Cleveland Loss Due to Recognition of Negroes – Alexandria Gazette

Alexandria Gazette, Volume 89, Number 264, 8 November 1888

Mr. [Grover] Cleveland, gave some of the best places at his disposal to negroes in order, as he said, that the colored citizens of the country should be recognized. The colored citizens in New York and Indiana, by voting solidly against Mr. Cleveland, gave both of those states to Mr. Harrison, and thereby elected him. Mr. Cleveland’s recognition of the negroes was bad for the Democratic party.
