1) the conduct of the nation, which he saw as "hideous and revolting."

2) America's falsity, its failure to live up to the constitution and even more so the teachings of the Bible.

3) The arguement that "all" men are entitled to liberty.

These indictments come from Douglass' introduction. I hope this is the section your teacher was questioning...
