Who was the first President who felt that black people were the equals of whites?

I imagine that maybe Eisenhower was the first one who didn't regard black people as inferior, thanks to his Army experience. Maybe Carter or Clinton. What do you think and why?

    On 16 October 1901, shortly after moving into the White House, President Theodore Roosevelt invited his adviser, the African American spokesman Booker T. Washington, to dine with him and his family; it provoked an outpouring of condemnation from southern politicians and press.

    Probably John Hanson.  Of course I mean the John Hanson that created the Presidential Seal and that George Washington introduced as "the President of the United States", not the senator who is the only black man on the back of the $20 bill.

    Harry Truman hated racists and saw Black people as being equal.
