More on Abraham Lincoln: A mixed bag at best.

Lincoln Supported Slavery:
(Lincoln said,) "I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races."

So the next time a Republican throws out the well-used "fact" that Lincoln was the first Republican President and was against slavery and therefore, see, Republicans aren't racists or homophobes or the party of the wealthy, you can calmly correct them.
