“With a population of 1,000 Gentry has not a solitary
Negro inhabitant. We are not prejudiced against the
colored man, but we feel that we can get along better
without his presence, and are therefore glad to have
him remain in some other town or locality. There are
plenty of white men here to do the work, ordinarily,
and a Negro population under the present conditions,
would not only be superfluous, but an annoyance and
a nuisance. We are certainly thankful that the dusky
denizens have always given our town the go by.”
