Abraham Lincoln never owned any slaves.
He was by no means "incredibly racist." Frederick Douglass himself may have called Lincoln the "white man's President," but he also said of him that "In his company, I was never reminded of my humble origin, or of my unpopular color."

By todays politically-correct standards, he would be deemed slightly racist. But not "incredibly racist" as you originally claimed. Yes, he had some character faults - he was somewhat misogynistic, and didn't believe African-Americans should be jurors. But he was one of the most racially-sensitive people of his day, and one of the biggest civil rights advocates (if not the biggest) of the 19th century.

He apparently wrote himself he hated the idea of slaves.
We're learning about the Civil War in my AP American History class, and to my knowledge he became against the idea of slavery after witnessing a slave auction in his youth.
He lived in Illinois through his adult years. Wasn't that a free state?
It would be highly unlikely for his family to own slaves too, considering how poor they were.

At first I just said it because my Social studies teacher told me, then I did some research. Found that he used the N-word habitually, supported black laws in Illinois which stripped them of basic human rights, and the Fugitive Slave Act, which compelled slaves that escaped to return .And, according to Lerone Bennett Jr., his Emancipation plan was just a coy to have all the African Americans Shipped back to Africa. My source for this was Lerone again, and I found this quote that I'm way to lazy to verify by Lincoln.
“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.”
Fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, September 18, 1858.
