IMO, Spielberg was in a no-win position with regards to history. He left out Lincoln's racism, so he's getting slammed for that. If he'd included it, he'd be accused of over-emphasizing it or else of ignoring Lincoln's accomplishments.

Face it, Lincoln was human, and flawed. That isn't what most people want to see in a movie, except in small doses. They want heroes.
