[Hsrrieonburg, Va., Spirit of the Val
Ihe Richmond Times eonelndes an
artisle on the ao-ealled "Jim Crow"
eara with this paragraph: "We again
make the point that the white people
of \ irginia have no diaposition to hu
miliate the blaok man, or to impose
anv unneeessarv hardship upon him.
If, therefore, the "Jim Crow" oar ia
eatablished by lsw, it will be becauae
insolent and ill-msnnered Negroea
have foreed it. If the Negro insista
upon being rude and riotoua aad inde
oent in publie he cannot expect to be
tolerated by decent people."
Now, we have no doubt that the
writer who penned the paragraph Just
quoted really tbinks thst he ia not
lnlluenced by race prejudice, but
every impsrtisl insn will see that he
is. Buppoee a few persons belongi *g
to any nationality were oocasionaliy
disorderly would the Times want aep
arate cars for them? We have occa
sionaiiy aeen men of aU nationalities
commit rude and disorderly acts upon
tbe cars, but we never heard that all
people of such nationalities were to be
compelled by law to nde in eara to
taeuiaslves. l'his ought to prove to
the l'imes that thia movement is
founded on race prejudice. This
prejudice, whieh is aiwayseasy to ex
cite, haa been seduou?)y kept alive by
sma 1 calibre politicians who haven't
brains enough to comprehend real
questions of State. Of eouse it is un
necessary to say that the last aentence
was not aimed at the Times.
