Betsy Ross was a Quaker.
Quakers did not have slaves.
Quakers were instrumental in getting slavery ended both here and the UK. They were abolishionists and mostly the people that ran the underground railway.

But none of that is important, right.
Slavery existed from the beginning of humanity and exists still today. A slavery ring was just broken up in the UK, the slaves were mostly Polish.
If you study Roman times slavery was a fully integrated part of Roman life. It improved the life of everyone slaves and masters. Slaves were important parts of Roman life and were teachers, accountants and managers for their masters. Shouldn’t study Rome, Greece or Egypt anymore.
Boycott the Olympics from now on. No desire to memorialize those Greek athletes anymore. We could call it the Colin Games instead.
Most people don’t know that the Bible has rules governing the proper treatment of slaves. Slaves could be beaten, and as long as they were alive in the morning, it was not a sin against God.
So I guess we should throw the Bible out as well.
My boycott list just keeps getting longer.
