We call attention of onr people to
the fact that the achools of onr city
will soon open, and when they do, let
every boy aud girl be put in school.
The race needs all of the education it
can get. We will need it in many ways
in the future. The time has already
come in three states of the south where
. a mau caunot vote who cannot iea<]
and write, and it is our opinion that,
ere long, it will be so in every state.
Then tlfcre will, from time to time,
•rise qu« t'.ons of serious monent,
which will require only intelligent
men and women to settle them. The ■
one is not properly titled for life with
out some education. He certainly
makes a better citizen who
has education. Especially is this
true of the colored - man, as is
recognized by the white people of the
south. In support of the above state
ment, we quota from the Atlanta Con
stitution the following, which appear
ed only a few days ago in answer
to Bishop Holsey’a letter concerning
segregation. The Conatitutiou said:
Bishop Holsey insists that the more uuarly
the Negroes attain to the standard of Anglu-
conlltet there will be as the result of tuber
ent raw prejudice. But is it not obvious to
nil that the bust educated aud most respec
table Negroes are the very oues whose elmr
aeter ami condu -t eoinnieud them to the
whites ? Are they not the very one* who
may he depended on to curb the folly of the
ignorant? How many industrious and well
eduent“d Negroes have been lynched in the
Mouth? Not one. How many Industrious
and fuirly-ediieated negroes stand In fear of
mob law ns the result of r.ieout lynchings ?
The above is argument enough iu
favor of education, to convince the
most skeptical. Lot us see that our
boys aud girls are in school and when
they are onoe in school lot them *tny
till they |jave learned something.
