NEW YORK CITY While vacationing in Texas a few weeks ago, my wife and I spent an evening visiting and talking with some friends in McAllen whose liberal position on the subject of school integration was slightly mitigated by their resentment of what they considered to be the North’s holier than y’all attitude. Having lived in New York the past two years, I had to agree that the city’s official preachings against discrimination Were not necessarily practiced, but it was my wife, a woman of unconsciously brilliant insight, who saw in this Northern hypocrisy what may well be the simplest and most convenient solution to the South’s racial problems. “If Southerners want to keep segregation,” she said, “why don’t they integrate the way the North does? Then people will stop bothering them.” THIS PEARL of wisdom, like the I Gettysburg Address, went largely unnoticed at the time, but it begs elaboration because the Northern racial situation is a source of embarrassment for liberals \(“Besource of resentment for Southerners \(“Clean your own house examined objectively from the unprejudiced viewpoint of a radical moderate. New York City is ruled by a strong coalition of minority groups \(the smallest and most frustrated of which are the white protesinate against one another if given the opportunity, but since none wields enough power independently they all figure the second best policy is to outlaw the practice. Safer that way and turns out the vote besides. Then, with the books filled with anti-discrimination legislation and everybody happy, it becomes a simple matter of practicing segregation by circumventiona technique which has been raised to the level of an art in Manhattan. \(New York City elections are won by pleasing minority groups, and in the last one the desperate Republicans came up with a slate that sounded like a vaudeville stage joke. “One day Lefkowitz, Fino and Gilhooley were walking DISCRIMINATION is prosecuted vigorously when discovered and proved, but the law seems to be observed in about the same degree and spirit as Prohibition. Most housing, especially segregated housing, is handled through real estate agencies which require that applicants appear in person. Race or ethnic background is then noted on the application card by such subtle and simple devices as typing the date one way to indicate Jew, another way to indicate Negro, and so on. Same for employment agencies who screen job applicants. Schools can, when necessary, segregate on reading ability, and the better restaurants have head waiters skilled in the art of discouraging people named Gonzalez. \(Or Helmer, A system like this works smoothly and effectively because it can accommodate exceptions when necessaryand with a smile. But it also makes for problems and confusion \(“Is he a Nigerian diplomat or just plain South where the issue is more clear-cut–black and white, so to speak. One can never be absolutely certain that a given Negro isn’t a treacherous spy for some trouble-making committee, nor is it safe to be an outspoken segregationist with so many wops, kikes, chinks, micks, etc., running around loose, buying your goods, voting, and so on. Nov if this situation creates problems for the native New Yorker who’s only trying to mind his own business and keep down the riff-raff, it creates even greater ones for a Texan, especially a liberal Texan, who moves to New York and just wants to be friends. Northerners automatically assume that Texans are Southerners and they know that Southerners are segregationists. Confusion results. If one attends, say, a cocktail party where there is a gathering of liberals, and if he is introduced as being from Texas, the poor wretches don’t quite know what to say. No one \(unless he’s lookwants to bring up social, political, or civil rights topics. The conversation tends to revolve around the weather and last night’s TV programs while everyone secretly marvels that this otherwise harmless-looking fellow would be the sort to don a sheet and indulge in torch-light lynching pa rties. NOR IS IT much better if one subtly reveals himself as an integrationist, unless he enjoys playing the role of a glamorous undercover agent just back from an exciting mission deep into enemy territory. Most New York Liberals \(upper-case variety who out of New York, and are anxious to hear first-hand accounts of how badly the “colored people” Sirs: In your issue of March 30th you give the following quote: “This country was built by men who worked hard and long for one purposeto make things better for their families. It was built on the principle that man will extend maximum energy and initiative cnly to protect and better the condition of his loved ones and himself.” I consider this statement to be an insult to the American people, a repudiation of the American vision, utterly false and tragic. The United States was made great by dedicated citizens who worked hard and long to extend and expand the horizons of democracy, to provide a better life for those handicapped through no fault of their own. It has been made great by courageous men in public office, by social workers, by suffer Down South and hear one’s experiences among the small, embattled groups of integrationists who live in catacombs beneath Dallas and Houston. If questioned too naively, I try to come off with something like, “Oh, we’ve got some of the classrooms integrated, but it’s hard to get the niggers into dorms.” Really gets ’em. Remember that native New Yorkers are a little awed when they meet a real live Texan. Some actually think we ride horses and carry a Colt .44, though not in town, of course. Every Texan is supposed to have oil interests and talk like Lyndon Johnson. Not all New Yorkers are dedicated liberals, however. Many are good old-fashioned racists who don’t like integration one bit but are trying to makes the best of it, and these people are even more of a problem for Texans. The thing is, non-discrimination is the law of the land, the vow of every office-seeker, and the dearest issue of every minority group. Hence, although it’s practiced rather widely, discrimination doesn’t enjoy the almost universal approval and respectability that it does in parts of the South, and even the most confirmed bigot tends to keep it to himself. This is understandably frustrating and so when he meets up with a Texan \(who he automatically assumes is a Southern Segregationhis own soul of all its little pentup troubles.

Hauck, adult education pioneer in California, who after a day of teaching gave his services at night without a single cent of pay to building the adult education program in his community, a program which taught immigrants and helped to offer opportunities to those denied an education. It is the Dr. Haucks and thousands like him down the years who have done more for our country than those who, after feathering their own comfortable little nests, fritter their time away on the well-watered golf links of snobbish country clubs, those who are spiritually so impoverished that they consider “do-gooder” a term of ridicule.

My good dentist, upon learning I was from Texas, filled my mouth with cruel instruments and launched into a lengthy monologue explaining how he could sympathize with my plighthaving integration crammed down my throat, as he phrased it. He went on to describe how bad conditions were getting in New York what with race-mixing in schools, Negroes and Puerto Ricans taking over, and so on, while I made noncommittal gargling sounds.
