Lincoln possessed a unique perception towards Blacks and Whites of America, according to which blacks and whites were two different characteristics of the same America, possessing equal right to live their life their way. Their identities were different from each other, their races were dissimilar and even their color were unlike due to which both the races were living in inferiority and superiority complexes. In order to get rid of those complexes it was better for the Blacks of America to settle their lives and families somewhere else. These complexes seemed unable to resolve the conflicts of the racial dilemma.Lincoln, born to a family who belonged to Frontier, was not aware of the principles of cultural sophistication and lacked in several skills, which later escorted him to the political lack of ignorance. Living on a frontier side had a great impact on his personality, as he was not sharp-tongued but possessed a good moral and individual warm-hearted behavior. His childhood and mostly youth was affected from the threshold of poverty. He was a self-educated and a self made man, who started practicing education by barely scrawling his name.Just after his father's death, he could not even get a job but of carpentry and farming. Later he discovered as a misfit to such occupation and found within him an eager desire to learn which later escorted him towards leadership....
While Lincoln was performing as a Captain in his volunteer campaign, the Black Hawk war broke out in Illinois. He then was elected to the Illinois House of Representatives, and reelected again and again in 1836, 1838, and 1840. Later he studied law, and by applying to his political life, he was ruled by victory.
As he was an anti slavery and was aware of the fact that Blacks do not possess or they are not known to the social rights and privileges. Oates has written in his book:
"It was his belief in the purity of the white race. In Dixon's hands, Lincoln is a fine
Southern gentleman ... And Senator James K. Vardaman of Mississippi, the dramatic
"White Chief" who dressed in white, wore his dark hair to his shoulders, and mesmerized
White Mississippians". (p 22)
Americans have often thought of Lincoln as a human, rather than as the President who tried from all his heart and soul for the freedom of slaves, as he was against black slavery and possess the conception that blacks should also have to survive with the equal rights and opportunities, they also have a right to live their life but, but somewhere outside the country. They should never be given any opportunity to mix with whites as they are of no match to the white community. That was Lincoln's view regarding blacks of America that gave him opportunity to free the slaves and was ultimately declared as a 'champion of Black freedom' and even fought for the blacks in the form of 'American Civil War'.
"Yes, we were winning our own freedom, were forging a black radical consensus" (p29)
As Lincoln was a man of human values and morals and was against any kind of slavery,
