: In fact, implicit in the US Constitution was the notion that "man" did not include other races. When they wrote "all men are created equal" - the founding fathers had a completely different notion of what exactly a "man" is. That's the attrocity.

xxx It is written that "...all men are created equal..." in the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution, BUT the Constitution was written for "we the people," & again, the "people" were the "men" - essentially wealthy, white, & educated males.
