Haynes, Director o f Negro Economies, Hampton In stitu te, Hampton, Va. Ly dear Dr. Haynes: j?or your information the follow ing is quoted from the "Labor & Industrial Journal" - issue o f July 3, 1920 - S eattle, Wash.: "THE HELD AMD THE NEGRO ^ . „ This work among the negroes has not been neglected; i t has been widely, c le v e rly , and zealously pushed. Among those id en tified with revolutionary propaganda it is known as 'planting black dynamite'- a phrase which is highly descrip tive. Because nearly a ll o f the negroes are citize n s o f the United States, as are most o f the Communist missionaries among them, i t is d i f f ic u l t to take any decisive action to check this dangerous form o f propaganda. The aliens who foment revolution can be got at quite d ire ctly - but under present laws the revolution ist is able to hide rather safely behind the shield of his citizen sh ip . This is why the I . W. W. has been able to achieve so large a growth; it is mainly an organization o f American c itiz e n s . EORREST GUIDEEY in The Saturday Evening Post. There is no more damning evidence o f this menace than the peddling o f this 'Black Lynamite." You only need to pick up a copy o f JThe Messenger,' the Wobbly paper fo r the colored man, to see it working overtime in every ed ition . Can any white man honestly t e l l him self that we are ill-t r e a t in g the negro? On the con trary we can see for ourselves colored citizen s o f this Democracy, educated, in te llig e n t, and wealthy in every town and v illa g e . Whatever the crimes o f our forefathers in this respect, and they were universal in their time and place, our c iv iliz a t io n has made more than fu ll amends. We defy any w ell read man or woman to show us another country where the colored man has advanced to the p osition he holds in the United S tates. He has co lle g e s , apartment houses o f the most luxurious type, farms, business in stores and o ff ic e s , automobiles, in fa ct a ll Quotation - continued: the righ ts, enjoyments, p rivileges and advantages o f the American horn white man. To s t i r up this hideous racial animosity, and urge every negro to hate his fellow man is only one more vivid demonstration o f the lengths to which the d iscip les o f Comrade Lenine w ill go. T .Ve would have the colored man always remember th is: ?or every persecuted slave in the South a white boy la id down his l i f e to make him fr e e . The white man paid fo r his mistakes with blood, treasure and endless su fferin g. The least you owe this fla g is the pure devotion o f the p a trio t, and i f you ever do put up that Red Rag you w ill be right back where you began - chained to the job lik e the poor slaves in Russia, and the lash o f Lenine w ill be more b itt e r than the whip o f Simon Legre."
