A vote for Tammany Hall is a vote wasted

Note: Fred Moore, my father’s candidate of choice, was the publisher of The New York Age at that time.

The lesser of ‘two evils’

21 Jun

Presented with the choice of trusting their fate to the British or the architects of America’s Jim Crow South, at least one Caribbean chooses the former for those he left behind in Barbados. Funny, my mother always portrayed my dad as being a staunchly proud  naturalized American. I took that to mean he was uncritical. Not so, apparently.

George Harris: Negro traitor

18 Jun

Haven’t found out much about George Harris, but it is interesting the a “newspaper man” would be running for office. It’s clear Ebenezer didn’t think much of  Harris. He suggests that he looks like a bulldog, that he is being used by his white predecessor to attempt to “jar the wheels off Negro progress.” In previous columns he urged readers to vote for Harris’ opponent Fred Moore, who I recently discovered was also a newspaper man  – the editor of  of the New York Age. So not only are two newspapermen running for office, but my dad is endorsing the man who essentially signs his paycheck!  Even after Moore prevailed, Ebenezer saw fit to kick Harris  one more time.
