Performer/writer Fran Gillespie joins Andrew all this week to answer some racism questions. Today they talk about Abraham Lincoln possibly being a white supremacist. Be sure to call us at (323) 389-RACE to ask if anything is racist.

Lincoln's racism is also present in his letters, and anecdotes about jokes he told, etc. It wasn't just a politics thing, his private remarks had the same tone as his public statements.
Fair enough. Still, he believed they were human beings and it was wrong to own them, right?
