33. Wade Hampton, “The Race Problem,” Arena (July 1890): 132-38.
Call for colonization as the only viable means for solving “The Race Problem.” The author, a former Lieutenant General in the Confederate Army, is particularly critical of the Republican Party. “In their senseless advocacy of universal suffrage, they have not only thrown wide open the doors leading to American citizenship, admitting thus the Anarchist, the Communist, the Nihilist, and all the other scum of European nations, but they have injected into our body politic millions of ignorant, uneducated blacks, who have no more comprehension of our system of government than their African forefathers had.”
