THOMAS JEFFERSON ON BLACK MENTAL ABILITY

"Comparing them by their facilities of memory, reason, and imagination, it appears to me that in memory they are the equal of the whites; in reason much inferior; as I think one could scarcely  be found capable of tracing and comprehending the investigations of Euclid; and that in imagination they are dull, tasteless, and anomalous." Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia.
