“black power” as a civil rights
weapon, and called upon all
Americans to seek redress for

The 5 1/2 million member
organization, largest Negro

“In civil order..civil disob

therefore is not a virtue,” the

been used as a means of cor

order, but to overthrow that
order.”
The resolution criticised

Guest Editorial
BY GORDON B. HANCOCK
The violent Negro’s appeal to fire is
one of the ugliest and most dangerous
symptoms of the current interracial dis
orders. The arson-minded Negro must
be crushed and curbed in the interest
of the national safety and Negro sur
vival It is high time for leaders of the
race to rise up against arson-minded Ne
groes and condemrl them in no uncer
tain terms. Arson is a threat to every
body, friends as well as enemies, whites
as well as Negroes, the “haves” as well
as the “havenots.” Arsonists have no
friends anywhere: and if there is a cer
tain means of driving away every last
friend of the Negro everywhere, arson is
that means. If there is a sure way to
consolidate the white race against the
Negro race, arson is that way. Arson is
dangerous and so is the arsonist and the
sooner arsonism as an ideology is stamp
ed out among rioting Negroes, the better
for Negroes and everybody. The Negro
who thinks that by applying the torch
the twenty million Negroes can bring
nearly 200,000,000 whites to their knees
is a fool! And the Negro leaders who in
culcate such notion in the unthinking
Negro masses are knaves, and as such
should be denounced; for they are in
viting social and economic damnation
upon the heads of the Negro millions.
There is an overt anti-Negro element
among whites who are abetted by mil
lions of covert anti-Negro elements who
are seeking and searching for an excuse
to destroy the Negro for his very at
tempt to pull into the mainstream of
American citizenship. We have made
startling advances since 1954 and the
sentiment of the world has been going
for us, but it is quite conceivable that
the Negro arsonist can turn the stream
of world sentiment against us in our just
struggle for full citizenship. The Negro
arsonist must be crushed or by his sense
less appeal to fire he will crush the as
pirations of a struggling people. The
Negro leaders who are inclined to go
slow on the denunciation of the arson
minded Negro may live to regret it. The
violence that has been injected into a
non-violent adventure is unfortunate

REELECTED
DALLAS - (NPI) -The Rev.
J, H, Jackson, pastor of Chi
cago’s Olivet Baptist church,
last week was re-elected to an
other term as president of the
National Baptist Convention,
U. S. A., Inc., at the denomina
tion’s 86th annual session.
Since he was first elected
many years ago, Rev. Jackson
has qutematlcally been returned
to office each year. The denom
ination claims over five mil
lion members.
The convention's theme was
"United We Stand,” to empha
size what Rev, Jackson claims
should be the condition among
all Americans, Negroes and
whites. However, the minister's
philosophy against demonstra
tions and militancy In civil
fights places him at odds with
(See RE-ELECTED, P. 2)
enough, but for this violence to take the
form of arson is a form of racial suicide.
There are many anti-Negro organiza
tions in this country founded by the an
ti-Negro whites, covert and overt. It
hardly takes a prophet to see what is
possible when these organizations con
solidate and integrate. There is no surer
means of hastening this consolidation
and integration of the anti-Negro ele
ments than the arsonist so evident in the
current interracial disurbances. There
can be but little doubt that someone in
the role of leadership is putting arson
in the minds of these crude arsonists
who appear too invariably in the riot
zones'. The leader or would-be-leader
planting the arson suggestion is doing a
damnable thing. It is high time that our
pulpit and press cry out with a loud
voice against the would-be Negro arson
ist. People with homes and possessions
are against arson and only the shiftless
and irresponsible would resort to such
specious means of trying to outsmart the
white man. It cannot be done and the
sooner the word is passed along that it
cannot be done the sooner will our ar
son-minded Negroes be checked. Arson
is dangerous for everybody everywhere
and all the time! Arson-mindedness
must be stamped out and the sooner the
better! The toe-hold that Virginia gave
the Nazis a few years ago has become a
foot-hold already; and already the Nazis
though weak in numbers to date, are
crying for Negro extermination; and
nothing could give their anti-Negro bat
tle-cry force and power more effectively
than the arson-minded Negro. Quite as
alarming as the adventure into arsonism
and the appeal to fire is the silence of
the Negro leaders on the horrible impli
cations of arson. What the young Negro
would-be arsonist is doing is explained
by his leaderlessness. And although des
perate now in his plight, he needs leaders
who are courageous enough to disabuse
his mind of the futility of an appeal to
fire and flame. In a fight with fire, the
odds are against the Negro and over
whelmingly with the dominant white
man. The arson-minded Negro is dan
gerous!
