    Funny how the Southern states didn't buy his attempts to walk back his earlier anti-slavery statements.


    But it serves your purpose to.

    I dont have a "purpose" here. You are bent out of shape because I am not aligned with your romanticized bullshit.

    The southern states were understandably apprehensive. Lincoln, was a threat to their labor force because he wanted to preserve and industrialize the Union.

    Lincoln lost his life because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He did what he said he would do at the outset...preserved the union.
    Morality was secondary.

    I bet you believe in Santa Claus too_Ok

    1. Your purpose here is obvious. You want to deconstruct American Nationalism and bolster Black Ethno-nationalism.

    2. Lincoln was a threat to their labor force because he was strongly anti-slavery, on moral grounds. And as that person he won the Republican Primary and then the general election, in a franchise limited to white men. A proud day for America.

    You are the one who is believing the politician with every reason to lie, instead of looking at his statements when he was not under the gun and looking at his actions.

    "A franchise limited to white men"? "A proud day for America"? Slavery ended, Jim Crow began and the KKK was founded.

    And in many ways Jim Crow and Black Codes were just as restrictive and oppressive as slavery.

    Now it's obvious that you are a white nationalist loon who actually believes that the war was fought on a moral platfom and that Lincoln was a "humanitarian" who was on a mission of empathy to liberate slsves from captivity. What is even more hilarious is your belief that he was elected by a nation of noble, empathetic white males who believed the same nonsense that you are spinning in this thread.

    Slaves were the equivalent of FARM ANIMALS in that era, which means they were not even considered human, and they became an obsolete source of labor in a nation that was being advanced towards industrialization. You can continue to try to convince yourself that the lie you believe is true, but it is not and you can't change history.

    1. Yep. Despite the lack of representation for blacks, America choose antislavery.

    2. Jim Crow was as bad as slavery? you want to support that odd claim?

    So Lincoln was actually a closet Abolitionist who did not let onto this fact until he was elected?

    There was no representation for Blacks because that was tbe intentional outcome.

    The preservation of the union was first and foremost, and Americas new industrialized business model was set for the future.

    As for me wasting my own time attempting to educate you on the subject of Jim Crow, there are a plethora of resources on the internet that you can refer to on your own time.
