“The white man’s liberty has been marked out for the same grave with the black man’s. The ballot box is desecrated, God’s law set at nought, armed legislators stalk the halls of Congress, freedom of speech is beaten down in the Senate. The rivers and highways are infested by border ruffians, and white men are made to feel the iron heel of slavery.”—Frederick Douglass (1857)
