Probably Extinction of the Negro Race
The New York World writer attempts to prove that case that emancipation will bring pestilence, starvation and gradual extermination to the black race in the United States. Arguing that "a state of freedom checks the growth of the negro population," the writer marshals statistics and observation to make his point. For instance, he blames the mixed race black - the mulatto - on the licentiousness of the black race, rather than even mentioning the role of whites. This is an expression of the strong racism that opposed emancipation and black equality.
The Walla Walla Statesman reprints an editorial or op-ed article from the New York World setting out the arguments against abolition of slavery.
