Abraham Lincoln /(1809-1865) 16th US President

From his speech at the fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, September 18, 1858

"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."

Lincoln did indeed understand things.

So why then do all the stupid black people think Lincoln was their savor, their emancipator?

How many Negros did he send back to Africa on ships? I have heard it was in the thousands.

It is true, Lincoln did have a plan to ship all black people back to Africa. There were numerous shiploads sent, but I am not aware how many.

Lincoln was indeed no friend of the colored people. How the history got so screwed up is beyond me. But if you simply look, you can learn. Lincoln gave many speeches putting the blacks in their "place".

I have an idea. Any black American that takes offense at the South, Google Colored Confederate Soldier's and read. There were many all black regiments fighting for the South. And once you give 250 men, the typical regiment guns and ammo, they can no longer be considered slaves.

But people, you will never get it reported the way it was. The media then just as now are liars, and rarely tell the truth.

When wondering what Lincoln would have thought about Obama, it is in the text of the OP.

"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"

Lincoln and 98 percent of all the Presidents up until now, would simply put Obama on a boat straight back to Kenya.

Remember they were trying to make America succeed.
