  • Text: frm Chen Ge Oey Mens John S. Knight The Atlanta Riot Unmasked SN CC | \ JOHN S. KNIGHT The recent riots in Atlanta offer convincing evidence that most, if-not all, of the racial violence in our large cities has been organized and led by a small minority bent upon the destruction of our society. My authority for this state- ment is Ralph McGill, pub- lisher of the Atlanta Constitu- tion, long a moving and mili- tant force for equal treatment of the Negro citizen as pro- vided by law and the Con- stitution of the United States. McGill places responsibility for the Atlanta disturbances squarely upon the Student Non- Violent Coordinating Commit- tee (SNCC, or SNICK) and its leader, Stokely Carmichael. SNICK, according to McGill, has no more than 300 mem- ‘bers. These have been the agents of anarchy in Watts, New York, Chicago and other major cities. : SNICK’S beginnings were more auspicious. Its early stu- dent leaders were motivated by high dedication to the civil rights cause. Now the John Lewises and other responsibles are out. Control of SNICK is held by the extreme radicals, of whom Carmichael is the dominating figure. As McGill says, SNICK is no longer a civil rights organi- zation but an anarchistic group which is openly and officially committed to the destruction of existing institutions. Though small in member- ship, SNICK appeals to all hat- ers of the white man. Its slo- gans of defiance intrigue the very young, as was shown in Atlanta, where the mob was largely composed of youngsters in the 12- to 18-age range. THERE .APPEARS to be no question but that SNICK’S funds are supplied from abroad. One of its lawyers is a registered Castro agent. Its agitators’ shout Havana slogans to the effect that we must live through violence. “Black Power” is but the rallying cry. Fortunately for Atlanta, it | has a mayor who confronted the mob with rare courage. | Though physically manhandled and taunted with shouts of “white devil,” Mayor Ivan Allen Jr., remained upon the scene until the crowd had been dispersed. Mayor Allen gave short shrift to charges of police bru- tality. “I saw plenty of brutal- ity,” he said, “but it was all directed against police offi- cers.” At his press conference, | Mayor Allen stated that “if _ Stokely Carmichael is looking for a battleground, he has cre- ated one, and he will he met in » Atlanta whatever situation he chaoses.” Aflanta’s leaders weré auc 1 to dey the rioting a vi Summit eatene = : Conference, a Negro organiza- tion, denounced both SNICK ~ and Carmichael, while calling for constructive measures de- signed to alleviate problems ~ Negro.

UNTIL THIS week, the City of At- 4 lanta had maintained a glowing repu- | tation as one of the hardest-working communities in the building of inter- _ racial harmony and progress. Through ' the efforts and cooperation of whites : and Negroes, it established itself as a | model of peaceful integration, a model studied by other Southern communi- | ties trying to solve their own racial problems. _ Then Stokely Carmichael came to town with his inflammatory sales pitch for “black power” and his rant- ings against “the white devils.’ And _ on Tuesday night, Carmichael’s loud- _ speaker campaign came’ to fruition _ with the rioting of a mob. This mob , attacked the mayor, who tried to rea- _ son with its members, It attacked the policemen who tried to restore order. ' But it did more—it attacked the con- _ ‘cept Atlanta has represented, the con- _ épt that real compromise and cooper- ation can achieve a spirit in which all + races can work together to build a | Better city. | © THIS WAS perhaps the greatest : damage that the mob did. Now other _ city fathers may be tempted to shrug | their shoulders and say: “What’s the ; use? Atlanta has done as much as any } 4‘ i iF | ’ i ; city in the South to make cooperative integration work, and look what hap- ; pened.” Dallas citizens in particular may A discouraged by Atlanta’s experi- ence, for the two cities are very much : alike in their populations, in their economies and in their attempts to build through interracial cooperation. .. But before we decide to abandon the path that Dallas and Atlanta have of Atlanta tried to follow, it would serve us well to look deeper into the events of the current week. There is more to the story than the headlined activities of Carmichael’s SNCC barnstormers or of the hundreds of young rioters. We should note that there were Negro as well as white leaders who tried, at the risk of their safety, to quell the violence. There were Negro as well as white policemen who skill- fully restored order before the riot turned into a bloodbath. And, perhaps most important, the Negro Atlantans, local civil-rights leaders and ministers, were the ones who organized a door-to-door cam- paign the following day to counter Carmichael’s efforts to turn the city into a battleground. — IN SHORT, in Atlanta, there is a durable fabric of society, a fabric that has been woven of both white and black threads through the years of co- operation. The efforts of these years have not been as dramatic or as well- publicized as the riot, but in the final analysis they should prove to be more lasting in their results. These results of the work of men of good will will not be destroyed overnight by men of Carmichael’s stripe. Rational Atlantans of both races cannot stand by and see their community torn asunder, because those of both races know that they have a stake in its future. The Rev. Samuel Williams, presi- dent of the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP, summed it up most succinct- ly when he declared: “Atlanta is not by far a perfect city but it is too great to be destroyed by simpleminded bigotry.”

THER | SPRINGFIELD UNION EDITORIAL PAGE 3 ' SEPTEMBER 14, 1966 _The Uses: of Black Power . | Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the civil-rights movement's chief apostle of nonviolence, was busy in Atlanta this week seeking a way to calm a situation that has broken into riots several times in recent days. Dr. King’s considerable talents could be put to much better use elsewhere. Atlanta already has an enviable record of progress with civil rights, not only among southern cities but in the na- tion as a whole. Yet it is now the scene of an ugly struggle for control, pitting Dr. King and his moderate Southern Christian Leadership follow- ers against a more radical civil-rights wing led by Stokely Carmichael and the so-called Student Nonviolent Co- ordinating Committee: The Carmichael group, with its cry of “black power,” is giving that vague term its worst possible meaning. Fan- ning emotions to the point of destroy- ing property and injuring people is a far cry from the ballot-box power and the marketplace power the American Negro can use legitimately to help himself. Yet destruction is the turn the “black power” movement took in Atlanta with Mr. Carmichael’s en- couragement. And the damage goes far beyond a few broken windows. A critical vote takes place in the U.S. Senate today on ending a filibus- ter against a civil-rights bill that in- cludes the fair-housing provision sought fervently by Negro leaders. The bill’s chances, never really strong, are clearly diminished by Atlanta’s tragic news. News of racial violence elsewhere is doing other harm, too. Civil-rights groups report a drop-off in contribu- tions to finance their constructive work. Political candidates in several areas—not just the South—have been reaching for the ‘white backlash,” hop- ing to ride it into office with an im-. plied pledge to do less, not more, for Negroes. And as William S. White reported on this page the other day, fears of gangster ties with some of the rights groups is causing further dis- enchantment. The setback being handed the civil- rights movement is so obvious that one wonders if the lure of publicity, the thrill of the limelight, and the heat of the fray aren’t more important to this radical fringe than Negro ad- vancement. Dr. King and other vet- eran leaders, Negro and white, have a good deal more to show for their less fiery efforts. The progress of many Negroes, of course, increases the frus- tration of those who have been by- passed so far. But the rights move- ment will pick up momentum again when Negroes by and large repudiate the wild-eyed revolutionaries and sup- port—with sensible, reasoned “black power,’—those leaders who can use power effectively on their behalf. i a OS ee eee tl ee

The balloting is not a test between the Vietcong and the non-communist nationalists, for the Vietcong have been ex- cluded, as far as possible, from the candidate and voter lists. 2. Charles Mohr, correspond- ent for the New York Times, Yeports that in two weeks of campaigning, the candidates have not discussed the war, how to win it or how to nego- tiate its end. 3. While there are no prohibi- tions), against debating govern= ment war policy, the candidates ‘are wary of standing laws that could punish those who “ham- per” the war effort. In Saigon’s election district 3, some 200 persons heard speakers from 11 slates of candidates. ‘Not one,”’ according to corre- spondent Mohr, ‘‘mentioned the war, inflation, the American im- pact on Saigon or how soon the ruling junta should step down.” The wariness of issues was rationalized by one candidate who said: “We must have a con- stitution as a legal base for our government. With a legal base, we can solve all problems,” So. when you read the opti- mistic post-election pronounce- ments to the effect that democ- racy is thriving in South Viet- nam, leave a little room in your ‘mind for some wholesome skep-. ticism. The old French saying — the more things change, the more they remain the same — has spe- cific application to Vietnam. JOHN S. KNIGHT vi cleat lll
