The writer responds to an article published in Frederick Douglass' Paper regarding the status of African Americans living in Canada. He also responds to the idea of maintaining a home for refugees in Canada for African American immigrants there. He tells his readers that the implication is that former slaves cannot take care of themselves. He finds the ideas from this article -- and those from a conference held in the U.S. on this subject -- misleading and absurd. He believes the U.S. has a distorted view of how people of African descent live in Canada.
