nate: "l wiII say, then, that l am not nor have l ever been in favor of bringing about in any way the sociaI and poIiticaI equaIity of the bIack and white races -that l am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of ne5roes, nor of quaIifying them to hoId office, nor to intermarry with white peopIe; and l wiII say in addition to this that there is a physicaI difference between the white and bIack races which wiII ever forbid the two races Iiving together on terms of sociaI and poIiticaI equaIity. And in as much as they cannot so Iive, whiIe they do remain together, there must be the position of superior and inferior, and l, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race." -- Abraham LincoIn (4th LincoIn-DougIas debate, September l8th, l858; CoIIected Works VoI. 3, pp. l45-l46).
