Prejudice Against Color

September 24,  1858

From the Chelsea Telegraph & Pioneer, there is an article in which reference is made the record of Robert Morris, Esq.  “The world is full of prejudices of one kind or another; but among them all, perhaps there is none so singular as that which exists in the mind of the white man against his brother who happens to be born with a skin a few shades darker than his own.”   The article then speaks of Morris, praising him as one who disproves the validity of color prejudice, and is much admired  as lawyer, as Justice of the Peace , and as neighbor.
