On the Fact that Frederick Douglass Once Proclaimed that President Lincoln Was a "Hypocrite Who Was Only Proud of His Own Race and Nationality" and a "Prejudiced, Black Colonizationist, with Nothing but Contempt and Even Hatred for the Negro"

Look, I get it, Lincoln was a product of his era. But, I'm sorry, even by 19th century standards, the dude was a flaming bigot and kudos to Douglass (one of my three "racial heroes"; the other two being Booker T. Washington and John F. Kennedy) for having the courage to speak truth to power.
