Black Lawyers Urge Blacks To Withdraw Monies From NCNB Recently, Irving Joyner, Presi dent of the North Carolina Associ ation of Black Lawyers, called for a statewide campaign to urge blacks to withdraw their monies from NCNB to protest the bank’s financial support of the racist government of South Africa, as well as “the racial insensitivity articulated by Hugh McColl, Chairman of NCNB.” At about the same time, North Carolina National Bank issued a statement modifying its position with regard to loans to the South African government and its agencies. Whether this modification will have any effect on the NCABL’s campaign remains to be seen, although one source in Charlotte had his doubts. In the interest of fairness, we are printing both statements as pre sented by Irving Joyner and Rusty Page, Senior Vice President and Director of Corporate Communica tions, NCNB. FROM NCABL STATEMENT: Joyner expressed his dismay at McColl’s statements (concerning his "love” for the South African gov ecaraeot> and NCNJB's .«i£u*u*tive . efforts to aid South Africa. "I don't feel that blacks and other people of good will should or would support the use of their monies to support racist policies. People who are concerned about this situation should close out their accounts at NCNB and then urge everyone that they are in contact with to follow this example,” said Joyner “McColl is the spokesperson for NCNB and his remarks are obvious ly intended to convey the corporate position and policy of that institu tion. Blacks should not allow their resources to be used to support racism in South Africa or to endorse racial bias and prejudice in the United States,” continued Joyner. Joyner has been in contact with over too black leaders to solicit their support in this deinvestment cam paign. "It is time that black people in North Carolina take a stand against this blatant support of racism," said Joyner. NCNB STATEMENT: NCNB con tinues to believe that financing trade and economic growth of businesses in South Africa is in the best interest of all South Africans. We do not condone or support in any way the policies of apartheid, and we do not view our doing business in South I Africa as direct or indirect support of the government or its apartheid policies. The issue is complex and subject to intense feelings, however, and we are concerned that it not become a divisive force within our communi ties. We have therefore adopted a policy that precludes further loans to the South African government or its agencies.

These chruches as well as many others that have been supportive through the years make sure that members of their congrega tion are represented." Mrs. Hargrave commented. This event is more than a fun draiser. It is an orientation on awareness of issues LDF and Blacks are facing. "We see this event as a means of educating the masses — and where do we get a good cross section of all our citizens? In the churches, of course,' Mrs. Hargrave continued. Mrs. Hargrave sees this as a political and educational challenge as well as a chance for folks to come out and find out what The I-egal Defense Fund is all about.
