Sooo...today on You Tube I had a person reasoning his claim that there was no racism in the republican party with saying Abraham Lincoln was a Republican...just that, nothing else. Forget about the parties, and just focus on his reasoning, because that's the problem. And since I've seen people here saying similar things, I'm addressing the subject - that's not proof, period. One's actions doesn't dictate everyone's actions, that's a fact. It's actually simple logic. Just like not every republican is racist because of Trump calling himself Republican, the same stands with them not being racist just because Lincoln was a Republican. That reasoning has no ground, so please, stop using it. You want to say Republican or Liberals aren't racist? Start by not generalizing. There is no "They all are insert insult/compliment" - there will be exceptions.
