  • Text: of ‘he 35} vo 's of le jut aTY puilt how , the rmal Negroes’ Place Dear Sir: If there was ever a race of people in the history of man that should be thankful that their lot in life was improved by the people of another race it is the American Negro. Some 250 years ago they were savages in the jungles of Africa. There were other civilizations that had prospered on lands that were far less fair to the provis- on of a livelihood for man than the luscious and arable lands of Africa. Yet, while civilization was following its tortuous pace in these countries, the savages *rett fin the Dark Continent were prac- ticing cannibalism. Misguidedly, some of these white people, thought that blacks, living as savages and as cannibals, were animals, and they took them as slaves, Perhaps, that is the best thing that could have happened to them, for otherwise, they, as a race would never have known ne benefits of this great coun- y. My colored friends, while your ancestors were savages and no doubt doing what was right by their customs of the day, eating each other, the forefathers of this country were preparing those great documents of hu- man liberty, the Declaration of). Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill Of Rights, Does that mean anything to you? Cannot you understand that there is a path of history, the history of man’s efforts to find a basis of law whereby one can live in peace with the other? Cannot you understand that the documents mentioned above are the nearest to perfection that have ever been achieved? Do you not understand that to de- stroy these laws is to destroy the very source of those things you say that you want - even those things that you are now oeginning to demand as belong- Ing to you. True, the implementation of the law is not perfect, There are many instances where peo- ple of all colors have been dealt unfairly by the law — also by The Readers’ Forum law. But, what if there were no law? What then? Do you want to revert to savagery? There is law or there is savagery] So now you have set yours selves on a path of violence to take what you have been led to believe by your power-hungry leaders belongs to you. The first question of course is to you? Did you build it? Could you build it? Could you run it? Its just that simple; if you can- not answer yes to all _ three questions then the final quesHon is “How would you live - that is, if you had to depend on your- self?”’ If you had no law, as your Jeaders are now teaching you, do you intend to live in sava- gery? Shall you have cannibal- ism? Maybe that is the way you intend to live, for-as long as the strong last, after you have destroyed everything, as you did in Watts and are doing in Chicago. Rather than face such a dis- heartening outlook, I should think that it would be wise to be thankful for the priviledge that you have to live in this great country - the only country in the world where a man has a free-| no other answer, Either there isj{s still the country of the mo how can you say that it belongs): Once one recognizes that this country, in spite of all its in- equalities by today’s standards, individual freedom and there the best country in which to live then an effort on the part o: that one will be made to pr serve his position in the world, fter all, there is no other place to go. Orangeburg, S. C. The Principles Dear Sir: It is most interesting to read the statement that William M. Garrett, a Democratic candidate for. the office of state treasurer, sent to Governor McNair and ithe press on Friday. Garrett urged the governor to use “‘ev- ery means within your power to allow our Republican opposition to place a nominee on the gen- eral election ballot. Can we, as Democrats, say “the people’ had .an opportunity to choose? I feel every voter should be afforded freedom of choice at the polls.’’ Prior to this statement we have had no Wade Hampton, Ben Tillman, Cole Blease or “Cotton Ed’’ Smith to voice the dom of choice, a wrreans - men who administered the J. 0, Allen] Gq F0lu yee F: sentiment of the people. Anyone will have to admit that it took a great deal of moral courage in this man who mag ‘risk political defeat rather than ‘surrender a shredofprinciple. Mr, Bernard Baruch’s father, . Dr, Simon Baruch, addressing the convention of the S, C. Med- cal Society, of which he was resident, in 1873, quoted an yArabian sage: ‘What good coms es from Ali’s sword, if it be ~ sheathed; What good from Sadi’s 5 tongue, if it be silent.’’ If we do not adhere to theprine * ciples of this man, we can well say; ‘Here lies a decent people s ‘who wanted love, not empire, — and got neither; who tried to \ trade power for popularity and lost both.”’ We might also say that here : lies a nation of advertisers who - ‘knew how to change the cone > sumers taste in cigarettes, but ‘were themselves manipulated on T .all issues that really mattered ito their salvation. | Every voter would do well to read and reread this statement, it is not the statement of a po- .? litician, but of a man of true , principle. , \- G.

  • Text: AFFAIRS OF STATE King Shunting By CHARLES M. HILLS Clarion-Ledger Staff Writer U.S. Sen. James 0. Eastland appearing at the Neshoba Coun- ty Fair here a few days ago, told a large audience that the Negro leader, Martin Luth- er King, “has not gone over in the North and they are shunt- ing him back South.” The statement came on the heels of announcements that King is bringing his annual con- vention of the Southern Chris- tian Leadership Conference to Jackson, Aug, 7 - 8. Sen. Eastland, considered the leading anti - liberal in the Con- gress, cautioned the citizens of this area to pay as little atten- tion to the rabble - rousings of King as possible. It has been noted that every- where that the “non -. violent’ King goes up north, death and destruction have sprouted. Sen, Eastland told the Nesho- ba audience that even liberal solons in Washington “saw through” the shooting incident of James Meredith several ‘weeks ago, and “the result was a break-through for the conserv- ative cause. “The man with the rifle, an expert marksman according to his military record, called three times for attention of Meredith in order that the cameramen could focus,’ Eastland noted, “Ves, aa peut even sa ie through that, when an exp Sones used birdshot to So much for the Hastland statement ... we are attracted to the New. York Times via the St. Louis Post Dispatch this week, “oe GIFTS CUT The Post Dispatch, quoting the New York paper, reprints the following which should show a turn of affairs up The Northern Liberals, fear- ful of extremism, are cutting back sharply on contributions to the more militant civil rights organizations. The big drop in donations from the liberal community is verified by top officers and former leaders of the Congress of Racial Equality, the Stu- dent nonviolent co-ordinating committee, popularly called Snick, and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Southern Christian Leadership Confer- ence. Money from white persons in the past has been the life- blood of their campaigns. a ficers of those organizations and In a series of interviews, eivil rights donors gave three | being shifted from CORE and Gets that contributions fell signifi- cantly after a CORE officer at Mount Vernon, N. Y., denounced Jews in general at a public meeting in February. Lynch says that about 80 per cent of his group’s financial support has come from the white community “and you could say that Jewish contri- hey have been predomi- nant.” RESIGNATIONS Former high - ranking na- tional officers of CORE recent- ly resigned but sill in close touch with the situation, say that contributions to it this year are running only little bet- ter than half of the $810,000 to- tal of the previous fiscal year, Lynch denies such a severe drop but does not disclose the figures, He concedes that the deficit is between $200,000 and $250.000. Former CORE leaders put it as high as $350,000. Ivanhoe Donaldson, new di- rector of the New York office of Snick, which operates primari- ly in the South but has frankly depended on white northern fi- nancial help, says “our contri- butions are 40 to 45 per cent Jess than we normally have at this time of year.” He says that the Student Com- mittee is no longer supported “by those liberal whites who believe in integration in the South but not New York or Chi-|: cago.” Today the organization has the help of the radicals, he says.

North... The Northern Liberals, fear- ful of extremism, are cutting back sharply on contributions to the more militant civil rights organizations. ‘ The big drop in donations from the liberal community is verified by top officers and former leaders of the Congress of Racial Equality, the Stu- dent nonviolent co-ordinating committee, popularly called Snick, and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Southern Christian Leadership Confer- ence. Money from white persons in the past has been the life- blood of their campaigns. In a series of interviews, of- ficers of those organizations and civil rights donors gave three main reasons for the drop in financial support: (1) Concern over CORE and Snick attitudes that are de- scribed by mnay persons as “black racist,” anti-Semitic or . “extreme.” (2) Worry or disgust about bitter attacks, primarily by CORE and Snick, on United States intentions and on ‘‘moral- ity” in Viet Nam and on the military draft. (3) A decline of enthusiasm now that the Northerner is be- ing jostled by civil rights mili- tancy in his own backyard. BLACK POWER Both CORE and the Student Committee have recently em- phasized demands for “black power” in political and eco- nomic life. The Rev. Dr. King demands a ‘“‘militant thrust forward”? by Negroes but de- plores use of the term “black power” as implying black na- tionalist ideas. His organization reports contributions down by more than one third in the fis- cal year ending, June 30. The Rey. Ralph D. Abernathy, vice president and treasurer of the Leadership Conference, says that “black power” de- mands and allegedly racist at- titudes of CORE and Snick have seriously affected the King or- ganization because many whites do not differentiate among the organizations.

There are indications that much money from whites is being shifted from CORE and Snick to more conservative rights groups or to educational and legal defense organizations benefiting the Negro. SLACKENING INTEREST Civil Rights leaders and do- Nors report a general slacken- ing in Northern interest after the enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and last year’s voting rights law. A long - time CORE national executive, who wants his name withheld, sums up that atti- tude: “Bull Connor and his po- lice dogs were such easy tar- gets to hate a few years ago,” He referred to Eugene Con- hor, who used dogs to check demonstrators when he was Birminghan police commission- er Many observers and leaders of the civil rights struggle be- lieve that it is too early. to as- sess the full impact of the new “black power” slogan. But they point to other related factors, described as “racist” or “ex- tremist,” attitudes as having a depressing effect for many months. Kivie Kaplan, the retired white industrialist who is presi- dent of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said recently: “I know one big contributor who tore up his check when Snick started that ‘Black Panter’ political |’ party in Alabama.” He referred to a new all-black party in one Alabama county.

King said these whites “have grown up believing in certain sterebtypes, whether it is the stereotype of the Negroes as lazy, or inherently inferior, or whether it is the myth that Ne- groes depreciate property values when they move into a com- munity.” King appeared yesterday with five other Negroes prominent in civil rights affairs on a special “Meet the Press,, program on NBC radio and television, He took part in the program from a Chicago television stu- dio, leaving before it ended to lead another open-housing march in Chicago. The other panelists were in a Washington studio, ‘Latent Hostllities’ The 'Chicago demonstrations, ing.” “Nonviolence is incompatible with American ideas,” he added. “This is a military-minded na- tion.” Meredith said Negroes ‘‘can- not continue to tolerate this. If| the law doesn’t take these men then we got to stop this.” Later he said, however, that “the Negro has never entertain- ed the idea of taking up arms) against (all) the whites.” The other panelists were Stok- ely Carmichael, chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordi- nating Committee; Roy Wilkins, executive director of the Nation- al Association for the Advance- ment of Colored People; Floyd B. McKissick, director of the Congress of Racial Equality, and Whitney M, Young, Jr., ex- ecutive director of the National Urban League, The six indicated agreement that what-King’called the “trag- ic gulf between promise and ful- the open‘many latent hostilities already existing within certain white groups in the North.” Asked whether perhaps the majority of white people in the nation don’t want a Negro for a neighbor, the rights leader agreed there are some whites against open housing, But he added that “this does not mean that we don't go all out to end housing diserimination.” He said that in the south, _|whites opposed integrating _|lunch counters and motels but that this did not prevent pas- sage of civil rights legislation to bar segregation, “The same thing must happen in housing,” he said, “When the law makes it clear, and is vigorously enforced, we will see that people will not only adjust but... attitudes will also change.” Others on the program includ- ed James H. Meredith, who be- came the first known Negro at the University of Mississippi and was shot from ambush ona voter registration drive in Mis- sissippi last June, Vigilantes Proposed During questioning, Meredith advocated organizing vigilante groups to hunt down untried killers of Negroes.

There has| been some progress for some Negroes, he added, but “the average black man in the ghet- to has not profited within the last 10 years.” Black Power Defined McKissick also defined “black power’ in terms of six ingredi- ents: “One, political power, Two, economic power.
