Nearly five hundred of us march from college, followed by fully 2,500 colored high school graduates. How splendid a showing. Their pictures came to us so fast that we have to apologize for omitting those of the professional men and most of the high school students.-The Spingarn camp at Des Moines is in full blast. All honor to the man who proposed it.-The war is on. The nation's life is up-turned. We do our bit in spite of discrimination on all hands.-The "Bar Sinister" is another attempt to bring the Negro problem into the moving pictures. It, of course, leaves something to wish, but it is the finest and fairest yet.-A report on education for Negroes is announced by the U. S. Bureau of Education. With rare forethought the review is sent out before the books are published, which is one way to arrange public opinion.-National prohibition is coming. Let it come.-The United States is attempting to deny Asia to the Asiatics, but it is only attempting. The demands of Japan will yet be recognized and China is not fool enough to regard the United States as her friend with the Chinese exclusion act on her statue books. A PROTEST FROM THE ORIENT. I HAVE been deeply affected by the account of the racial riots in the mid-west. During my visit to this country, within the last three years I have seen many evidences of blind race and color prejudice of the worst possible kind, but the present has exceeded all precedents. To think of women and girls maltreating, beating with shoes, dragging and otherwise belaboring their sisters of the colored community, simply because of their color, is something for which even I was not prepared. It has shocked me beyond description. In my country, men in the country have many times been treated as if we belonged to your community, but that never angered me so much, as I have never had much faith in the veneer of civilization and universal brotherhood and love for democracy, which the people of European descent put on. In my humble judgment, the people have yet to learn the meaning of MANLINESS. At present, intoxicated with power, brute force in their eyes stands for manliness. Just think of numbers of men attacking, shooting and burning stray men and women in one's and two's. That is modern chivalry and bravery. Armed men killing unarmed men and women, girls of seventeen and eighteen beating in public the aged members of their own sex. CIVILIZED MEN AND WOMEN burning people alive. I am afraid, being an alien being here only by courtesy, I cannot raise my voice against these brutalities openly. It has shocked me very much to find that so far, with the exception of the Evening Post, the Press has taken no editorial notice of the outrage. Of course the best minds of the country will condemn the wrong, but I wonder if the attitude of the Press would have been the same if the victims had been the whites instead of the colored. Oh for the cursed vandalism! There can be no democracy and no
It was perfect except 1 simple accidental keyboard press extra letter. I felt bad I had to reopen. Sry :/
