The founding fathers failed to eliminate slavery because the slaves were the deal then as they helped in doing labor work that helped spur the economy.

Some of the states would not ratify, or approve, the new Constitution if they had anything to do with slavery. For compromise, the Founding Fathers agreed to let the matter of slavery be left alone for at least 20 years.

Many of the Founding Fathers had slaves and knew that way of life. Change is always hard to follow through when it affects you personally.

the Founding Fathers avoided the slavery issue because it would've disrupted colonial unity (because the north and south would've been arguing) that was much needed in creating a union/country.

The founding fathers of the United States did not abolish slavery right away because it was something that they found useful. There were many slaves working in state houses in Pennsylvania at the time the Declaration of Independence was signed. Many families had slaves to do the cooking and cleaning in the northern states.

Slavery, some were for it, others were against it. The pro slavery side won, until the Civil War settled the matter once and for all.

They made MANY. There was vigorous debate with a great deal of dis-agreement.

the founding fathers were against slave trade because they wanted America to be a free country and and for people to have rights no matter what color there skin is and what is a free world with slavery(a third world country)

I think it depends on where the Founding Father is from. Some are from the southern states where slavery is a main part of money. Some are from the North where people strongly oppose slavery since they are all people in a way. Most of them were against slavery; however, a couple were very vehement about keeping slavery in the Declaration of Independence.
