These incidents end ethers Eke -them have led
peop'.e to believe that the nation is. undergoing a
resurgence of racial tension and-strained race
relations. According to the experts and statistics,
there indeed seems to be a rising tide of
apathy and in some cases antipathy concerning
"Race relations today appear to be at a standstill
or in a state of regression," said Paul Crock, an
official at the New York national headquarters of
the National Association for the Advancement of
Colored People. "It certainly does not have the
momentum it had five years ago, and there is
certainly not that genuine outpouring of help that
characterized relations 15 or 20 years ago," he said.
Although symptoms and evidence of the nation's
growing rift between bhek and-white abound,
Crock said there had always been a racial division in
the country. This basic division, which he calls a
"tremendous misunderstanding," .has been
accentuated in times of economic hardship and
conservative swings of attitude. A tendency has
arisen in the country recently for people to turn
inward to their own problems and ignore the '
problems of ethers, Brock said.
"Rifts exist between the races," Brock said. "We
do not listen to each ether in this country. We have
to get back to a farsighted view of civil rights and
what is good for the country. In a better economic
climate, people will become more tolerant."
Bobby Doctor", regional director of the U.S. Civil
Rights Commission, agreed with Brock's

assessment. "Cosed cn the stud:es we've done, it
appears that race relations in the country today are
not good," he said. Doctor said the main prct'.em

perception. Likening race relations to a glaos, he
said blacks perceived the glass as aimost empty, but
whites ' perceived -it as half full. "There is a
perception arnonz blacks' that race relations are
in retrogression," he said. Doctor added that in the
South, despite the progress in race relations in the
past 20 years, there existed a strain between white
One symptom of the spreading tension among
races is a nationwide increase cf violent aggression,
both directed at and generated by minorities, as
seen with the racial strife that rocked Miami, Fla.,
last summer when inner-city blacks rioted in
response to the acquittal of several policemen
charged with beating and killing a black man.
Along with incidents in Atlanta, Buffalo and Fort
Wayne, a black man and white woman were killed
in June by an unknown assailant in Johnstown, Pa.
Two black men were gunned down by a sniper while
jogging while jogging with two white woman in Salt
Lake City in August, and last year cn Nov. 3 in
Greensboro, a band cf Ku Klux. Klansmen and
Nazis allegedly shot into a communist rally, killing
one black and injuring others who were
participating in the rally.
A (militant) form of aggression seems to be

has instituted several paramilitary training camps,

may point to increased aggression toward
minorities. For instance, this year there has been
92 percent increase in reports of police using
excessive force dealing -with minorities and a 55
percent increase in reported I dan activities.
Service spokesman Harvey Erinson warned thai
the statistics could not be interpreted to indicate a
higher incidence cf racially motivated violence
because they also may indicate that blacks slmrly
are more aware of existing problems and are
reporting them. But, he admitted, they also couli
signify increased racial tension. "We are getting
more complaints," he said, "but we haven't done
any research and don't know the reason for it."

Texas (7-2), which defeated Texas Christian 51-25
Saturday, will be the Tar Heels' opponent, giving
UNC bowl games against traditional football
powers for two staight years. In last year's Gator
Dowl, UNC defeated Michigan 17-15.
, "If we couldn't go to one of the four biggies, we
ought to look for a place the players can go and
have some things to do and have a good time,"
Crum said of accepting the bid. "I think Houston
will be a very good place for the players to go." ,
Ron Byrd, representing the Dluebonnet Bowl at
the game, said: "North Carolina has a great
football team. They have a great tradition and great
fans. People from the state support the team."
The acceptance cf the bowl bid almost
overshadowed the consequences of the win in the
Atlantic Coast Conference race. With the victory,
Carolina went to 5-0 in the ACC and 9-1 overall.
The Tar Heels have clinched at least a tie for the
league title and have a chance for the best UNC
record since the 1972 Tar Heels went 11-1.
