      Jefferson, Madison, Lee, et al weren't EVIL white supremacists ... they were NOBLE white supremacists -- at least they were innocent, culturally pre-determined "just don't know any better" white supremacists.

      As of 1789  White Male supremacy was one of the MORE  Self Evident Truths -- perhaps the only  one which Tories and Patriots  (except for a handful of Quakers and austere Congregationalists)  more or less agreed.

      It's not until the 1890s that any significant number of public intellectuals began  suggesting the women should vote, or that (the real life) Frederick Douglas might be the social, political or intellectual equal of (the ficitonal) "Pap Finn".
