True Lack Of Color

George Washington has been revered as the Father of this Country for decades. The Virginian planter and his wife owned 318 slaves. The victor over the British forces has always been painted full-white, however the climate was deadly to white women. Whites exercised droit seigneur over the chattel women and girls.

The races mixed in blood.

Families were not pure.

Not everyone white was white.

And no one should have been a slave.

Except in paintings.

Even the Father of the Nation.
