I know not what, unless it were the prophet of Tippecanoe, had turned my curiosity to inquiries after the metaphysical science of the Indians, their ecclesiastical establishments, and theological theories; but your letter, written with all the accuracy, perspicuity, and elegance of your youth and middle age, as it has given me great satisfaction, deserves my best thanks. As I have never aimed at making any collection of books upon this subject, I have none of those you have abridged in so concise a manner. Lafitau, Adair, and De Bry were known to me only by name. The opinions of the Indians and their usages, as represented in your obliging letter of the 11th June, appear to me to resemble the platonizing Philo, or the philonizing Plato, more than the genuine system of Judaism.
DuBois on Robert E. Lee Yesterday I shared a brief passage from W. DuBois on Confederate monuments. Below is an short essay from DuBois on Robert E.

The Crisis, Marchv. Lee Each year on the 19th of January there is renewed effort to canonize Robert E. Lee, the greatest confederate general. His personal comeliness, his aristocratic birth and his military prowess all call for the verdict of greatness and genius. But one thing—one terrible fact—militates against this and that is the inescapable truth that Robert E.
Lee led a bloody war to perpetuate slavery. Copperheads like the New York Times may magisterially declare: The South cared only for State Rights as a weapon to defend slavery.
If nationalism had been a stronger defense of the slave system than particularism, the South would have been as nationalistic in as it had been in People do not go to war for abstract theories of government.
They fight for property and privilege and that was what Virginia fought for in the Civil War. And Lee followed Virginia. He followed Virginia not because he particularly loved slavery although he certainly did not hate itbut because he did not have the moral courage to stand against his family and his clan.
Lee hesitated and hung his head in shame because he was asked to lead armies against human progress and Christian decency and did not dare refuse. He surrendered not to Grant, but to Negro Emancipation. Today we can best perpetuate his memory and his nobler traits not by falsifying his moral debacle, but by explaining it to the young white south.
What Lee did inother Lees are doing in They lack the moral courage to stand up for justice to the Negro because of the overwhelming public opinion of their social environment.
Their fathers in the past have condoned lynching and mob violence, just as today they acquiesce in the disfranchisement of educated and worthy black citizens, provide wretchedly inadequate public schools for Negro children and endorse a public treatment of sickness, poverty and crime which disgraces civilization.
It is the punishment of the South that its Robert Lees and Jefferson Davises will always be tall, handsome and well-born.
That their courage will be physical and not moral. That their leadership will be weak compliance with public opinion and never costly and unswerving revolt for justice and right.
Either he knew what slavery meant when he helped maim and murder thousands in its defense, or he did not. If he did not he was a fool.Hypocrisy of Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, has often been accused of racism and double standards.
Jefferson paradoxically emphasized the concept of personal liberty but acted contrary to his own writings.

Your obliging letter of August 16th was presented to me by your son-in-law, Dr. Thomas Ewell, and his amiable lady, your daughter.
Although I was confined with a wounded leg, which is not yet healed, and afflicted with a series of misfortunes, afflictions, and deaths among my tenderest connections, such as rarely happens to any man even in this troublesome world, I was not the less obliged to.
