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.
