It may be regrettable, but it is undoubtedly a truism, that "public opinion" is often the product of slogans. Ask the average American in the street what is our greatest symbol of Sanctuary, and nine times out of ten he or she will suggest the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island in New York Harbor. "Isn't it a symbol of free immigration?" they will ponder. Few Americans realize that the Statue of Liberty was a gift of friendship from France to the United States, and that the slogan "Give me your tired, your hungry, etc." was inscribed on the plinth much later. The original statue had nothing to do with immigration. The slogan—written by one Emma Lazarus—was added only after Ellis Island became an immigration transit station. Ask the average American what Thomas Jefferson had to say about race relations, and he or she will undoubtedly quote the slogan inscribed on the Jefferson Monument in Washington, DC: "Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free." However, what Mr. Average is unlikely to know is the sentence which followed: "Nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government." Ask again who freed the slaves and why, and the man-in-thestreet will correctly suggest Abraham Lincoln, but will undoubtedly have the idea that this was to make American citizens out of the Negroes. Nothing could be further from the truth. Lincoln freed the slaves so that they could be repatriated to Africa. Several times he spoke out against racial integration, and vociferously condemned the idea of having Negro American citizens. This little book fills in the gaps the regular History books leave out. We will leave it to the reader to determine why it is these gaps exist. FOREWORD TO THE SECOND EDITION. Throughout his adult life the author of this pamphlet had one goal: the settlement of the race problem in the United States. After years of study and contact with Negroes, he was convinced that the problem has no solution save in one or the other of two forms—separation of the races or amalgamation. Convinced that separation is preferable to amalgamation, Earnest Sevier Cox worked with Negro leaders of the "Back-to-Africa" movement, and kept in touch with some of them until his death in April of 1966. In this pamphlet he shows that Abraham Lincoln repeatedly advocated repatriation of the American Negro in a land of his own where the race would not lose it purity; that, contrary to allegations from some sources that Lincoln changed his views regarding this matter, he was making plans to establish a colony in Africa for American Negroes a few days before he was assassinated. The efforts of Lincoln, Madison, Jefferson, Clay, Webster, Grant and other prominent Americans to promote repatriation of the Negro are dealt with in Cox's White America. which book is his most complete, and is recognized as one of the best studies of the race problem in America ever written. Lincoln's Negro Policy first appeared in 1938. Readers of today will recognize that every element of the race problem has remained the same, except more sharply defined as our Nation slides toward a chaos made inevitable by the cowardly refusal of whites in America to face up to racial realities and to recognize and support Negro nationalism. Since 1938 Negro nationalism has grown far faster among Negroes than assimilation-ism, in spite of billions of dollars which have been expended by white assimilationists to propagandize Negroes, and in spite of a press uniformly unfavorable to all manifestations of nationalism among Negroes. Small wonder that some Negroes have been forced to turn to violence in their uncompromising struggle for the racial integrity, freedom and dignity that should be the right of every race, while the professional agitators who preach assimilation have been the recipients of "peace" awards, unlimited amounts of publicity and money and oceans of maudlin tears shed by hypocrites who demand racial integration for others but who would never dream of living in a Negro neighborhood themselves. This book is reprinted as a memorial to Earnest Sevier Cox, and to the timeless ideals for which he fought throughout a life of self-sacrifice and single-minded dedication. Those ideals are more valid and urgent today than during his life; and if that life helps others to see the truth with a quicker insight, so as to contribute to the one and only responsible solution of America's greatest problem—the race problem—then his works in death will bear a significance of the greatest magnitude. ...
