Is It Right?

Description

Written by W.G Fortney in San Francisco by the Macdonald Music Co., displays suffragists troubled with the fact that other races could vote, and women could not. The song targets other races in the second verse stating, “Is it right for the Negro, the Jap, and the Chink / The tramp and the old whiskey bloat, to be hauled in a taxicab down to the polls / And there be told how they must vote?”
