Daniel E. Day Mentioned in Time Magazine - 1945



Daniel Edgar Day's Letter to The Editor was published in Time Magazine 1945. Cynthia Day informed me that Daniel was a writer for the Military as well.



/////////////////////////

Slur?

Sirs:

Permit me to 1) express my gratification for your piece on Mary McLeod Bethune (TIME, July 22) and 2) slip TIME a detonating A-bomb for using the term "Negress" which made my brown face take on a reddish hue. The original article

Negroes don't like "Negress" any more than Jews like "Jewess" and consider it a slur. . . .

DANIEL E. DAY

Major, Field Artillery

Washington
///////////////////////////////////

Interesting to note that famous black freethinker, George Schuyler pointed out in the same series of Letters that if blacks accept Negro, why not Negress? :)
