DR. GEORGE ELLIOTT HOWARD
ADVANCES DOCTRINE OF PO
TENTIAL EQUALITY OF RACKS
IN ADDRESS BEFORE OPEN
(From the Monitor, Omaha, Neb.)
Race prejudice was held as retard
ing mo aeveiopmeni ot me bouui aim i
her people and as a false and costly
dogma in the face of the refutation of
the dogma that Negroes are potential
ly an Inferior race, morally and intel
lectually, by Dr. George Elliott How
ard, head of the department of politi
cal science and sociology of the Uni-
versity of Nebraska at All Souls';
Church, Lincoln, Sunday evening.
Dr, Howard addressed the first
meeting of the new Lincoln open
forum. After hia address he answered
quostions put by several members of
the audience and later spoke with
Sarah McWilliams, an aged Negro
woman who said that she had known
slavery In her childhood. Dr. How
ard's address held closely the atten
tion of his hearers, many of whom
were Negroes. He said:
"Every race has regarded itself as
superior to all other races and every
race lias been mistaken. Such belief
Is contrary to Christian Ideals, which
have the same value for the souls of
Among heathen and Christian peo
ples alike, one of the most contempta
ble and harmful of man's failings Is
race prejudice. It has been the cause
of persecution and unfairness. Every
where such prejudice is a sinister
factor In the advancement of tho na
tion It agects. Science has proven the
doctrine that races are potentially the
same spiritually. Modern science does
not regard the color of the skin, curl j
of the hair or shape of the shin bone
as indicative of the value of a man's
Race Prejudice Deeply rooted.
"Race prejudice may become deeply
enrooted by the enslavement for 300
years by one race of another and in
one aspect of the question the Negro
problem, I challenge your attention to
night. What is the price which the
nation Is paying for it? In the end the
solution of the southern race problem
Is to come through the education of
tho white race. Race prejudice is 1m
plan'lid in the social standards of the
south. Raising of a people's ideal is
a slow process. They have themselves
erected a harrier to the advancement
of the Negro intellectually. This is
a great mistake. ' The advancement of
the south in the past hundred years
has been greatly retarded by this
false race dogma, but it looks back to
tho carpet bagger and other things of
the past to atone for its weakness of
tho present. With almost childish
helplessness ltMpes this.

that tho Negro is lower potentially.
It is time that the whites emancipated
themselves from mental bondage. They
look back to the good old days when
the Negro "knew his place meanwhile
every year the doctrine of tho inherent
potentiality of all races subject to en
vironment and opportunity, grows

V'The white south does not know
the Negro although it claims full
knowledge of him. It cannot see tho
forest for the trees. Who has not
heard the pet Raying of the affection
t.ho master's child hold for its Negro
nurso in the old days or, slavery tho
southerner's argument for the good
old slavery days?
Figures on Progress. ,
"I will quote yon a few statistic
to show you Negro 'retrogression' In
fifty years, from 1S(!6 to 1914. Num
ber of Negro homes owned by their
occupants increased from tC.ono to
(100,000; farms owned by Negroes,
200.000 to 9S1.000: wenlth of Negroes,
$20,000,000 to $100,000,000; percentago
jable to i-ead or write, 10, per eYnt to
I 75 per cent; number of Negro colleges
land schools, 15 to ."00; Negro church-
property value increasod from $1,500,
000 to $70,000,000.
The Russian serfs were emanci
pated in 1SG1 but in fifty years their
wwilth only reached $.'!(! per rapita
as compared with $70 for tho Ameri
can Negroes and only 30 per cent ol
thorn can read or write.
There is a -distinct fancy In the
Smith that education cannot lift tho
Negro. The whites often boast, that
they pay taxes to run Negro schools,
but Negroes are not given their just
share of the school tax money. In
Louisiana $2 per capita is paid to edu
cate Negro children and $49.54 to ed-
"(ate wni,e children. With ludicrous
although pathotic zeal the southerner
often ostracizes you If you call Ne
groes "Mr." or "Mrs." He points to
higher death rate among the Negro
peoples in tho south, but ho can find
that, tho Negro death rate in Chicago
Is lower than the white death rate.
He clings to the false doctrine that
the Negro is more unelenn morally
than the white and is delaying pro
gress further by this dogma. It is de
clared that the ruling passion of the
Negro Is to despoil white women, but
In the fare of this terrible psychology
the white man Is far more guilty
In his relations toward the Ne
gro women. Immorality among tho
Negro women is not nearly as wtda
as before the war.
Negroes Deserve Assistance.
"The freed Negroes are in sore
need of all the aid the other class can
give them. Their efforts challenge elf
who closest sympathy. Ten million
of them are going to dwell with us for
a long time and the south should have
realized this and taken a different at
titude. In the south, they will tell
you that the reason why they havo
JuvM1e courts, associated charities
and .why, the chain gang Is retained"-
Ilea In the race dogma,
"Misregeneration is chiefly the white
man's fault. The discrimination
against Negroes on the southern rail
ways Is Inexcusable. They are treat
ed unjustly in the courts. If tho
white people themselves can be en
lightened with the Negroes the solur
tlon of the race question In the south;
