|We enslaved and wiped out the indigenous.|
We were taught wrong, and it could hardly be an accident that we were not taught about the previous men of distinction being black. Remember, in our very racist country, qualifying as black used to take as little as 1/16th part, while many believed in their heart that "one drop" was too much black to call oneself "white." Some of the indigenous people of the Americas were black (aboriginal, African-descended, and others) in addition to the red and brown people living here.

- The idea that Hanson was the forgotten first POTUS (President of the United States) was further promoted in a 1932 biography of Hanson by journalist Seymour Wemyss Smith that asserted that the American Revolution had two primary leaders -- George Washington on the battlefield, and John Hanson in politics. Smith's book, like Douglas H. Thomas's 1898 book, was one of a number of biographies written seeking to promote Hanson as the "first President of the United States." Regarding this position, historian Ralph Levering stated: "They're not biographies by professional historians; they aren't based on research into primary sources."
- According to historian Richard B. Morris, if a president of Congress were to be called the first President of the United States, "a stronger case could be made for Peyton Randolph of Virginia, the first President of the first and second Continental Congresses, or for John Hancock, the President of Congress when that body declared its independence." The claim that Hanson was a forgotten President of the United States was revived on the Internet, sometimes with a new assertion that he was actually a black man; sometimes an anachronistic photograph of Senator John Hanson of Liberia has been used to support this claim.

This document was actually proposed on June 11, 1776 but not agreed upon by Congress until November 15, 1777. Maryland refused to sign this document until Virginia and New York ceded their western lands.

He declared that the 4th Thursday of every November would be "Thanksgiving Day," which continues today. Although elected, one variable that was never thought through was that America was not going to accept a black president during the heart of the chattel slave period. Enter George Washington.

He proudly admitted that his mother was dark but claimed it was because of a mixed Indian [Native American] ancestry.
His mother’s maiden name was “Moor.” In Europe the name “Moor” [Spanish moreno, "dark-skinned"] was given to all black people, just as in America the name “Negro” [Spanish for "black"] was used.
