John Stuart Mill.
SATURDAY, APRIL 2, 1921
It is nauseating to read the
given out by R. R. Moton, principal
of Tuskegee, as he travels through
the South in jimcrow cars, stopping
now and then to make speeches laud
ing his oppressors. If he were the
only one to suffer it would matter
little, but his words are promptly
telegraphed all over the country, and
every time he opens his mouth the
colored people of the entire country
sink lower in the minds of those who
read. Many of his statements are
wholly without foundation in fact.
For instance in a recent lecture
before the students of the University
of North Carolina, the wires say he
said: "The Negro race has advanced
further than any similar number of
colored people anywhere on the globe
because it has had the privilege of
coming in contact with the white
people of the South." Could any
thing with a smaller amount of truth
and a greater amount of servility be
compressed into one sentence?
The census of Brazil shows that
there are about 22,000,000 people
with more or less Negro blood in
that country, or nearly twice as many
as there are in the United States,
according to census figures. And the
colored people of Brazil, although
they were once slaves and were not
emancipated until 1888, a quarter of
a century after Lincoln's proclama
tion, have advanced further than the
colored people in this country be
cause they have reached the point
where color does not count. They
are absolutely free from any civil or
social discriminations. The color line
does not exist in Brazil, and the
blackest Brazillian is in every way
the peer of the whitest of his
Principal Moton deems it a wonder
ful thing that his race "has had the
privilege of coming into contact with
the white people of the South." Here
are some of the benefits of the con
tact: Two hundred and fifty years
of slavery enactment of the in
famous Black Codes to retain slavery,
in fact, after its abolition segrega
tion denial of living wages denial
of equal school facilities disfranchise
ment jimcrow cars, etcetera, Why
even Tuskegee Institute which fur
nishes Principal Moton his bread and
butter is the gift of the North.
Northern people have given 95 perThe
cent of the endowment fund, and the
greater portion of the running ex
penses is begged in the North The
state of Alabama gives the measly
sum of about $3,000.
Here is another gem from Prin
cipal Moton "To the Southern white
people we owe our language and our
religion and all that we have learned
and all that we have advanced in
civilization." Think of a man who
would say such things being the
head of an institution which trains
the youth. Is it strange that many
of the studentrsW come out imbued
with distorted ideas of their proper
Then Principal Moton came out in
his peroration in which he said that
"no Southern colored iman wanted
social equality." In that statement
he showed his ignorance of the Eng
lish language? He probably meant
to say that the colored people were
not seeking matrimonial alliances
with white people. Principal Moton
may not wish social equality, but
there are millions of colored people
who do desire it. Social equality
means, "equality in the collective
body composing a community, espe
cially when considered as subjects of
civil government." Here are some of
the definitions of "equal": of the
same degrees with another or each
other uniform in condition or ac
tion of just proportion or relation
equitable, just, impartial, exact of
the same importance and concern
not distinguished by any ground or
Social equality means the right to
vote, the right to equal and identical
accommodations on common carriers,
the right to service in public places
of refreshment and amusement, the
right to residence anywhere one
able to buy or rent a home, the right
to attend the nearest public school,
the right to a legal trial when
charged with crime, and every other
right which citizenship in a republic
carries with it.
Principal Moton's dear friends of
the South have denied all of these
rights to the colored people, every
effort for advancement has been
fought, in one way or another, even
if conducted on jimcrow lines. The
purpose of the South always has been
and is now, to segregate the colored
people from other citizens and make
them a pariah class, despised by all
and subject to the whims and
caprices of a master class. In North
Carolina, where Principal Moton made
his speech, colored people are treat
ed as a group apart from the white
citizenship and subject to different
treatment. They have suffered from
a}l of the inequalities of citizenship.
They have made progress not be
cause of segregation, but in spite of
it. If the Southern white people
had not placed hindrances, including
murder, in their path, they would
have ere this reached the plane which
has been attained by the colored
people of Brazil.
Some of Principal Moton's activi
ties in the past should not be for-Jwn
gotten. Shortly after he succeeded
B. Washington, as the head of Tuske
gee, his wife was ejected from a
Pullman sleeper because she was
colored. Accordirig to the associated
press Moton made no attempt to de
fend her, but stated that he had ad
vised her not to attempt to ride in
a Pullman. Just after the armistice

THE MAN W HO DARES
I honor the man who in the consci

representative of President Wilson,
the arch enemy of the colored race.
Crisis and other periodicals and
many colored soldiers asserted that
instead of investigating and endeav
oring to correct the outrageous treat
ment to which the colored troops
were subjected, he rushed around,
made a few speeches telling the col
ored soldiers to be "good" and then
took the first boat for the U. S. "in
order to attend a conference at
For a colored man to laud the
brutal South, which has heaped un
speakable wrongs upon his people for
hundreds of years, is a disgusting ex
hibition of servility. Imagine if you
can, an Irishman approving the, aw
ful murders by the British soldiery
conceive if you can, a Jew condoning
the pogroms in Russia, Poland and
the Balkan states think of an East
Indian lauding the English who blew
many of his countrymen from the
mouths of cannon. If you can visual
ize these things then you can get a
true picture of what it means for a
colored man to laud the South.
DR. BENTLEY BANQUETED.
Recently two hundred of Chicago's
leading citizens gave a banquet cost
ing more than $1,000 to Dr. Charles
E. Bentley, the famous dentist, and
he well deserved the honor. The
editor of THE APPEAL has known
Dr. Bentley since his youth in Cin
cinnati and has watched his career
with interest and has seen him rise
by his own efforts from a poor boy
to one of the greatest dentists in the
country. He has received countless
honors from the members of his pro
fession who regard him as one of the
most skilful practitioners in the
In spite of the demands of his
work upon his time, and he has a
paying $20,000 to $25,000
per year, he has for years given much
of his valuable time in looking out
for the interests of those less for
tunate than he. His activities as a
public spirited citizen have won him
the love and esteem of all who know
THE JEWS FIGHT BACK.
The Jews are not like some of our
jimcrow people who turn the other
cheek when they are kicked and get
another kick. Oh, no they fight back
when they are attacked.
For some time past Henry Ford,
the billionaire automobile maker, has
been printing a lot of dirty stuff
aaginst the Jews in his paper, the
Dearborn Independent. The Jews
have money and the influence which
goes with it and they are preventing
the sale of the paper. It has al
ready been barred from the streets
of Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Toledo
and other large cities. That's the
way to do it fight back.

CRISPUS ATTUCKS HOME.
To Put on a Big Drive for One Thou
Under the reconstruction of the
Board of Trustees of Crispus Attucks
Home, its officers feel that they are
entitled to the hearty co-operation
and support of the people of the
Twin Cities in seeing that the home
is put in proper condition for the
care of its inmates, our old folks
an^ orphan children. And we the
trustees assure the public that we
will not lack in doing our part to
see that everything is kept as it
should be. We*have investigated the
method in which the business of the
home has been done and find, with
out criticism, that it is necessary to
make same changes in order that we
may have a correct record of every
thing that is done.
Crispus Attucks Home needs $1,000,
and the board is planning to raise
this sum in 90 days, with the sup
port and help of the generous public.
