last White man to sneak into the slave cabins. One of the reasons White women argued so vehemently for the abolition of slavery, was to save the poor overwhelmed White man from the negro temptress. It was not uncommon to see near white or light skinned children resembling the master working on the plantation. The Black woman was and still is blamed for her own rape. Victim blaming began with women of color and continues to this day.

Institutionalized SLAVERY IN AMERICA??? NOW?? I think not. So easy to blame America and America is the great SATAN. BORING... If people have a problem with us, try living somewhere else for a while. Maybe be a Christian in Saudi Arabia, or go live in Darfur, or Myanmar those places sound like fun. Yes we have our problems, but Americans give more $$$$ each year to global charities than any other country by far, we as a people are the most generous on the planet. "you white people" NICE. Between race and religion this world will never see rainbows and lollipops

Nuttin changed either, except for this time you got some lost slave breeding black women so ashame of their skin color, hair, genes, and natural beauty, that they are whoring themselves out to any man with lightness,some stringy or curly cave haira smile and money, so that they can dilute down our race, and pop out a cracker.
Thats the true damage that enslavement has done to the psyche of the black community, self-hate and hatred for self and other black men and women.
And here you had a prseident that owned slaves and raped em and is one of these crackers most revered statesmen....LOL....smh
Black Love,Unity And Power, Is The Only Future....

But that's not their fault ,that's YOUR fault Homey because you and you alone haven't been able to provide security for your family so them Black Women want to get with a guy that will provide it for them in way WAY YOU NEVER COULD !

He was a pedophile and a rapist. Sally hemmings herself was the product of rape being jefferson's wife half sister. Evil doesn't decrease with time. Evil then evil now. He was a hypocrite who owned slaves also evil. Only whites and poisoned blacks with a vested interest in white supremacy argue different. And before you defend this souless garbage who is burning in hell would you want your child at the age of 13 banging someone who owed her. This is the typical hero of white america being fed lies to honor a child rapist.

Well how do you explain the 13 year olds living on welfare getting "banged out" everyday in a teneament on MLK boulevard in every major city in this nation? Is that the white mans fault too?

Maybe Sally was in love with a great man and proud to have his kid. You were not there. Are you saying if you were in jail and Jennifer Anniston was the warden you woudn't tap that?

A more relaistic view is that she did not love him. She did not love him because he was too stingy, oprresive and unjust to free her.
