Not only was Washington a slave owner
Your hate Dead Whitey Washington diatribe left out that he freed his slaves at death.

Washington willed that his slaves be freed upon Martha's death, but good point.

I never said I hated Washington. And yes I did, unfortunately, leave out the fact he freed his slaves. I admire Washington, Lee, Jefferson, and Lincoln. My comment was only meant as a historical observation. You ass/u/me that I was on a hate rant and you sir were in error. Do not be so quick to judgement.
As well as he treated them with respect before he died as well. There was always ample food, heat and a roof over their head while they were in his care.
