Isaac Mayer Wise; The leader of the American Reform Movement viewed
Blacks as "representing all that is debased and inferior in the hopeless barbarity and heathenism of six thousand years."
He also said that "The Negro was never free; and his bondage in Africa was simply duplicated in a milder form when he was
imported here." He considered abolitionists to be "fanatics," "demagogues" and "demons of hatred and destruction,"
...and habitual revolutionaries, who feed
on excitement and delight in civil wars, German atheism coupled with American puritanism who know of no limits to their fanaticism,
visionary philanthropists and wicked preachers who have that religion which is most suitable to their congregations.
Wise's biographer, James G. Heller, said of his subject, "Clearly the Abolitionists...were men
whom he would detest and of whom he would disapprove with all the force of his soul. In his opinion they degraded religion,
used it as a tool, and proved themselves unscrupulous and intemperate." "Christian clergymen are the most violent abolitionists,"
charged Rabbi Wise, and further accused Protestant priests of causing Jefferson Davis' rebellion. "The whole host of priests
would rather see this country crushed and crippled than discard their fanaticism or give up their political influence."
"Do you think the Israelites of the South must be your white slaves," he asked, "as you in your
naturalization laws treat the foreigner, placing him below the negro?" During the Civil War he frequently intervened for the
release of Confederate Jews from Union prisons and carried on a campaign for foodstuffs for Southern Jews.
When the issues of war and peace, freedom and slavery arose, Wise, as publisher of The Israelite,
decided that "silence must henceforth be our policy, silence on all the questions of the day....But we shall be obliged to
abstain entirely from all and every commentary on the odd occurrences of the day." Historian Bertram W. Korn wrote that "Peace
and Union at any cost were his objectives in the weeks before the outbreak of war, even if the price involved the everlasting
legalization of slavery."
Rabbi Wise wrote of the Abolitionist's reaction to General Grant's Order #11 expelling Jews from
certain jurisdictions: "if so many Negroes had been injured as were Hebrews by the order of General Grant,...you would have
cried as loudly as the people of Sodom and Gomorrah; but for the white Hebrew who gave you a God and a religion, you had not
a word to say."
His rage against the Black man may have stemmed from his belief that "the Hyksos of Manetho, who
oppressed the Israelites in Egypt, were Negroes." In June, 1867, Wise visited Richmond and was bitter in his reaction to the
Blacks who seemed destined to assume control of the entire Southland. He wrote of their roaming the streets at will, while
the Whites remained in their homes. "Undoubtedly," wrote Dr. Korn, "he was absorbing the propaganda line of the defeated Confederates
when he predicted that the whites would eventually be forced to leave the South; then the negroes would be in full command
and would stimulate a flood of negro immigration from Africa."
Wise's beliefs about the Indian were somewhat more beneficent. Of the California Indians he wrote:
...though not total savages, [they] are very
primitive and ignorant....[They do] nothing besides loafing and begging....They catch trout in the river, and then sell them
to buy ammunition, shoot rabbits, birds, eat various roots and wild plants, also snakes, frogs, dogs, cats, and rats, and
say, "Me work no." In conversation with several of them I found that they have no particular home and are heathens.
Benjamin Wolfe owned a store in Richmond, Virginia which was burglarized
in 1797, and about $500 in merchandise stolen. "Three negro slaves were tried for the offence. Isaac (lucky name) and Billy
were acquitted, but on January 3, 1798, the day on which all three were brought to trial, Tom was found guilty and ordered
to be hung, at the usual place, on the second Friday of February."

Solomon Woolf of No. 9, Broad Street in Charleston advertised in the
Gazette Extraordinary of the State of South Carolina on July 15, 1784:
From the subscriber, the 8th instant, a Negro
Wench named SUSANNA, 28 or 30 years of age, about 5 feet 2 inches high, thick lips, is coal black, speaks tolerable good English.

David Yulee (born Levy) had risen to political prominence and enjoyed
the distinction of being the first Jew elected to the U.S. Senate. His strong oratory embraced the enslavement of Blacks for
the use of Whites and won him the first Senate seat from Florida. In February, 1848, he offered a resolution in reference
to New Mexico and Southern California, protesting against the abolition of slavery there on the ground that these territories
belonged to all the citizens of all the states and that slave property could therefore rightfully be brought into them. In
1850, Yulee bitterly opposed an anti-slavery resolution of the legislature of Vermont on the grounds that its language was
insulting to the South.
Florida passed her ordinance of secession on January 10, 1861, and on January 21, Yulee gave the
first speech in the Senate to announce the secession of a Southern state. "What is advisable," he said,
is the earliest possible organization of Southern
Confederacy and of a Southern Army. The North is rapidly consolidating against us upon the plan of force. A strong government,
as eight States will make, promptly organized, and a strong army with Jeff Davis for General in Chief, will bring them to
a reasonable sense of the gravity of the crisis.
Have a Southern government as soon as possible adopting the present Federal Constitution for the
time, and a Southern army.
