The silence was about not ackknowledging slavery. It was a sort of "don't ask don't tell" sort of thing. The Founding Fathers tried to ignore slavery. I think they knew that emancipation would come one day but if they just kept quiet, they could keep their big plantations going the way they always did. I think the best solution would have been to deal with it and abolish it right away. Obviously that never happened.
