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).
Français : Affiche titré «Les deux programmes» issu 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"».
Español: "Las dos plataformas" de una serie de carteles racistas que atacan a republicanos radicales a cerca del sufragio de personas negras, emitidas durante la carrera electoral para gobernador de Pennsylvania en 1866. (Ver "La Enmienda Constitucional", no. 1866-5.) El cartel trata de caracterizar la plataforma del candidato demócrata Hiester Clymer como la de "el hombre blanco", representado aquí por la cabeza de un joven de tez blanca. (En su plataforma electoral, Clymer se postuló a favor de la supremacía blanca.) Esta cabeza blanca se muestra en contraste con una cabeza de una persona negra estereotipada representando la plataforma rival de Clymer James White Geary, "para los negros." Debajo de los retratos se leen las palabras: "Lea las plataformas. El congreso dice: A los negros se le deben permitir que voten, o los estados seran castigados." Anteriormente se ofrece una explicación: "Cada Radical en el Congreso votó por sufragio Negro. Cada radical en el Senado de Illinois votó por sufragio Negro. Stevens [Thaddeus Stevens, Representante de Pennsylvania], Forney [John W. Forney, director de la Prensa de Philadelphia] y Cameron [Simon Cameron, Jefe Republicano de Pennsylvania] son ​​para el sufragio negro; todos son candidatos para el Senado de los Estados Unidos. Ningun periódico radical se opone al sufragio negro. "Geary", dijo en un discurso en Harrisburg, 11 de agosto 1866 - "No puede haber una posible objeción a sufragio Negro." Una impresión: grabado en madera con tipografía sobre papel vitela, 44,4 x 57,2 cm (imagen).
Türkçe: 1866 Pensilvanya valilik seçimlerinde kullanılmış ırkçı bir kampaya posteri.
