El Plan de Philadelphia

Apparently there is another racist group that harks back to a founding document that "excluded Indians" from its body and treated black people as three-fifths of a human being. This Plan de Philadelphia even licensed the international sale of slavery.

And to this day, leaders of this strange cult-like nation refuse to repudiate this document. They claim that there are too many good things in the document to let a few phrases overshadow the rest, and that in any case, the nation is dedicated today to multi-racialism and tolerance.

But why should we bother looking at actual practice or beliefs today when we can cite those racist phrases? Where is the repudiation?
