I believe most abolitionists were hypocrites. For example in her own words she wrote the "ideal negro" should be "refined by white culture, elevated by white blood."

and...

 "the negro among negroes, is coarse, grinning, flat-footed, thick-skulled creature, ugly as Caliban, lazy as the laziest brutes, chiefly ambitious to be of no use to any in the world. . . He must go to school to the white race and his discipline must be long and laborious."

    She is not alone in her racist views as most abolitionists had them along with everyone else in America at that time.  I just don't see how someone with such "convictions" on the plight of the slaves could view them as almost sub-human herself. I have very little respect for the abolitionists, period. Its not just her.
