In speaking about trade with Puerto Rico, White, an African American congressman from North Carolina, protests the treatment of American blacks who have been murdered, disenfranchised, and deprived of their constitutional rights in the South, without any action by government. White introduces a bill to enable the federal government to enforce civil rights rather than to leave enforcement to individual states. A second speech contains a discussion about lynchings and a North Carolina newspaper editorial attacking White as unfit to represent whites of North Carolina.
