THE NEGRO RACE
ANTHROPOLOGISTS, ethnol
** ogists and sociologists, and
nearly all the authoritative writ
ers have seen fit to rate he
Negro as the lowest race among
all the other races, simply be
cause they have seen that in our
present civilization the Negro
has accomplished, by himself,
less than any other racial group.
The Negro should forget almost
everything else but that he is
a man, and as such has a seri
ous responsibility to perform a
gigantic task in life. That duty
Mrs. Elinor White-Neeley
and the corresponding respon
sibility is to force him to the
j creation and bringing about .of
j all those things that are neces
j sary for human comfort, human
happiness, human peace and
j general security.
The White man today rates
himself as being he leader of all
races, not because of his color,
but because of his achievements.
Tomorrow, in the centuries to
come, the yellow man of Asia
may so rate himself, with all
rights and privileges such as
are now enjoyed by the White
man. Will the Negro not struggle
toward such an ideal so that he,
too, may hold the reins of world
control because of his accom
plishments? This is possible,
fellowmen, but it must be achiev
ed through the strenuous effort
of racial character-building.
Each and every member of
the race must fully realize his
responsibility. He must make
up his mind not to be subservi
ent; not to be suppliant; not to
be a beggar; but to be a doer,
an accomplisher, a creator of
all that is necessary in the en
vironment of man, whilst living
“a subject of the Greater Crea
tor. The White man seems to
realize the supremacy of God’s
creation, and the possibility of
man’s creation also, and so
whilst God has created for him
a Universe, he creates a world
to suit himself.
Create Your World.
When will the black man cre
ate his world? When will he
blast the hills and conquftr the
plains? When will he harness
the rivers and bring under his
subjection the seas? When will
he negotiate the air and find out
the mysteries therein? When will
he delve independently into the
realms of science and philoso
phy and pick out an independ ^
ent invention that transcends
any yet known to the world?
Not until these things are done
with the mastery ot the human
ninds and by the Negro—will he
be transferred from the foot of
the human race to the top,
where he once was when he
•ave light and leading to the
world on the banks of the Nile,
i he greater accomplishments of
lumanity are well possible to
the Negro today, because they
were in ages past.
As much as the White man
may boast of his glorious deeds
today, the fact remains that what
he now knows was inherited
from the original mind of the
black man who made Egypt,
Carthage and Babylon, the cen
ters of civilization that were not
known to the unskilled and
savage men of Europe- We say
with courage, to all black men,
do not be despondent, do not,
even for an instant, feel your
self unfit, because if you will
but fall back upon the strength
and possibilities of your own
mind, and the stubbornness of
your own character, you can
climb the highest mountains of
human intellect. Be not persuad
ed by sycophantic leaders who
have tried to compromise our
relationships with other races.
The leader who inspire you to
try to change your color; or
the leader who influences you
