son involved, "because prejudice,
with its reasor., has a motive to
give action to that reason, yvld aa
affection which will give it-prom
inence." Prejudice stands .as an
alert sentinel on duty. It is ready
for an emergency, and does not
hesitate or delay. It has no
doubts. "Prejadicerendersa man's
Yirtue, his habit, and not a series
of unconnected acts. Thr-,ugh j ast
prejudices, his duty becomes a
part of his nature."
Let us apply these profound
teachings to the matter before us.
The So'uthern people have an
in vincible prejudice against social
equality with the negro. Is there
a reason for this prejuldice? It
would become the publicists and
philosophers of the North to
seek this reason. Does it never
occur to them that millionas of
intelligent and virtuous people,
covering one-third of the area of
the country, would not cherish :
such a prejudice unless tlhere was
some g'ood reason for it? There
is a good reason. It is that such
relations b~etween the races would
lead to intermarriage. miscegena
tion, and the pxoduction of a
hybrid race, inferior to the whites,
\entally, and to the blacks, phy
s\ abl Such an adixiture would
meain the degradation. and u'ti
mate~ extinctiona, of the Angl>-1
Saxon in the South.
Thiis is a good and sufficient1
reason for the universail prejudice
in the South against social equality
with the negro.
Thus foitified, it is no longer
prjud'ce, but becomues a saicred
sentiment, a firm conviction, anj
inviolable instinet, a fixed habit
of nature. Thlese divinely imn
planted motives are arrayed as
armed sentries at the gates, to
guard the sanctity of the home,
the purity of blood, the just pride
of the superior race. Sulh hal
lowed feelings, shared by a whole
people, canrot be violated with
imptnity. They should b~e re
