What are all those names behind the Thomas Jefferson statute?
Uh, those are all the names of all the slaves he's owned.
But he didn't really own slaves, right?
Yes he did.
But just pretending, right?
But how come somebody who owned slaves got to be President?
Other people owned slaves too, and they voted for him.
How come the slaves didn't vote against me?
Well, they couldn't vote.
They had to work without money AND THEY COULDN'T VOTE?
