Racism in the Context of Time

Was the man who said this a racist:

I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about the social or political equality of the white and black races - I am not ... in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to inter-marry with white people.

There is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.
I will leave you to ponder these words over the weekend.

Is there a reason you are cherry picking a quote from Abe Lincoln's not so finest hour ?

And in any case, wasn't he killed?
