THE PLANET*
SATURDAY - - - May 31, 1890
WHAT IT MK\nv
Richmond, the capital of tlie late
Coufederaey hits been decorated with
eiuiileiiis of the '' Lost Cause. *'
Wiien tlie boxes eontaiuing the
bronze monument of Gen. Roln-rt P.
Lee were removed from the ears, no
flags of the Pniou ornamented the
procession. Only the stars and bars
could be seen, the "rebel yell,"
under the folds of the Mag of seces?
sion which waved proudly after
twenty-five years rent the air.
However, all vocal expressions of
disloyalty to the Inion were care?
fully discarded. The honoring of
the Confederacy was indulged in
while every one in that joyous throng,
stood-ready to declare to you that
tlie South was right and the North
was wrong. ** Not beaten but over?
powered, " they would say.
But what does this display of
Confederate emblems mean?
Wlmt dtM*s it serve to teach the
rising generations of the South?
Why this placing of Lee on equality
with Washington, Jackson with
Marion and Stuart with '* Light
Horse Harry " of other days.
This glorification of States Rights
Doctrine?the right of secession, and
the honoring of men who represented
that cause, fosters in this Republic,
the spirit of Rebellion and will ulti?
mately result in handing down to
generations unborn a legacy of
treason and blood.
There is lacking in all this display
the proper appreciation of the Union.
There is evidence that the loyalty
oft-expressed penetrates no deeper
than the surface.
It serves to reopen the wound ol
war and cause to drift further apart
the two sections. It furnishes an
opportunity for designing politician..
in both politicid parties to take ad
vantage of the situation and tht
country suffers. The South in it*
efforts to be true to its leaders gow
too far in its adulation, and whih
doing them no good, do their res pet t
ive sections much harm. ,

Richmond, Va., May 28,1890.
C..'nt lt 'nen ;
lu these days it is very hard to
teach young men proper respect for
women. In order to be at all success?
ful, we must havy "line upon line, and
precept upon precept "we must not on?
ly teach men this respect, butwemust
respect women ourselves, and strive
to have every one do thesame. This,
many of the Colored people are try
to do. They teach their young men
that they should respect all women,
and as a sign of respect, they should
address unmarried women as Miss
and married ones as Mrs. Not that
these titles make women better, but
because they show that users are
gentlemen, and in this instance, at
least, have been properly trained.
We find our task hard work at least,
and it is especially hard, since your
papers teach those of our young men
aud women, who read them impo?
liteness, by presisteutly refusing to
use any titles of respect in speaking
of our women, lu weakening the re?
spect of colored men for colored wo?
men, you weaken their respect for all
women, and you sow seeds in the
minds of young colored men, and in
the minds of young white men as
well, which will eventually ripen into
rude and disrespectful conduct to?
wards the women of all races. The
man who respects a colored woman,
will be more than apt to respect a
white woman, and vice versa.
Again, in articles which appeared
in your papers a few .months ago it
was said well and wisely, that no race
can be anything, until it learns to
respect itself. That is just what we
believe, and for that very reason we
are doing all that we can to teach
our sons and daughters respect and
love for themselves, and their race,
but here also your papers are destroy?
ing what we are trying to build up;
for in speaking of the Negro race,
your papers, (and many others), in
varably spell the word Negro with a
small letter; this is in violation to
all laws of Rhetoric, and in violation
of the principle which you .advix-af e,
You use the capitals in spelling thc
name * of all other races; in speaking
of the Indian you always spell tin
name with a capital.
The Negro alone in this country
out-number the Indians ten to on?*
The Negroes have done more for thi
good of this country in the last 2,r
years, than all of the Indians duri nj.
t he last 250 years. The Negroes art
more nearly civilized than the In
dians; the Negroes in this oountn
are worth more in property anti casi
than the Indians; the Negroes an
the friends of tho White man, whili
the Indians are his enemy, ami yet
in speaking of this race?your ene
mies, you treat it with more reepec
than you dotheNegroes.your friend*
Why this violation of all laws o
Rhetoric; why this outrage of al
sense of propriety: why this tram*.:
ling of the weak by the strong
Have Virginia Editors and news pa
per publishers lost theirsense of hon
or anti chivalry? Chivalry consis
in respecting .women and protect in;
the weak. The Bible rule ie, "Ye tha
are strong bear the infirmities of th
weak."
Wa are confident that if you gel
tlenien possess the genuine obi vii
ginia sense of honor and thivaln
that you are believers in respect fe
women , and protection for tl
weak, and that you are willing t
obey (Jot! s word, and willing to hei
us in our struggle to teach our soi
anti daughters respect for women i
every race, and love and respect fe
themselves and for their race. Th
you can do,J(and we hope you will th
by speaking of our unmarried w<
men aa Miss, and our married wornt

in printing the word Negro.
