tend to forget that they are black."
CHRONICLE-Where does the racism stem from?
What is its main source?
HAIRSTON-44Well, you have to look at how the
American system is made up. Only a few people have all
the power and wealth and what they do is form a group
of people they call middle class or middle income
Americans. Then, you have a large body of Americans,
the Hispanics, Puerto Ricans and whatever. They confront
us with all the problems that beseige us in America
such as racism, communism, socialism, the Ku Klux Klan
and the Communist Workers Party (CWP) and all these
kinds of people, and they threw us all in a big melting pot
and they keep us fighting each other so that we won't
look at the people who are getting all the money, all the
power and all the wealth from our labor." 44lf white people
in America would follow the leads of black people
and look at this for what it really is, and that is that we
are making all the money and we're getting less. An
employer says well I'm paying you a certain amount of
dollars per week to work for me. What that means is that
we're making him three times more than he's paying us.
Anytime the margin falls below that, then you're fired.
So, that tends to create racism. Black people are in a position
where we don't hire anybody, we don't own
anything really but as soon as there is a recession such as
there is now, then real poor white people are told that if it
was not for black people, they would have a job and that
keeps fostering racism. And, then, when you see so manv
things happening like police brutality, it's always geared
toward black people. We are the last hired and the first
fired. Stores have special watches out for black people
shoplifting and just anything bad tends to be black. I
mean, that's the mood of the system...black Monday, a
black cat crosses your path, you've got to turn around
because it's bad luck and all these kinds of things foster
CHRONICLE-Do you think that racism is resurging?
There has been a lot of publicity lately about how the
Klan is resurging and building and getting bigger and bigger.
HAIRSTON-"As 1 said before, any time that there is a
recession and high inflationary times, racism seems to
come up more. But, there is the mere fact that black people
haven't made any progress in this country; any
substantial progress. You see, we sit around and &et carried
away because we can eat in restaurants with white
people, go to school^ith white people, and ean even
walk the street with white women and not be physically
molested, but that does not mean that you've made a lot
. of gains because they're only temporary and that's what's
happening right* now."
"The gains that we were supposed to have made in the
60s are quickly eroding away now. We are losing them a
lot faster than we gained them. Substantial gains in
America, if the system had ever worked for us, would
mean blacks owning factories, you would see blacks in
every walk of life, because we are intelligent enough to do
all these things. But, when you have so many obstacles to
go up against, then that means that racism is here, it
always has been."
"The largest country in the world ifc supposed to be for
justice and equality doesn't have one black in the Senate
because white people refuse to vote for black people and
that's racism." _
"The Forsyth County Commissioners don't have any
blacks because white people refuse to vote for black people
and you see this throughout. There are no black
senior high school principals here and you know it's the
black, get back."
"Now, I don't think that black people ought to use
blackness as a crutch. It ought to only tell us that we have
just ourselves and we need to come together as a people
and do as the Jewish people have done, do as the Cubans
have done in Miami. We can have businesses that import
and export. Nigeria is the fourth largest oil producing nation
in the world. We could do business with Nigeria,
everybody needs fuel oil; why couldn't we use their
business. They're a black nation. But, the main thing,
and it s hard and a lot of black people take issue with it,
but sometimes we can be our greatest enemy."
CHRONICLE-I was going to*ask you how blacks treat
HAIRSTON-'We treat blacks worse than anything
and I try and understand this because we've been played
against each other so much. You have to look at the
system itself. We have been subjected to the most intense
brainwashing of any other ethnic group in the world."
"We've been programmed that everything white is
good. We don't have control of our children because we
leave their education to our oppressors. If you remember
during" the Korean War, there were some white
Americans soldiers who were captured and held prisoner
for 12 months and they were subjected to brainwashing.
In 12 short months, they denounced America. So now you
see, if they denounced America after 12 months of brainwashing,
then you know good and well we're goipg to denounce
each other after 300 years after telling us that being
black is something to be ashamed of. Instead of telling
us that we ought to be proud to be black. We ought to
be proud to be black. When you treat people like
animals, they tend to act like animals. Not only black
people, but white people. If white people were subjected
to the same treatment that we are, they'd be jumping out
of windows, committing suicide. They couldn't take it."
CHRONICLE-How severely will the results of last
November's election affect blacks in Winston-Salem?
HAIRSTON-"I don't think that the election is going
to hurt us anymore than with President Carter. We were
suffering under Carter. Inflation hurts all of us.
