It's history time bitches. Lincoln was adamantly against the institution of slavery and he wished to eliminate it if possible, but his first priority was to keep the union together. All else fell second to this. Many politicians were in favor of moving slaves back to Africa, to what is now Liberia (look at what their flag is like). They believed that they would be unable to integrate into white society. In short, he was an honorable man who truly had the good of the nation at heart.

Abraham Lincoln really was racist   
He was going to send all the freed slaves back to Africa    
They had even purchased a colony to send them all back to    
It was supposed to be signed only a few days after when he was shot

Here's a few things you may need to know:

1.) Abraham realized that the slaves were forced to be a part of a culture that was centuries ahead of them in civility and theorized that they would never be able to fully assimilate, leaving them in a state of perpetual second class citizen status. Which, he wasn't far from wrong. He wanted to send them back and let them be.
2.) He was part of the republican party. But not as you know it now. In fact, the republican and democratic parties changed conventional ideals sometime after his term.

Abe didn't give a **** about the slaves, he just wanted to preserve the union.
