Speaker or author: editor
Newspaper or publication: Colored American (1837 - 1842)
The writer makes a distinction between "political action" and "moral action" regarding the issues of slavery and emancipation. He tells his readers that some abolitionists are acting only as it serves their political purposes, not as a moral obligation to God. He urges his readers to continue going to the polls, but to cast their votes for what is religiously right, not what is best for the political party.
