A Quote by Samuel Eliot Morison on america, bitterness, colors, problems, slavery, solution, and yielding

The freedmen were not really free in 1865, nor are most of their descendants really f ree in 1965. Slavery was but one aspect of a race and color problem that is still far from solution here, or anywhere. In America particularly, the grapes of wrath have not yet yielded all their bitter vintage.
