Racism in the Alexandria Gazette, Part 338

Alexandria Gazette, Volume 89, Number 274, 23 November 1888

One of the negroes who were retained in office in Washington by the present administration in order to show that the colored element of the country should be recognized has been convicted of attempted outrage and robbery. Another one who was appointed to office in the same city for the same purpose is now under trial for robbing the mail. Negro recognition by a democratic administration did not have as satisfactory results as were anticipated by those who were so ignorant of negro character as to adopt such a silly idea.
