"Cartoons Are For All," Raleigh News and Observer, June 14, 1900
Raleigh, North Carolina
In a speech in Lexington last Saturday, so we are informed, State Chairman Holton, of the Republican committee, paid his respects to the editor of the News and Observer, and said that he had to teach his Democratic subscribers by means of cartoons because they cannot read.
We do not use the cartoons for our literate or illiterate readers, but for both. We are proud to have as subscribers some good men who are uneducated who take the paper for their wives and children to read. We do not propose to disfranchise these uneducated readers or any other uneducated white men. There are many good men who cannot read that could teach Holton lessons in good government and in politics. They know they will be protected, and Holton will not help his case by telling them that the Winston negroes can read Greek better than they can read English. They know better.
