While America is puzzled over her problems, we
find that our race problem is the most outstanding of
any other group.
America affords many Negroes of culture, univer
sity honors and well trained business sense. The Negro
es are suffering from hard times more than any other
group bee n e are the first let out of employment and
the last rehired. We want a new attitude of expression
from our white brothers. We want colored represent
or ion. There must be an understanding and a cultivation
of friendships between the races as we have never had
We are not only pleading for world co-operation,
but community co-operation; to act or work jointly, to
produ< same effect. We must have that new atti
tude, an attitude that will impel the business men who
have the administration in hand to cease excluding Ne
grc rn public works employment and stop discharg
faithful Negroes of yeafs service and replacing them
Groups solidarity is the best means of co-operation.
Let's get together on colored representation for the serv
ice represented in this new phase will be for greater val
ue to the community and to the race.

Race prejudice must go. The Fatherhood of God
and the Brotherhood of Man must prevail. These are
the only principles which will stand the acid test of good
citizenship in time of peace, war and death.
(1) We must have our pro-rata of employment in
businesses to which we give our patronage, such as groc
ery stores, laundries, furniture stores, department stores
and coal companies, in fact every concern whieh we sup
port. We must give our citizens the chance to live res
pectably. We are tired of educating our children and
permitting them to remain economic slaves and enter ki
te lives of shame.
(2) Our pro-rata of employment for the patronage
to our pubMc corporations such as railroad companies,
the street ear company, the Nebraska Power Company,
the Northwestern Beil Telephone Company and other
establishments whieh we are forced to support by right
of franchise. Also our pro-rata of employment in re
turn for the taxes we pay in our city, county state and
(3) To encourage the establishment of a first class
hospital that we may get the best that there is in medical
science from our doctors whom we know to be nearest us,
also to encourage a high respect of them and encourage
more of our girls to take nurse training.
(4) A one hundred per cent deportment of our cit
izens in our public or private places of business, especial
ly on street cars. If we are to be respected we must act
respectably, especially in public places where we are con
stantly before the public’s eye.
(5) A one hundred per cent membership in the Om
aha branch of the NAACP. should be had to encourage
the efforts put forth by the founders of the organization
and to assist the general office to establish a five million
dollar endowment fund to maintain operating expenses
and to further the principles of the NAACP. Ail peo
ple of all races must be educated up to a higher principle
and a more thorough understanding of interracial rela
tionship that our country may in reality, be a government
of the people, for the people and by the people in whole
and not in part.
(6) The re-establishment of the Christian Religion
as Christ taught it, for the uplifting of mankind, elimin
ating financial and personal gain. A practical Christian
Religion, week day as well as Sunday. An attitude to
ward our fellowman as a brother in order to establish a
principle which will guide the destiny of each other’s
children; our neighbor’s children today are our children
(7) Courteous treatment in all places of business
and the enforcement of the State Civil Right Law.
(8) To encourage and assist in the establishment of
the following financial institutions near 24th and Lake
Streets: A.building and loan association, a state bank,
administering aid and assistance to our widows and
(9) To encourage the erection of a one hundred
thousand dollar Young Men’s Christian Association
Building near 24th and Lake Streets.
(10) To enlarge the Young Women’s Christian As
sociation that it may supply sufficient dormitory accom
(11) To teach our citizens to live economically with
in their earning capacity by printing in each issue a bud
get system for various salaries.
(12) To make Omaha a better city in which to live
by inaugurating a more cosmopolitan spirit among our
(13 To put a stop to the Divorce Evil by passing a
State law making the mistreatment of a wife or a hus
band by either of them, a criminal offense to be decided
by a jury, first offense, jail sentence of a short duration;
from one to five years in the penitentiary. This, we be
lieve will make men and women think before marrying,
second offense, one of longer duration; third offense,
(14) We must become owners of the city govern
ment by paying a seemingly higher salary to those whom
we employ to administer its affairs, a salary that will st
and, also, a first-class trust company for the purpose of
tract men of high calibre.
(1) Fight for a passage of the Dyer Anti-Lynch Bill
and thus stop the shamful lynching of American citizens.
(2) One of our citizens in the president’s cabinet.
(3) Federal control of the educational system that
every child must have a high school education.
(4) Assist in the furtherance of research by our
scientists and historians to prove that civilization was
first founded in Africa.
(5) Establish a political influence which will bring
about our pro-rata of higher appointments made by our
(6) Stop graft in politics by passing a Federal Law
making election day a legal holiday and compelling every
American citizen of voting age to vote.
(7) Prevent further wars by teaching the so-called
white race that it is high time for them to quit fooling
themselves about white supremacy with only three-tenths
of the world’s population. They must be taught that
color is due to climatic conditions. They must be taught
that seven-tenths of the world’s population is made up of
darker races. They must be taught that the rays of sun
that blaze upon the equator and turn the skin brown do
not affect the power of the brain any more than the cold
ness of icy glaciers affect the brain of the white race;
and that the darker races will not continue to be crushed
by a money mad few. If the Fatherhood of God and the
Brotherhood of Man are not welded into the hearts of this
world’s family now, by teaching the principles laid down
by our Saviour, it will be welded into the hearts of our
children some day soon, on the bloodiest battlefields this
world has ever known.
(8) Cut down congressional representation from
the Southern States in proportion to the number of votes
The OMAHA GUIDE will put forth its best efforts
to bring about the above 22 points with the assistance of
those who believe it is for the best Interest of good Amer
