Should I Sacrifice To Live 'Half American Suggest Double VV for Double Victory Against Axis Forces end Ugly Prejudices on the Home Front (EDITOR'S NOTE: A young man, eonfu.iarl and befuddled hy all of this donnl talk about democracy and Jt defmnxn of our way of Ufa, is ojifcin, lik othar young Nagrons, soma vary parttnant questions. Wa reprint this latter in full because it is symbolic.) jEDITOR: Like all true Americans, my greatset desire at this time, this crucial point of our history; is a desire for a complete victory over the force of evil, which threaten our existence today. Behind that desire 1 also a desire to serve, this, my country, in the most advantageous way. Most of our leader are suggesting that we sacrifice every other ambition, to the paramount one, victory. With this I agree; but I also wonder if another victory could not be achieved at same time. After all the things that beset the world now are basically the same things which upset the equilibrium of nations internally, states, counties, cities, homes and even the individual. Being an American of dark complexion and some 28 years, these questions flash through my mind: "Should I sacrifice my life to live half American?" "Will things be better for the next gen eration In the peace to follow?" "Would It be da to demand full citizenship Is the kind of ange for the sacrificing of my Ufa? I America I know worth defending? 1 ai America I know worth defending Will America be a true and pure democracy after Thomtjm this war? Will Colored Americans suffer still the Indignities that have been heaped upon them in the psst? other questions need answering; I want to know, and I believe every colored American, who is thinking, wants to know. This mav be the wronsr time to broach such subjects, but hsven't all good thing, obtained by men been, secured through during "lff ton Bar association and just such times of strife. I suggest that while we keep defense and victory In the forefront that we don't lose sight of our fight for true democracy at home. The for victory sign Is being displayed prominently in sll so democratic countries which are fighting for victory over aggre slavery and tyranny. If this sign means that to those now engaged In this great conflict then let we colored Americans adopt the (Clored population ts supporting the tionalities into the war This is parallel with the NACPs statement that the sctivation of a rac ially mixed volunteer would give the lie to Nazi and Japanese propaganda bureaus that the United States talks about. dem ocracy while practicing discrimina tion and segregation, it was said that a special act of congress would be required to permit the enlistment of foreigners In the Army. NXWSFAFFJW SUFFORT IUKA Reoort of the "Liberty Legion" came out last week after the vol unteer division idea had received the support of Frank P. Graham, member of the War Labor Board. and Mark Eth ridge, chairman of tha Committee on Fair Employment Practice, both southerners; Cleveland. Ohio, Call Post. 1 4 a double for a double victory. The rirst. lor victory over our enemies from without, the second for victory over our enemies from within. For surely those who perpetrate these ugly prejudices here are seeking to destroy our democratic form of government just as surely as the Axis forces. This should not and would not lessen our efforts to bring this conflict to a "successful conclusion; but should and would make us stronger to resist these evU forces which threaten us. America could become united as never before and become truly the home of democracy. In way of an answer to the foregoing questions in a preceding paragraph I might say that there Is no doubt that this country Is worth defending; things will be different for the next generation; colored Americans will come Into their own, and America will eventually become the true democracy it was designed to be. These things will become a reality In time; but not through any relaxation of the efforts to secure them. In conclusion let me say that though these questions often permeate my mind, I love America and am willing to die for the America I know will someday become a reality. JAMES G.
