Abraham Lincoln Quote
I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.

You're an inbred, low-watt, toothless, North Carolina hick. Of course, anything you post is irrelevant to anybody of even the thinnest shred of intelligence. Why should this post be any different?

First of all Lincoln was a product of his time. This was the typical 19th Century view of almost the entire United States, both North and South. This also was said during the debates not for President, but for Senate. Illinois was both pro and anti slave. Douglas was trying to make the voters of his state worried that Lincoln was a rabid abolitionist who was going to attempt to end slavery if elected to the Senate. Lincoln at that time was a believer that slavery should not spread beyond where it existed. In this debate he was attempting to answer Douglas' charges and re-iterate his position and belief in "negro equality".
By the way, Lincoln was also a proponent of returning freed slaves to Africa. Like Henry Clay and many others of his time, Lincoln thought it made sense for former slaves to be returned to the land of their ancestors birth. Look up the history of Liberia.
If you are going to use such a quote, read the whole book and educate yourself on Lincoln.

Monroe did just that and paid reperations by giving free passage back to their homeland even establishing liberia. Where today cannibalism is in open practice with the rebel groups and militias. Liberias capital is monrovia named after the president.

The interesting thing that happened with the founding of Liberia, many of the returned American former slaves were prejudiced against the indigenous peoples. There was an air of superiority from the former AMERICAN slaves over the Africans, and this still exists today. People who trace their roots back to America believe they are better than the non American-Liberians. Actually the idea of returning former slaves to Africa was foolish and impractical. The slaves were American born and had no connection to Africa other than their grandfathers were from there. They considered themselves American and wanted to be free in America. Of course they would see themselves as better than Africans, they were Americans.
