Subtitle: A Word About Those Insurrections.
Speaker or author: editor
Newspaper or publication: Weekly Anglo-African (1859 - 1862)
The writer criticizes the New York Herald's reporting of possible violent slave insurrection. By exaggerating the potential for "warfare" and bloody uprising against their masters, this newspaper has succeeded in encouraging fears and continued oppression among the white population in the country. The writer offers the voice of reason to counter this extreme opinion.
