N.Y. Republicans Hit Race Persecution

The New York State convention of the Republican Party, which closes last night, included the following as a plank of its platform:

“We again declare our insistence on the just and equal protection of all American citizens, regardless of religion, race, color or nativity. Freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom of press, guaranteed by the American Constitution, should be enjoyed by people everywhere, and we protest against discrimination and persecution on account of race or religion wherever and however it may be perpetrated.”
