English: "The two platforms" From a series of racist posters attacking Radical Republican exponents of black suffrage, issued during the 1866 Pennsylvania gubernatorial race. (See "The Constitutional Amendment," no. 1866-5.) The poster specifically characterizes Democratic candidate Hiester Clymer's platform as "for the White Man," represented here by the idealized head of a young man. (Clymer ran on a white-supremacy platform.) In contrast a stereotyped black head represents Clymer's opponent James White Geary's platform, "for the Negro." Below the portraits are the words, "Read the platforms. Congress says, The Negro must be allowed to vote, or the states be punished." Above is an explanation: "Every Radical in Congress Voted for Negro Suffrage. Every Radical in the Pennsylvania Senate Voted for Negro Suffrage. Stevens [Pennsylvania Representative Thaddeus Stevens], Forney [John W. Forney, editor of the " Philadelphia Press":], and Cameron [Pennsylvania Republican boss Simon Cameron] are for Negro Suffrage; they are all Candidates for the United States Senate. No Radical Newspaper Opposes Negro Suffrage. "Geary" said in a Speech at Harrisburg, 11th of August, 1866--"There Can Be No Possible Objection to Negro Suffrage." 1 print : woodcut with letterpress on wove paper ; 44.4 x 57.2 cm (image)

Español: "Las dos Plataformas"; De una serie de carteles racistas que atacan los exponentes del republicano radical del derecho al voto del negro, publicados durante la raza gubernativa 1866 de Pennsylvania. (Véase el " La enmienda constitucional, " No. 1866-5.) El cartel caracteriza específicamente la plataforma del candidato Democrata Hiester Clymer como " para el hombre blanco, " representado aquí por la cabeza idealizada de un hombre joven. (Clymer funcionó en una plataforma de la blanca-supremacía.) En cambio una cabeza negra estereotipada representa a la plataforma del oponente de Clymer; James Blanco Geary como " para el Negro." Debajo de los retratos son las palabras, " Lea las plataformas. El congreso dice, el negro debe ser permitido votar, o los estados serán castigados." Arriba está una explicación: " Cada radical en el congreso votó por el derecho al voto del negro. Cada radical en el senado de Pennsylvania votó por derecho al voto del negro. Stevens [representante Thaddeus Stevens], Forney [Juan W. Forney, redactor de Pennsylvania del " Philadelphia Press":], y Cameron [jefe republicano Simón Cameron de Pennsylvania] está para el derecho del voto del negro; son todos los candidatos al senado de los Estados Unidos. Ningún periódico radical se opone al derecho al voto del negro. " Geary" dijo en un discurso en Harrisburg, 11 de agosto de 1866--" No puede haber objeción posible al derecho del voto del negro." 1 impresión: el grabar en madera con prensa de copiar encendido tejió el papel; 44.4 x 57.2 cm (imagen).

Français : Affiche titrée «Les deux programmes», issue d'une série d'affiches racistes attaquant les candidats républicains radicaux souhaitant donner le droit de vote aux noirs américains, et imprimées durant la campagne électorale du gouverneur de Pennsylvanie en 1866. Sur cette affiche le programme du candidat démocrate Hiester Clymer est dite «Pour l'homme blanc», représenté par un jeune homme blanc idéalisé, par opposition de celui du candidat républicain dite «pour le noir», sous le portrait stéréotypé d'un homme noir. Sous les portraits, on peut lire «Lisez les programmes: le congrès dit:"les noirs doivent voter, ou les états seront punis". Au dessus des portraits, on peut lire "Tous les radicaux du congrès ont voté pour le droit de vote aux noirs. [Le représentant de la Pennsylvanie Representative Thaddeus] Stevens, Forney [John W. Forney, editeur du " Philadelphia Press"], et [Le chef du parti Républicain Simon] Cameron sont pour le droit de vote des noirs ; ils sont tous candidats pour le sénat des États-Unis. Aucun journal radical ne s'oppose au droit de vote pour les noirs. "Geary" a dit dans un discours à Harrisburg, le 11 aout 1866, "Il ne peut y avoir aucune objection possible au vote des noirs"».
