McKinley assassination (African American response).
Named persons


     The Negroes will do well to follow up the advantage of the sentiment against lawlessness which means very much to them. The white man has traditions along certain lines. There is no necessity of an invasion on the part of Negroes no matter about the rigidity of the unwritten laws. The execution of the laws can be better demanded when the laws are better respected. We will not justify criminal excesses by holding up the crimes of white men. We will emulate their virtues but discard their vices. The white man is not on trial.
