My point should read, Davis's descendants rationalized Davis's beliefs by saying "(Slavery) was the standard of the day — it's the way the world was."

Davis was well aware of different views on he morality of slavery and he was aware of that the leading countries of the civilized world, France and England, had outlawed slavery.

Although Davis was an accomplished man, his legacy is tainted by being on the wrong side of the slavery issue.
