A WHITE MAN'S FAIR OPINION
There are very few white men in
this prejudice-bound country that can
see any good in, and that are honest
t-nd fair enough to testify to the won
derful progress made by the colored
people in this country. It is therefore
a pleasure to reproduce what one of
them, John Stevens McGroarty, of the
Los Angeles Times, has to say along
those lines under the caption of,
Ten millions of the inhabitants of
the United States are "Negroes."
Some of them aie pure-blooded and
some of them are of mixed blood.
Some of them are black and some
"brawn. But they are all classed as
The ancestors of these people were
brought from Africa as slaves and
weie kept in bondage until a bloody
war and Abraham Lincoln's Procla
mation of Emancipation set them free.
That was only sixty years ago. And
in that brief space of time the Ameri
can "Negro" has made the most amaz
ing progress that any race has ever
made in the history of civilization.
You must count the progress of a
lace only from the time that it was
given an opportunity to think and act
for itself. And the American "Negro"
has had that opportunity for only
And when you consider that, man

property, in education, in art, in lit
erature and in the highest forms of
culture, the American "Negro" stands
equal today with the American white
man, how can you fail to honor and
But, you may ask, is it a fact, real
ly, that the "Negro" stands equal,
man for man, with white men in this
country in all the essentials Q civili

fact. And it is the most amazing fact

not taken the trouble to find out what
he has been doing.
Well, he has been making a man of
himself, we can tell you that. In ev
ery way he has been making a man of
himself. He owns banks, farms, fac
tories and mills. He owns 14,000,000
acres of land in the country where he
was a slave only sixty years ago,
bought and sold as cattle are bought
and sold, kicked and whipped as a dog.
He has nearly a billion dollars of
wealth of his coffers. And he has his
own schools and churches in very
But all that is far less wonderful
htan the fact that there is a "Negro"
culture here in America that, we think,
almost surpasses our own. White men
do not know it, yet it exists and has
a beauty and a nobility that would
have delighted Pythagoras, himself.
In the world of "Negro" culture we
have found poets, artists, music mak
ers, and the dreamers of high dreams.
Rene Maran is there, Burghardt Du
Bois, Tanner, Paul Lawrence Dunbar
and many another.
But it must be a heart-breaking
thing to be all that the best men ever
were, to have brains, hearts and souls
?qual to the best that God has created,
and yet to be sneered at!
GIVES WHITE FOLKS GOOD
It is not often that we find a white
nan advocating the doings of colored
people, because they are just like
other people, with the same desires,
the same aspirations, and have a God
?iven right to indulge in them. A
couple of weeks ago we published the
account of a formation of a golf club
at "Shady Rest," near Westfield, N.
and now comes William Allen
vVhite, editor of the Emporia (Kan
as) Gazette, with some good advice
/hich it would be well for white men
take notice of and follow.
"At Westfield, N. J., a colored golf
club has been established and a nine
hole course laid out. A colored colony
there seems to warrant the golf
course. The item that this course is
laid out will cause a million giggles
to sizzle across the country. Cartoon
ists will make funny pictures of it.
Vaudeville artists will do sketches
about it. Something exquisitely funny
seems to excite the white race when
it sees the colored race doing things
which are ordinary part of the day's
work and play to the white people. It
is as though the elephant should drive
an auto or a horse play the piano.
"The reason for the risibility of the
white man at the black man's human
activities is obvious, and it is no credit
to the white man. He thinks it is
funny to see the black man doing
things that normal human beings do,
because the white man does not think
of his dark-skinned fellow-traveler on
the planet as a human companion. The
white man considers any colored man
black, brown, red, yellow or maroon
as an animal. The anthropological
conceit of the white man in ponderous,
unbelievable, vastly amusing to the
"Why should not the black man play
golf if his economic status gives him
leisure for golf? Why should he not
have a motor car and a country house
if he can afford it? Why giggle at
the normal activities of men whose
skin differs from your own? Some
thing of the same psychological reason
is being the fact that we middle-class
people make merry over the fact that
THE MAN WHO DARES

entious discharge of his duty dares to

intolerant judgment, may condemn

THE SIN OF SILENCE
To sin by silence when we should
protest makes cowards out of men.
The human race has climbed on pro
test. Had no voice been raised against
injustice, ignorance and lust, the in-
quisition yet would serve the law, and

GARVEY THE JIMCROIST
Recently in New Orleans, Marcus
Garvey, who is not a citizen of the
United States, according to the as
sociated press, said:
"his is a white man's country. He
found it, conquered it, and we can't
blame him if he wants to keep it. I
am not vexed with the white man of
the South for jimcrowing me because
I am black
"I never built any street cars or
railroads. The white man built them
for his own convenience. And if I
don't want to ride where he's willing
to let me ride I'd better walk."
That is a servile, foolish and dan
gerous statement, but it sounds very
much like some of the Booker-Moton
talk which we have heard in recent
For years THE APPEAL has
preached that the greatest menace
to the rights of all Americans is the

Taken In Duluth
Henderson'Bad Man'Will Faec
Charge of Beating Woman
Robert (Big Bob) Henderson, no
torious colored bad man, wanted by
the police of St. Paul for assault
with assault with-intent to kill Mrs.
Bertha Black, colored, 146 East 13th
street, on the night of June 5, was
arrested in Duluth.
Henderson was arrested in St.
Paul December 29, 1913, on the
charge of murder.
Mrs. Black was accused by Hen
derson of having been the cause of
his arrest for disorderly conduct on
June 3. After getting bail, Hender
son went to the Black home and at
tacked Mrs. Black with a hammer,
fracturing her skull in three places.
The woman is still at the City hos
pital, but recovering.
Henderson is known in the Twin
Cities as a "bad man," first coming
under the observance of the police
when he cut the,, throat of Rose Mc
Donald, a white woman, whom he
said he had intended to marry. The
woman died from the knife wounds.
Following the killing, Henderson
went to the county jail and surren
dered. He was paroled after serv
ing a part of a penitentiary sentence.
He then returned to St. Paul and be
came involved in numerous minor
frays with the nohce. He was one of
the state's star witnesses in the Car
son murder case, in which another
colored man was accused of having
murdered his wife. Carson was ac

Philadelphia. At the thirty-sixth
annual commencement of Temple
University, Martin E. Gibbs, colored,
distinguished himself by winning two
prizes in the school of pharmacy, in a
class of 125 students, and receiving
honorable mention for third prize.

The remarkable phase of this high
honor to which Martin E. Gibbs at
tained is that these prizes were won
in a class of white students, there be
ing only eleven colored students in
this class of 125. Therefore, there
cannot be given too much credit to
this young man, of whom the entire
race should be proud.

special grand jury, which has been in
vestigating hangings and other ac

This announcement was made after

ified 100% perfect with the army rifle.
This result was so astounding as to
call for special verification by the war

AIMS AT BLACK
MAN BUT KILLS
Bullet Meant For Black Man
Strikes Southern Woman
Jasper, Ala., July 21.Starke L.
Daniels, former police officer of Dora,
Ala., was sentenced to ten years in the
state penitentiary today, having been
convicted on a charge of murder in
the second degree.
It is said that Daniels went into the
black belt and became peeved because
he could not secure moonshine whis
key. At a grocery store owned by a
black man an argument and fist fight
ensued with one of the black men.
Daniels drew his gun when he found
himself getting the worst of the en
counter and fired at the black man.
His aim was poor and instead of strik
ing his man he missed and struck
Mrs. W. H. Bailenger, a white woman.
She died instantly.
Witnesses at the trial testified that
Daniels was a bully and had deliber
ately started the trouble, and it was
his careless and reckless shooting that
caused the death of the lady. Daniels'
lawyer remarked to the jury that if
the shot had killed the black man that
the officer would have been acquitted
and that therefore it could not be
termed murder. The court held that
fit was futile to talk about that angle,
because he missed the black man and
killed the white woman.

ADVERTISING is the
modern conception of

is the connecing link be
