They were ahead of their times, but their times are long past. How you feel about white men having a disproportionate amount of power will dictate which half of the previous sentence you focus on.

"white men having a disproportionate amount of power
"? disproportionate ? There weren't many asians or latinos or free blacks back then. Since free whites were about 99% of the voting blocs back then, their power was pretty proportionate .

And not much left in the Constitution gives a edge to white males anymore.
