The Framers did not avoid the slavery issue when creating the US Constitution. Since there were only 13 colonies/states, Georgia and South Carolina would not ratify a constitution that abolished slavery. As a compromise to do something about slavery, the South agreed that all importation of slaves would end in ten years.
