THK COLOBKD CONTROVERSY REPLY OF
ALLEN COLonED.TO SMITH. COLORED TIIK
TRUE BLUE QUESTION.
Editor Cairo Bulletin:
I noticed In tho Evening Sun ot thel3th,
an nrtlclo hoadod "A Tolntod Letter,"
from Reubon Smith, a gentleman of Af
rican descont. So, I feol It my duty to
answer said letter, as it was an answer to a
letter that I had written in The Bulle
tin of tho 12th. I would havo answered
tho gontloman soonor, but I havo jutt
loarncd that It was mo that was nlludod to.
Ho says that I don't control tho colored
voters of Cairo. I will admit that; but
I do control my own hoad and do my own
thinking, and not liko him gat others to
think for mo. Ho says in his "pointed
loltor," "I.think I seo through thls-I think
I discover somo productions of whito
brains." Let mo inform Mr. Smith that
I am happy to say that I uso mv own
brains. It is well-known that Mr. Smith
can not spell "M. B. Harrel!," for, If bo
could, ho to-day would bavo bt-on holding
tno I3iu street school houso ; so, now. lot
us look at both sides of tho caso and seo if
it is not you, Mr. Smith, that usos whito
brains instead of mo. You should not ac
cuso a man of a chargo when you aro the
guilty party yoursolf, for wo all know that
it was whito brains that wroto that "point
ol" lotlor of yours. So, if you don't want
your ignoranco shown, pleaso don't say
any moro about whlto brains.
Mr. Smith also says that ho proposos, at
an early day, to show tho colored people
how thoy havo been Imposed upon, betray
od nnd abused by ono or two unworthy
mon of their race I say: "Go in, Rubo,
I um with you thero;" but if you should
cxposo them through tho Sun, and need
colored brains, Just call on me, unless our
friend, Davis, can supply you. But I don't
think ho would do so for ho says that the
meanest man in Cairo Is a darkoy,and then
denied it to Shoros. Now, Mr. Davis, did
you mean Smith or not 7 Ploase explain ;
i or were you only joaking 7
Mr. Editor, a fow moro words about Mr.
Smith's "truo blues," as ho calls
tho colored votors of Cairo.
If thoy aro no truer than bo is, I ask
tho Lord to look down upon them. I
reckon ho has forgotten the last olection of
school directors. Ho told Mr. Ilarrell
Hint ho voted for him, and told others that
ho voted for Mr. Webb. So, bow is that
for " truo bluo 7" Now, Reuben, load up
nnd flro again, I will bo with you ovory
time and use my own ammunition, and
not borrow like you.
Yours, with many thanks, Rubo,
J. T. Allen.
