Thomas Jefferson was a conflicted sociopath and a racist serial liar.. see for yourself. He stated he HATED the concept of slavery so he freed 7 of his slaves but he had dozens he DID NOT free! He had lots of children via his ‘female house servant’ slaves – Jefferson was not what you were taught in school..
Thomas Jefferson is remembered as a progressive man who wrote the Declaration of Independence and called slavery an abomination, yet he was also a slaveholder himself who fathered several children by a woman he owned. Martha Teichner reports.
