The author compares the rights given to the “Negro” with the rights given to the Native American Indian. The “Negro” is now made equal with his former master and has all rights of citizenship while the Indian is still pursued and persecuted by the U.S. Government. The Lamanite “is yet to go through ‘to tear in pieces and none shall deliver’ and yet to ‘become a light and delightsome people.’ ”
