Best Answer

The Founding Fathers (Delegates to the Philadelphia Convention) did not "establish" racism. Racism has been alive and well in the world since the dawn of time. What they did do is tacitly condone slavery by not writing it out of their new document. From a practical view, thy had no choice. To get their new constitution ratified required the votes of several southern states. The delgates from those states made it clear that they would not vote to ratify a document that did not condone slavery. So it was simply done for political expediency.
