How about we just level any country that has someone that hurt someone else's feelings?
Or, grow up and stop being whiny little girls?
So perhaps people should grow up and stop whining like little boys?

No worries. I'm just messing with you. It's just one of those misconceptions that always puzzled me. It's like how guys gossip just as much as women do, but only they get a negative stigma for it. We even turned gossiping into actual professions, like commentating, shock jocks, reporting, scouting, being informants, etc.

As far as people like Washington and Jefferson owning slaves, they were black but more like employees, they took in escaped slaves and gave them refuge, sort of like we here Latinos today to pick our crops, mow our lawns and clean our hotels.
The difference between that form of slavery and the Pre civil war south is but a few bull whip strokes away.
