NUMBER: 1600
AUTHOR: Frederick Douglass (c. 1817–95)
QUOTATION: I knew that however bad the Republican party was, the Democratic party was much worse. The elements of which the Republican party was composed gave better ground for the ultimate hope of the success of the colored man’s cause than those of the Democratic party.
