As much as I hate dispraising such a respected figure, I must say that Lincoln, despite his avocations to preserve democracy and freedom, was in fact a racist who did not care at all about the slaves that his proclamation was intended to protect. ^Is there a better way of saying he didn't care about the slaves at all? My way sounds weird. Thanks!

    And he didn't care FOR the slaves, he cared about the expansion of slavery. He didn't want slavery to expand into the west and take up all the land.

    He was a politician, his personal views were probably like today's "leaders" - not necessarily useful or helpful or reflective of the general facts/truth about slavery and society etc. Slavery was an economic issue as much as anything and its continuance was not beneficial to the prosperity of the US - a matter usually more important to pollies.
