Black Abolitionist Archive
Subtitle: Increase of Prejudice.
Speaker or author: editor
Newspaper or publication: Colored American (1837 - 1842)
The writer tells his readers that those opposed to the work of abolitionists have accused them of increasing prejudice. He believes the only change that may be influencing prejudice is that the rights provided to African Americans in the past as "favors" are now demanded by them as part of their civil rights as members of a free society. The shift in perspective is proving difficult for some white citizens to make.
