Additional Details

Continuation: 'we desire in this Congress to ask President Wilson and Congress at this time to remove from the statutes of our country, all proscription laws of race discrimination of whatever kind, that we may have at home, for ourselves and our prosperity, that which we are fighting and dying for in a strange land to secure for others.' Wilson was not disposed toward people of color; and needless to say, this did not happen.
