The RNC sent out this twitter update Thursday bashing Obama for calling the original constitution deeply flawed. Of course, they left out this important part:
A September 6, 2001 program called “Slavery and the Constitution” on WBEZ Chicago…. Obama explained that the “fundamental flaw” [in the Constitution] was [that] “Africans at the time were not considered as part of the polity that was of concern to the framers.” In addition, the framers did not “see…it as a moral problem involving persons of moral worth.”
My name is Phillip Allen, and I too think the constitution was deeply flawed.
