NEVER FORGET.

I will say then that I am not, nor even have been in favor of bringing about in any way 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; … there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will for ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.

I know right? So many people put so much black cred on this man when I can't stand that nobody is really saying how he was STILL a racist but just wanted justice for the "NEGROES" albeit that we were still inferior to him. How does nobody report this stuff??? He did not think highly of black people at all. He just wanted all men to be free that's all. So he only had it half right. So smart, yet so dumb at the same time.

My best, Lynn
*thanks for putting this out there.
