50,000 Cut Freedmen's Bureau Party?

"Take our last election, for instance. There is a colored voting population in Georgia of about 65,000. The total number of Republican votes cast was about 25,000, of which about half were pulled by white voters. That shows that at least 50,000 of the Georgia colored citizens have cut loose from the party of freedmen’s bureaus and similar institutions, which were supposed to have been founded in their interests.”
