Mr. Green of the District of Columbia, thought the time had passed when the million of negro voters in this country are to be deterred from casting their votes or asking their rights. he thought the colored people could not afford to lower the dignity of their manhood. He said the time had passed when bullies and bravos in any section of the country--either in the words of cities or the precincts of the country--could longer deter freemen from exercising their rights. Mr. Green was in favor of the platform as reported by the committee, and hoped that gentlemen would not attempt to dodge the responsibility of manhood and the enlarged principles laid down in the platform now being discussed. he was opposed to lowering the political standard of the Republican party. He thought such action would do as much good to the Cincinnati convention as harm to the Philadelphia republicans, who will meet in that city the coming summer to make choice of a Presidential candidate, and believed the best way to make the Cincinnati movement a success was for the friends of the Philadelphia convention to lower their standard on the subject of civil rights. He hoped the present convention would not make any concessions to the Ku Klux rebel element of the country. He wanted the platform clear and explicit on the subject of civil rights.
