Unknown – White Savior Trope

“Let them lay aside for the present at least all political aspiration and allow the united white men to do what it is utter folly for the negro to resist, and dictate the political complexion of the country. The history of the whole South since the emancipation of the negro has show that the white man will be the controlling power in the country. – The resistance of the colored man to this fiat of nature has led to all the troubles between the races, and in one shape or another the conflict will continue just as long as the colored race aspire to be the governing power. It is all very well to preach up the abstract principles of equal rights, and the will of the majority, &c., but since the creation of the world the most vigorous have always governed, and the same will be the case until its end.”28
