Benjamin Franklin did have some notable advantages to Douglass. For one he was a white man, who was able to attend some schooling, but he also had a large family whom were able to find him a trade.

    seeking my undergraduate university degree several years ago. Yet some of America’s best colleges and universities are putting political correctness ahead of traditional academic policy by stripping the once-popular TV comedian Bill Cosby of his honorary degrees, in response to allegations that Cosby sexually assaulted numerous women.
