“Free them [black slaves] and make them politically and socially our equal?  My own feelings will not admit of this . . . .  We can not then make them equals.” (CW, 2, 256).  “There is a natural disgust in the minds of nearly all white people, to the idea of an indiscriminate amalgamation of the white and black races.” (CW, 2, 405).  “What I would most desire would be the separation of the white and black races.” (CW, 2, 521).  “I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races .  .  .  .  I, as well as Judge [Stephen] Douglas, am in favor of the race to which I belong, having the superior position.” (CW, 2, 16).

“I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races . . . . I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people.” (CW, 3, 145-146).  “I will to the very last stand by the law of this state [i.e., Illinois], which forbids the marrying of white people with Negroes.” (CW, 3, 146).  “Senator Douglas remarked . . . that . . . this government was made for the white people and not for Negroes.  Why, in point of fact, I think so too.” (CW, 2, 281).

“I have said that the separation of the races is the only perfect preventive of amalgamation,” he declared, and “such separation . . . must be affected by colonization.” (CW, 2, 409). “Let us be brought to believe it is morally right, and . . . favorable to . . . our interest, to transfer the African to his native clime [i.e., Africa], he said (CW, 2, 409). “The place I am thinking about having for a colony is in Central America. It is nearer to us than Liberia.” (CW, 5, 373-374).
