55. William Garrott Brown, “The White Peril: The Immediate Danger of the Negro,” North American Review (December 1904): 824-41.

Economic analysis of the role of African Americans in an industrialized South.

African Americans will, in turn, be relegated to jobs in the service industry unless they “learn to match the white man’s industry, his shrewdness, his forethought of the morrow.”
