1 mutely one-tenth of the total population thereof, in view of the fact of our loyalty and pa
triotic devotion to our Country, because of our awakened sense of justice and freedom as

j right to enjoy the blesoing of life, liberty, property and the purtuit of happiness as ordained
I by the Constitution of the United States, for which wc have so freely and ungrudgingly
I sacrificed our blood and our lives; believing, that discrimination and prejudice. Jim Crow-
ism and disfranchisement, mob violence and injustice, which exist :.n certain sections of the
United States, is tiic result of Class Legislation and the non-enforcement of the 14th and
13th Amendments to the Constitution, and that it is the blackest blot on the pages of Amcri-
can history, that in the end it will ultimately destroy, if not checked at the proper time, the
very fabric of Constitutional Government, do hereby, in the name of God and Humanity,
through the good office of the National Negro Constitutional Conservation League of Amer
ica, most solemnly and sincerely petition you to enforce, by proper legislation, and pass such
laws as will make inoperative, null and void, all such State Laws as conflict with, and make
ineffective, the 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution of the United States.
