You need to re-read the quote from Wikipedia
"Lincoln often expressed moral opposition to slavery in public and private.[1] Initially, he expected to bring about the eventual extinction of slavery by stopping its further expansion into any U.S. territory, and by proposing compensated emancipation (an offer Congress applied to Washington, D.C.) in his early presidency. Lincoln stood by the Republican Party platform in 1860, which stated that slavery should not be allowed to expand into any more territories. Lincoln believed that the extension of slavery in the South, Mid-west, and Western lands would inhibit "free labor on free soil". In the 1850s, Lincoln was politically attacked as an abolitionist, but he did not consider himself one; he did not call for the immediate end of slavery everywhere in the U.S. until the proposed 13th Amendment became part of his party platform for the 1864 election.[2]"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraham_Lincoln_...
Yes, Lincoln was morally against slavery. His initial attempts was to stop slavery expansion thinking that it would eventually abolish it. As the quote states he joined in support of the 13th Amendment when it became part of the Republican platform in 1864.
You are very misguided to think Dems were always pro-Civil Rights and the Reps were ever anti-Civil Rights
You're misguided sir. I clearly stated the opposite. Stop putting words in my mouth! Bettie Lou please tell him how this conversation started. I know he can look for himself but, he refuses to. I said in so many words"the Republican party use to be the Democrat party." Now your saying I said that Dems were always procivil right & the republicans were always against it. Not hardly sir!

Return to the South where there is more economic opportunity and lower living costs.
Ironically, this is true.

According to the New York Times, black New Yorkers, including many who are young and college educated, are heading south.

The movement is not limited to New York. The percentage of blacks leaving big cities in the East and in the Midwest and heading to the South is now at the highest levels in decades.

The South now represents the potential for achievement for black New Yorkers in a way it had not before.

Maybe more of them will come back to the party of their roots as well now that they have more opportunities and acceptance provided by what is now the southern red states.

I'd love to help you clarify your stance but the Republican party was never the Democratic Party. And vice-versa.

The Socialist Elite must be kept immune from the common inconveniences of everyday life. It's practically their birthright.

It would be insulting for them to have to pay. Like Stalin being forced to wash dishes or Marx being forced to sell Auto Insurance.

I think people in the middle of this discussion over stated their positions or implied things they did not mean to. You are right NOT all Dems were against the CRA, not all Southern Reps joined the Rep party because they were racist, etc.
It just gets my dander up when liberals misrepresent the Republican Party as racists.

It's the big lie perpetrated by Democrats who want to keep the black vote.

Your premise that the two parties "swapped" is grossly inaccurate.
Your bias is just clouding your thinking.
The problems of urban poverty among blacks is now predominantly in the northern cities.
So does that mean the northern blue states are racists because of the urban poverty among blacks?
The southern red states became a mix of northerners and middle class southerners by the late 1960s after the black exodus. Why would that mean they are still racists?
Can you see where you're not really thinking this through?
How are you equating slavery to black poverty? They're are 2 different scenarios. Blacks self migrated to the both in search of economic opportunities. Slaves were kidnapped, sold, & abused by there oppressors. The South is still known to be racist, yet politically it went from blue to red. The only thing that makes sense is the racist Democrats swapped parties! Make sense of it for me please!

I am glad to hear this but it doesn't explain your response to Lincoln . When I challenged you that Lincoln was Rep and how did that support your racism theory. You didn't deny you held one but claimed it supported it. Do I need to bring the post forward again?

You have a lot of clarifying to do with that claim.

A black senator in Louisiana switched to the Republican Party arguing that the GOP should be the new home for African-Americans like him.

In the video, state senator Elbert Guillory urges blacks to join with him in abandoning the government plantation and the party of disappointment.

His four-minute inspiring video can be seen here.

Obama, Putin Agree Never to Speak to Each Other Again
Posted by Andy Borowitz
LOUGH ERNE, NORTHERN IRELAND (The Borowitz Report)—The G8 summit ended today on a constructive note, with President Obama and Russia’s Vladimir Putin reaching a broad agreement never to speak to each other again.
“It’s better this way,” said Mr. Obama, frostily standing in the general vicinity of Mr. Putin for the last time ever.“We truly despise each other.”
“I couldn’t agree more,” said Mr. Putin, looking as though he had just smelled something bad.“My hatred of this man knows no bounds.”
According to the agreement, economic coöperation, cyber security, human rights, the war in Syria, and the New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s missing Super Bowl ring are among thirty-seven different topics that the two men will never again discuss.
Additionally, at all future summits, if either Mr. Obama or Mr. Putin enters a room the other man will be obligated to leave immediately.
The two men reached agreement on an unprecedented number of points, including never contacting each other via telephone or e-mail and keeping a minimum of five hundred feet away from each other’s residences.
After signing the agreement, the two men shook hands for the final time and scowled bitterly for photographers.
This rift began when Putin insisted that the Magic Negro wear protection butt the Boy Messiah refused saying that the reduced sensation made the act less pleasurable.

But they were denied any hope of opportunities in the blue states.

The NYT article I posted said blacks are moving back to the south in significant numbers because the opportunities are there now.

They weren't there when the southern states were blue states.

Can't you see what I'm saying? How can southern red states still be racist if the opportunites and acceptance are there now rather than in the northern blue states?
