This chapter presents the essay, “Race Absorption,” where Fortune put forth his belief that the race problem would ultimately be solved by the absorption of the black population into the “American race.” According to Fortune this process had already begun. There was no longer a Negroid population; there was only an Afro-American population, he argued.
