7. W. S. Scarborough, “The Race Problem,” Arena (October 1890): 560-67.

Analysis of the “Negro problem” from an African American’s point of view. The author begins with these thoughts. “This question, improperly styled the ‘Negro problem,’ is in reality the white man’s question. From the negro’s standpoint the conditions that usually enter into a problem are absent and therefore the [sic] wonder why all this discussion in regard to the blacks, why this confusion, these sectional differences, this bitter strife concerning the negro’s rights,--his citizenship?” A photograph of the author appears opposite the title page.
