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. Had on when she went away, a blue

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
Have a Southern government as soon as possible
adopting the present Federal Constitution for the time, and a Southern army.
