      Thomas Jefferson looks like Rodney Sedgwick of Orange Virginia (Benny Sedgwick grantor of Orange Municipal Office Bldg and owner of Sedgwick Lumber (what is in the box? Open it and find out! "Fuck you, I quit" (me))

      The United States of America 🇺🇸 history is confirmed in Hell. They can get that without taking so much space on earth.

      I did not know America had no leaders of consequence as a child. I thought they had principles, they did not have them at any age.

      God of Heaven will dissolve America in his time to save the World as a Miracle in Jesus Christ from their unlimited money against his will and trust.

      Not exactly Zarathustra or Zorasta but true also.

      My book report in 8th Grade with Mrs Bodine and Mrs Bowman Favored Fredrick Douglass (Ruth Green Winston, Society Editor of the Richmond Times (daughter of Andrew, sister of Tetesea and Janet and Butch Waco was mad at me pulling on her training bras in the seat in front of me)

                    So just to be clear, the black man's problem with the white man was that he never married the mother of his children? how ironic.

                            For the Record, Thomas Jefferson was a devout Religious Man and never told anyone of his beliefs and allowed people to assume he was Racist.
                            He was actually against Racism and Slavery and tried to end it.

                                Rap aside, Thomas Jefferson deserves more attention and respect from everyday people

                                    Did they fact check? Cause his will said for all his slaves to be set free, it was his wife who went to court and fought the will that made it so they never were...dumb bitch

                                            One of the best ERB... Best rap and delivery first part of Jefferson... but then it swinged to the burning of racism, and FD had some good punchlines and a couple of nice melodic disses....

                                                  FD killed it, but not because he is black! He actually has a catchy rhyme.
