Annas on imperfectly unified virtues:
We may think of the effect on the reputation of Thomas Jefferson of the discovery that he probably had an unacknowledged family by one of his slaves. (Intelligent Virtue, 90n6)
This is dumb. Who wouldn’t fuck his slaves? That’s what female slaves are for, for fucking. If I had slaves, I’d bang them every day. (I’d try to avoid making bastards, though.) No, Jefferson was A-OK.
I do question his taste, though, in having sex with his black slaves. That’s disgusting, like fucking animals. What kind of white pervert is attracted to black chicks?
