Lincoln on Racial Equality:

I am not now, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social or political equality of the white and black races. I am not now nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor of intermarriages with white people. There is a physical difference between the white and the black races which will forever forbid the two races living together on social or political equality. There must be a position of superior and inferior, and I am in favor of a.ssigning the superior position to the white man.
mentally Black people are still slaves. It's ridiculous

@ you not presenting his other side of what he believed in. Later in life he changed his opinion and was a far more progressive thinker than most people of his time with regard to the race issue. Not about to look it up now, got to go but next time don't just blindly post something without adequate research on the topic.
still waiting for you to post evidence of this so called other side

I hope this schmuck does some more research about "Honest Abe" and comes to the epiphany that slavery wasn't ended because this dude cared about black folks! What an IDIOT!

MJ: And how about the 5's on each side? Because of the five-dollar bill?

D-Steve: Naw, I had to put the 5's on each side because nobody could recognize Abe. They kept asking me who it was?

-- considering the fallacies perpetuated through social studies and literature in this country through the public school system (and other media/social outlets) it is a perverted blessing that some people may not know who Abraham Lincoln was/is. Socially, and especially for people of color, he is made out to be a god-like savior--- and the sole reason why the black man gained his freedom in western civilizatioon through his crooked and oppressive systems of capitalism, politics, and economics-- and he is revered as someone who gave two sh*ts about my forefathers ....and for this nincompoop to tattoo this cat on his body is distasteful...just as it is on Rick Ross...and anyone else who can embellish their temple with such a false idol. These cats need to dig deeper on the symbolism that they chose to personify and represent themselves with. In the end, the scrutiny of concious minds will help shed light on the ignorance these dudes illustrate by doing something like this--- these types of things represent just how much of a slave WE STILL ARE.

I get tired of people acting like Lincoln was this great man that freed the slaves because he thought it was wrong. He freed the slaves due to voting ramications. And I get sick of people acting like the north gave a fu*k about the slaves.
Lincoln didn't free the slaves at all

The Emancipation Proclamation freed all slaves in non-Union territory and border states, but said that if the states re-joined the Union that they'd be allowed to have their slaves

it wasn't due to voting ramifications, it was him wanting to re-unite the nation

most presidents do this when facing re-election as most congressmen do. they do what they want and then when re-election time comes, they verbally change their views to gain the popular/majority vote.

Stevenson is an idiot.. you tattooed a picture of a man who ONLY did away w/ slavery in a sense to win a war. He needed more man power to beat the confederates.

History.. Learn it.

damn, never heard that
The truth...Abe never gave a rat's Axx about slaves. And he didn't "free" slaves for the sake of making things right. He did this for other reasons...
