Excerpt from Slavery and the Race Problem in the South: With Special Reference to the State of GeorgiaA concise statement of the reasons which led to this publication in a permanent form may appropriately be in the nature of a Publisher's Announcement, and excerpts from correspondence relating to it will probably give the best idea of these reasons.The correspondence regarding this speech began by a letter from the writer, of which the following is a copy:"July 5th 1906."Honorable William H. Fleming: -I think that you and the whole country are to be congratulated upon your grand exposition of the principles which should guide the South, and indeed the whole country, in dealing with the problem of the negro race.I have for several years spent my winters in Africa, and have studied the conditions of the African upon his own ground, having penetrated to the equatorial countries of the Uganda and the Congo State, in addition to traveling the whole extent of the Soudan, and while I agree with you in your statement that "God knows the South wants no more of that curse," of slavery, and while I agree with the general statement that "slavery is the sum of all evils," I have come to the conclusion that the greatest wrong which slavery inflicts upon a people is not upon the slave, but upon the slaveholder. No matter how greatly the slave is degraded, the evil effects to the superior race that holds the slave is in my opinion the greater wrong of the two to the general civilization of the world.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
