 Notes
Abstract: Description from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Froudacity): Froudacity: West Indian Fables by James Anthony Froude is a 1889 polemic written by John Jacob Thomas as a rebuttal to James Anthony Froude's 1888 book The English in the West Indies. Froude's travelogue attacked the British West Indian colonies for wanting to establish self-government, arguing that if the majority black population were allowed to vote on leaders they would choose leaders that would repress the white population. Like many of his West Indian contemporaries, Thomas was outraged at the inaccuracies of Froude's text as well as the racist arguments that Froude uses as justification for his beliefs. He decided that writing a refutation to Froude was his patriotic duty1 and that it would act as self-vindication2 for West Indian blacks. Froudacity was Thomas' last and most significant work. Thomas finished writing it shortly before succumbing to pneumonia.
Statement of Responsibility: explained by J.J. Thomas.

FROUDACITY.







PREFA CE.


I also realized the fact that the " Bow of
Ulysses" was not likely to have the same
ephemeral existence and effect as the newspaper
and other periodical discussions of its contents,
which had poured from the press in Great
Britain, the United States, and very notably, of
course, in all the English Colonies of the
Western Hemisphere. In the West Indian
papers the best writers of our race had written
masterly refutations, but it was clear how
difficult the task would be in future to procure
and refer to them whenever occasion should
require. Such productions, however, fully satis-
fied those qualified men of our people, because
they were legitimately convinced (even as I
myself am convinced) that the political destinies
of the people of colour could not run one tittle of
risk from anything that it pleased Mr. Froude
to write or say on the subject. But, meditating
further on the question, the reflection forced it-
