John Green hating on Aristotle (x)

"We justified the insanity [slavery] with Biblical passages, and with the examples of the Greeks and Romans, and with outright racism arguing that black people were inherently inferior to whites, and that not to keep them in slavery would upset the natural order of things… a worldview popularized millennia ago by my nemesis Aristotle.”
