Hubert Harrison, "the crucial test of socialism's sincerity" and W. E. B. Du Bois, "the great test of the American socialists"

“ . . . the mission of the Socialist Party is to free the working class from exploitation, and . . . the duty of the party to champion . . .[the "Negro’s"] cause is as clear as day. This is the crucial test of Socialism’s sincerity.”

"The Negro problem, then, is the great test of the American socialists.”
