Title: Colored American - June 30, 1838

Speaker or author: editor

Newspaper or publication: Colored American (1837 - 1842)

The writer is dismayed by the attention to the idea of mixing of the races (amalgamation) that seems to be the focus of those in favor of colonization. The fear is that freedom will encourage amalgamation, which he assures the white population is not an issue. He points to southern slavery as more conducive to amalgamation. Encouraging this fear is more a ploy by colonizationists than any real threat to society.
