David Barton explains in his book, Jefferson Lies, the truth about Thomas Jefferson. Was he a racist?
Jefferson was not a racist who hated blacks and opposed civil rights, but rather was a lifelong advocate of emancipation. His efforts were largely unsuccessful because of the state in which he lived. If he had been born in a northern state and had undertaken the same efforts, he would have succeeded and would be heralded today as one of America’s greatest civil rights advocates. Even so, he was regularly praised by subsequent generations for his civil rights efforts and was favorably invoked by numerous civil rights leaders, both black and white. Jefferson referenced religious beliefs and teachings as the basis of his views on emancipation and equality, repeatedly declaring that God was just and that He would eventually bring slavery in America to an end, one way or another.

Because we are individuals, we each live a different reality, based on our life experiences, education, and perspective. Strange as it may seem, two people sitting next to each other will perceive the exact same event entirely differently. Because of this it should make sense that we each have an inner world knowledge and perspective specific to only us. Because of this no one can have more authority over what is right for you than you.
We often have the perception that the most important answers to life’s questions come from outside ourselves. This is an erroneous assumption, because of our personal perspective, experience, and desires, only we know the best possible path to pursue.
