. . . compared to this politician who advocated the deportation of all black people; announced that he favored a “superior position” in society for white people; argued for “the separation of the races” and the outlawing of inter-racial marriage; declared that the U.S. government was “for the white people” only; championed “black codes” that stripped black people of citizenship; opposed “making voters or jurors of Negroes”; wanted large sections of the U.S. reserved for white people only; and whose birthday is celebrated today, February 12, as a national holiday.
