Hints on Colonization and Abolition


With reference to the black race


The author attacks American slavery but disputes the call to instant abolition and race-mixing. He advocates the American Colonization Society’s “back-to-Africa” approach as well as a slow, political approach to ending slavery in America.

The author suggests that the law attend to what degree a mixed race person of African decent is white and free. As a Christian, it is one’s duty to pity blacks’ conditions. One solution is to free slaves and make them equal to whites. The author sees resistance to race mixing “strong and abiding,” unlikely to change. There is never perfect equality and it would be “morally impossible.” Equal rights, likewise, lead to equality of person, which is unacceptable. Return to Africa is most profitable in line with the American Colonization Society. There, they can be reformed more easily than in America. The author worries that the worst blacks will go to the colony and weaken it, hurting the cause of evangelizing them. The author defines slavery and challenges the notion that it is necessary. God would not approve of it and wishes the oppressed go free. The author defends against instant abolitionists who claim the ACS’s actions are slow and ineffective. He claims that it is morally responsible to keep a slave until better placement is found. He objects to children being born into slavery.
