No White Republican Party at the South

Washington Post Report

Interview with Ex-Gov. James Alcorn, of Mississippi

He said:   

"….If Grant had sustained me at the time of my election, there would have been a white Republican party, which would have held the State.”   

“The Southern people will not have negro rule.  The negro is not a white man with black skin.  He is a different race.  He is a barbarian, and the barbarians cannot rule civilized people. His head is covered with wool; he is a sheep.  The white man has straight hair like a lion.  The negro is an infant.  He has the flat nose, the retreating chin, the protruding lips of an infant.  It will take centuries of development to thoroughly fit him for civilization.”
