His head was small and seemed mashed on the sides until it bulged into a double lobe behind. Even his ears, which he had pierced and hung with red earbobs, seemed to have been crushed flat to the side of his head. His kinked hair was wrapped in little hard rolls close to the skull and bound tightly with dirty thread. His receding forehead was high and indicated a cunning intelligence. His nose was broad and crushed flat against his face. His jaws were strong and angular, mouth wide, and lips thick, curling back from rows of solid teeth set obliquely in their blue gums. The one perfect thing about him was the size and setting of his mouth—he was a born African orator, undoubtedly descended from a long line 249 of savage spell-binders, whose eloquence in the palaver houses of the jungle had made them native leaders. His thin spindle-shanks supported an oblong, protruding stomach, resembling an elderly monkey’s, which seemed so heavy it swayed his back to carry it.

I must respectfully dissent.
The introduction of nigger slavery on the North American continent was a crime against the children of the African continent and a worse crime against the descendents of everyone else who settled/were native to the North American continent.
The Abolitionist movement in the North was not a bunch of nigger-lovers as is commonly misrepresented in history books today.
The slave system had to expand or it would die. Simple economics verifies this point. Instead, many of those who hated slavery hated it because nigger slave labor could and was undermining free white labor. Also, many in the North did not want to have niggers as neighbors. They saw slavery as a system so bad that niggers would run away from it, and the only place they could run away to was the North.
It was the greedy Southern aristocracy which had the most to gain from slavery, and who could blame the radical Republicans for wanting to expropriate their property so that the niggers would stay in the south?
An even more radical outcome of the American Civil War would have been if areas of the deep south had been classified as "national sacrifice areas" where all the niggers, north and south were relocated and given self-determination. This area, known as the "Colored States of America" would have been forced to sink or swim with out aid from an all white American republic.
Ultimate segregation? Who dares to say the alternative is better?

They were usually saves themselves captured by another tribe. Instead of eating them they got some rum.

Rings true today. I was always told to keep a distance from them.
Here is a quote from Abraham Lincoln as I am sure you have already read.
["I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races - that 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; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything."]
The people from the north were basically drafted and hoodwinked into fighting.
You were warned a long time ago about niggers. They didn't want them back up in the north. Once something gets free you need to let it be free. That goes for anything. Let them live in the woods.

Silverbackpoacher, "drafted and hoodwinked?"
I think many if not most in the North realized that if slavery was not stopped, it would expand north and west.
Lincoln did not want to abolish slavery where it existed according to the campaign he ran on for president. He wanted to prevent it from spreading. The slave power was plenty upset about that point because they knew that slavery must expand or perish.
States like Iowa did not enact "Black Codes" because they were friendly to slavery. On the contrary, they wanted no niggers living within their borders, free or otherwise.
The idea of 40 acres and a mule was to keep niggers in the South.
Yes, partition would have been messy as the history of India and Pakistan proved in the 20th century. In the long run it would have been better to separate the races at that time and let the defeated southerners move west and north and give the niggers a place to manage/mismanage all on their own.
