Does anyone else find it odd that Obama is using Lincoln's Bible?

    I can't imagine why a Black man would so closely associate himself with President Lincoln... Lincoln was no friend to Black people, he used them for political gain but he didn't see them as his equal.

    Heck, his master plan was to send all the freed slaves to a colony outside of the continental United States.

    From his 1861 State of the Union speech:

    Lincoln also spoke openly and often about his belief that Whites were superior to "Negro's". Here's a famous quote from Lincoln from the 1858 Lincoln-Douglas debate:



    If you ask me, Lincoln was a scumbag. But then who's asking me, right?

    :)

    So I find it odd that President Obama would be sworn in with Lincoln's Bible... if Lincoln had his way, Obama would never hold political office. Heck, he wouldn't even be in the country.

    Sorry, but political debates are not allowed on the forum.
