“I was told before leaving England that after living in slave countries all my opinions would be altered; the only alteration I am aware of is forming a much higher estimate of the negro character. It is impossible to see a negro and not feel kindly towards him.”

How condescending.

However, the Bible stated the equality of man long before Darwin.

Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Colossians 3:11 Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.

Now you all are just being obtuse on purpose. Remember, this was 1821 — as I said, this was the height if enlightenment for the time.

And as I said, the fact one part of the Bible decries another doesn’t eliminate the racist parts.

The point is that painting anyone from 200 years ago, much less 4,000 is pointless — EVERYONE was racist (by modern standards).

My points stand unchallenged (as usual).
