Senator France Has His Eye on Rich
Continent Formerly Owned by
German Empire
(Uy The Associated Negro Press)
Baltimore, Md.Dcc. 30. The de
velopment of Africa and the recently
owned German colonies in that con
tinent by white and Colored Ameri
cans was advocated by Senator Joseph
I. France of Maryland, in an address
recently before the National Associa
tion of Colored People at the Acad
emy of Music in Brooklyn.
Senator France suggested that the
Allies fix the German indemnity at
$15,000,000,000, crediting that nation
for the African colonies taken with
$5,000,000,000. Then he added:
"These colonics could then be sold
by the Allies to the United States for
a sum in the neighborhood of from
$5,000,000,000 to $7,000,000,000, the
Allies receiving credit in this amount
against their indebtedness to the
United States. In this way Europe
would pay a large part of her delH to
us. She would then be in a positiou
to purchase form us supplies for her
rehabilitation, the foreign exchange
situation would be relieved and re
construction would proceed rapidly.
"The United States would receive
for very dubious assets a million
square miles of territory about al
most one-third her total area and an
opportunity would be offered to white
and Colored Americans to do thir part
in co-operating with other nations in
the development of that wonderful
"I do not believe that America will
seek to evade responsibility when the
opportunity offers for sharing in the
responsibility for bringing about
world improvements. Many Colored
Americans are interested in this prob
lem and would welcome an opportun
ity of sharing inthc work pf upbuild
ing and developing the African continent.
"The time may come when we may
yetsce a great, free African republic,
which, with its material achievements
and moral triumphs, will renew in
Africa and surpass there the glories
of the golden age when the civilization
of the Egyptians wasVthc greatest in
the world."
Senator France declared that the
race problem will never be solved by
consistent and concerted efforts to
keep the Colored race in ignorance
and degredation, by depriving theni of
schools and sanitary surroundings by
recriminations, hatred, prejudice, ven
geance, violence, lynchings and burn
ings at the stake. He said it must be
solved by fearless facing of the facts,
with an acknowledgment of the fact
recognized by all the great anthropoU
ogists that the Colored races have
great mental and moral capacity, and
that they were created to fulfill a great
