PASTOR TELLS OF NEW
RACE PROBLEM IDEAS
Rev. Sutton E. Griggs Addresses Baptists on
Courses Negroes Can Follow in Meet
ing Their Problems.
Newark. N. J.. Sept. tt?Tfce Rev.
Sutton E. Grigs?, of Memphis, to
night addressed the National Bap
tist convention. In past years Booker
T. Washington made the principal
address Oiscussing race problem*.
Rev. Origg.' sUM In part:
"There are seme things in our uni
verse that remain unchanged ty th'
flow of tim? and the eorrt.ig of new
conditions. , Men are born and die;
they sleep and dream, and awake and
digest their food now as always. We
have no need to be on the alert for
anv changes In these fundamental
processes which are ever the sam?
among all men in a'l a^es. Hut n'jt
so with' what the world thi"??.
Thought i> not one of the unchange
able things ol ihe universe.
?Opinions as to the proper r'-lationr,
that should exist between different
races have varied from age to "K
In lfcl B. C.. Moses, up to that time
the world s greatest religious leader,
expressed himself on a race question
affecting his people in these wards.
Thou shalt blot out the remembrance
of Amalec from und^r heaven.'
"In 1519. In the city of 'Nashville.
Tenn. at a conference called by
Christian white men in an effort^*
patch up certain differences existmg
whollv within the ranks of colored
men. Dr. J. B. Gambrell. white, sakl:
?I ask nothing for myself nor for my
children after me that I would deny
to members of the negro race.'
"Let it be understood in passing
that we ra*ch the true meaning of
the utterance of Dr. Gambrell. \\ e
know that he wants the perpetuity
of the white race as a white rac
and would aid negroes in the fur
theiance of a like ambition for
themselves. He would like to have
all the legitimate human needs of
his people satisfied, and he would
have the same for th<* negrot-s.
With these two posts marking the
goal line he would press forward.
This digression must be pardoned
as the ghost of social interming
1 ling is sought for in almost all
that men say and do concerning
race questions, and it is sometimes
profitable to proclaim his absence.
"The question may be asked as
to what tan be the practical value
of a discussion of what the world
thought U on race questions. In an
swer we say no man. however high
or low. can afford to be indifferent to
|world opinion. Its reach is great and
its grasp is powerful.
"Jesus, the Christ. brought to a
world operating along lines of the
survival of the fittest the doctrine of
the bcotherhood of man. of love for
the other fellow-altruism. The rush
i of his blood from a broken heart
through a pierced side, down to mother
earth, planted in her bosom the seeds
1 of altruism which have borne fruit
that has shaped the destiny of the
whole human family. It was this al
truism that begot the potent doctrine
of the native equality of all men.
"This doctrine found its largest ex
pression in the period covering the lat
ter part of the eighteenth century
and ihe greater portion of the nine
teenth. In 1T92. which was near the
close of the eighteenth century, a mo
tion was carried in the English House
of Commons providing for the gradual
abolition of the slave traffic. In l.??
the French convention decreed that
the rights of French citiiens should
be granted to all slaves In French
colonies. In ISM the British abolished
slavery entirely within their domin
ions. In IMS French slaves were
emancipated. In 1S63 the Dutch set
their slaves free.
"The South, unmoved by world
thought. clung to its slaves, but they
I were violently torn from her gnasp in
the Civil War. Under the impulse of
the doctrine of the native equality of
all men the Fifteenth Amendment to
the Constitution of the United States,
forbidding the denial of the right to
vote because of *race. color, or previ
ous condition of servitude.' was
adopted in the year 1869 In the year
1870. bills were passed by Congress
providing fines and imprisonment for
anyone who even tried to prevent the
negro from voting or to keep hts
vote from being counted.
"But all of the forces that couW-be
marshalled have not up to tho present
time been- able to move our nation or
the world one inch forward In a
straight line from this point. The
action just mentioned stands as the
last recorded national act deaignea
to incorporate the negro race in the
governmental structure without reser
vations. Further efforts were made by
powerful forces but all have proved
to be abortive.
"In 1*75" a very comprehensive bill,
intended to make the negroes of the
.South secure in their rights, passed
the lower House of Congress, but was
defeated In the Senate. Some years
later the Lodge election bill, having
the same purpose, passed the House,
but was defeated in the Senate. The
Republican party's platform upon
wht^h president Taft was ejected con
tained an unequivocal declaration in
favor of enforcing the Fifteenth
Amendment in letter and spirit, but
no legislation in that direction was at
tempted during hts term of office. To
liny the agitation for the enactment of
legislation based upon the doctrine of
the native equality of all men is lea
mainly by groups of negro leaders. Not
at- outstanding leader of the white
race in any official position In any
part of the country has announced
an active policy In this direction.
"What brought the movement to a
close' Why is the world deaf to pleas
for its removal? It was thought by
some that the world war for democ
racy would breathe new life in the
doctrine of the i.nlivi1 equality or all
men. but it is now icen that it has not
done so. Why ?
"The world hesan to feel the need
of the resot ices of all the world.
For example, the allies needed the
oil fields of Mexico to (jelp them to
win the world war since the world
feels the need of the world's cf
\ sources, if races that are camped
over <hese ^resources do not and
I cannot gather them and pass them
I out to the world, and will not let
I others do so in peace and safety,
then let those raccs be taken In
i charge. This conception of a world
need demanded a justifying philos
l ophv before the moral forces could
[ be mustered to put this policy In
' operation. %
I "Necessity is not only the
1 motker of invention, but it frlso is
tho cause of Investigations that
lead to new systems of thought. The
advanced section of mankind stood
before zones that it could not enter
and possess as was the rase' with
North America. If men of the ad
vanced races could not go in anJ
outnumber the occupying people of
other races, how were the resources
of these countries to be pattered
and utilized? There now cam" a
recpening of the question of equal
ity among men. A new standard of
measurement was instituted. M?n
were studied, not as individuals,
hut as members of society. Th? y
were now to be Judged. not by what
they were as individuals, but what
they wore as teams and team mate*.
"The advanced section of the
world today has each one of you
standing against the wall, let us
say. not to be measured by the
height of your body, nor the beauty
and carrying power of your voice,
nor the strength of your intellect,
nor the size of your purse, nor
your courage upon the field of bat
1 tie. but by your capacity for hand
ling the civic duties of man.
| "In our own country we find that
I insistence upon unrestricted privi
I leges for negroes stops at points
where such action would result in
having the group-expression pre
i dominatingly shaped by members of
j the negro race. # r
i "Thus we have before us the
'opinion of the world today that a
i race possessing social efficiency in
la high degree ha^s the moral right
of rulership over a race not exhib
iting the faculty, provided always
| that individuals shall have all of
I their natural rights of men. with
jthe understanding that these right*
! are not construed so as to result in
giving trroup control to those not
Tranifesting a prop' r degree *?f so
, cial efficiency.
The very practical question that
presents itself to the negroes of the
world is as to what is to be* their
method of dealing with this new
World thought. There are three
courscs of action open for the rmc
to attempt to pursue. It can attempt
to ignore the demand 'or. the devel
opment of social efficiency, and can
attempt lo seize control wherever
their numbers constitute ji majority.
? second course is to attempt to
convince the world that it Is tjie
part of wisdom for it to go back to
the unmodified doctrine of the native
equality of men and leave out or
consideration all questions of social
efficiency when reaching decisions
?There is a third course. Tne
negro race can decide to qualify
under the new requirements. We
come forward as individuals There
stand our Dduglass. our Washing
ton. our Dunbar, our Kelly Miller,
our PuBois. our Walker, our Trot
ter. our John Mitchell, jr.. and our
Morris. We can now accept the
challenge to come forward in our
social capacities. We can decide to
try to heal needless breaches in our
life as a race which unduly tax our
energies with contests with each
other. We can devote increased at
tention to reducing our death-rate
'to caring for orphans, to providing
avenues for expansion for our young
people, to the teaching of the habit
of saving, to the reduction of our
| percentage of criminality. to the
amassing of property and to mat
it era of education.
"Social efficiency will enable us
! to do such mairnifleerrt Vhings that
jit will add respect to men's minds
'? as a factor in solving all of our
I problems. Just think of attempt
| ing anything with full respect lack
ing in the mind of the person to be
approached. And say what you will,
the. races that have attained unto
| social efficiency do not fully respect
|tl>e races that are not regarded aa
i having done yo."
