The only thing that keeps me from pitching headlong into the thing is the presence of numerous Jim Crow* laws on the statute books of the nation. I am crazy about the idea of this Democracy. I want to see how it feels. Therefore, I am all for the repeal of every Jim Crow law in the nation here and now. Not in another generation of so. The Hurstons have already been waiting eighty years for that. I want it here and now.
