Today -100: April 3, 1921: Of paprika, registers, German wiles, and well dressed Klansmen

Former Austro-Hungarian emperor Charles still hasn’t left Hungary. He’s spending his time calling Adm. Horthy several times a day and playing at performative Magyarism, like ordering “highly seasoned Magyar national dishes.” The Chamber of Deputies votes unanimously to kick him out of the country.

508 white women employees in the office of the Register of the Treasury petition against the possibility of a negro man being appointed Register, which is one of those few federal posts, like ambassador to Haiti, that sometimes goes to a black man. There have been four black registers in the past, all under Republican presidents, I believe. The women point out that the 900 clerks are mostly white women and veterans and “For a negro to have jurisdiction over those clerks would be intolerable.”

Headline of the Day -100:  

A group of “well dressed white masked men” kidnap a black bellboy from a Dallas hotel, flog him and brand “KKK” on his forehead with acid. He had been found in a (white) (female) guest’s room last week.

The Sunday New York Times Book Review reports on several books exposing the fallacies of anti-Semitism in particular and The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in particular.
