With all this talk of Confederate monuments, I started wondering if there was anyone in history that couldn't be considered racist by some modern standard.
I understand many historical figures didn't speak on race, so I would limit this question to people who, in some way or another, espoused views on race that would be considered in-line with a modern, progressive viewpoint (or close to it).
Put another way, a person who could be plucked from history and brought to the 20th century without any worry about them having controversial views. They might even rejoice at how far society had progressed (relatively speaking).
For example, Abraham Lincoln is often remembered as the president who freed the slaves. However, if we brought him to the present, some of his remarks in the past suggest he would disagree with certain policies regarding racial equality, discrimination, etc.
I guess I'll limit this to racism, but if the person was also progressive regarding other forms of discrimination (sex, gender, sexual orientation, etc.) that would be a bonus. For the time, I think pre-1900 would be a minimum, but the further back the better.
Edit: I guess I should also limit this to individuals that weren't part of an oppressed population in their society, or there will probably be a lot more answers.
Edit 2: I realize this is kind of a vague question. I've just been tired of hearing the old "you can't judge them by modern standards" and was hoping to hear some good counter examples.
