Ulysses S. Grant

Now the bright bulbs have toppled a statue of Grant for being a slave owner.  Grant owned one slave , possibly given to him by his father-in-law, and that lasted less than a year. Grant freed him and paid him wages within the year. He owned no other slaves. He briefly and unsuccessfully managed his father in-law’s farm and he worked alongside the few slaves on that farm and refused to punish the slaves, and was said to be too kind and too unhappy with the system if slavery to make them work.

Frederick Douglass said of Grant that he was “a man too broad for prejudice, too humane to despise the humblest, too great to be small at any point. In him the Negro found a protector, the Indian a friend, a vanquished foe a brother, an imperiled nation a savior…”

But the woke know better, of course.
