plainant. - The spirit to divide the race
along denominational lines In the
celebration of Emancipation Day is
a bad spirit, and not conducive to
the highest good and welfare of the
entire people. We do not feel that
such a tspij'it could be condemned
in too severe terms. Those r
sponsible for having denominational
celebrations in our judgement, ar
to be teverely criticised This oil
'ourse, does not refer to what the
colleges us institutions may do, but
it refers to the general mass of
people from a public standpoint. .
What is needed, Is that all of the
Negroes, regardless of denomination
al tenets should celebrate in untsoa
and unity, both in spirit and acclaim
the Emancipation Day. It appears
to the editor of the People's Defender
that division along this line upon ,
matters so important to all the peo
ple is entirely uncalled for and is aa
exhibition of the spirit of littleness,
and demonstrates much of the ra
malning latent capacity In the Neere
to do small things, and his incapacity
to grasp largo things and do them,
upon a universal scale as it applies
to the race. It appears that some
body simply wanted tc be boss, and
this without regard to the well-being-of
the entire people.
The People's Defender.
