Excerpt from The Silent South: Together With the Freedman's Case in Equity and the Convict Lease System

No comparable entanglement was ever drawn round itself by any other modern nation with so serene a disregard of its ultimate issue, or with a more distinct national responsibility. The Afri can Slave was brought here by cruel force, and with everybody's consent except his own. Every where the practice was favored as a measure of common aggrandizement. When a few men and women protested, they were mobbed in the pub lic interest, with the public consent. There rests, therefore, a moral responsibility on the whole na tion never to lose sight of the results of African American Slavery until they cease to work mis chief and injustice.
