They handicapped Jefferson with all this White Guilt bullshit and he still won.

Wow this was poorly done. Frederick Douglas was portrayed as a "black lives matter" activist. His writing depicts him as a religious man whom supports the abolitionist cause through morality. Not "Hey white guy, F@#$ you!"

Loved the initial slow pace when Douglass started his part. Like some sort of Quentin Tarantino character about to fuck someone up.

Just a little sad that this rap became entirely about racism after it. But I guess it isn't so bad to dedicate a single episode to be about that, with mentions in other episodes.
