Socialism Art Nature
All workers can be organized regardless of race or color, as soon as their minds are cleared of the patriotic notion that there is any reason of being proud of having been born of a certain shade of skin or in an arbitrarily fenced off portion of the earth…. If the American workers need fear any “yellow peril” it is from the yellow [i.e., cowardly] socialists.
1907, Industrial Workers of the World newspaper editorial in response to statement by leading right-wing member of the Socialist Party, Morris Hillquit, who said that the Asian immigrant worker “threatens the native born with dangerous competition and usually provides a pool of unconscious strikebreakers. Chinese and Japanese workers play that role today, as does the yellow race in general.”
