S. Makes News— British Face Own Race Woes By TOM A. CULLEN (Knriipnun Staff Correspondent) LONDON — The British, who had a ringside seat for America's annual summer race riots, thanks to television, are doing a little- soul-searching of their own. Could it happen here? they ask. Gould the colored populations of Britain's industrial cities suddenly erupt in an orgy of hate? The consensus is yes, it could happen here, unless something is done about the racial problem now. By "something" Britons who have studied the problem mean action to stop ghettos from forming and to provide better educational and job opportunities. If nothing is done, violence on an American scale could break out in the Midlands or in London suburbs in another seven or eight years, according to the race relations experts. This having been said, the experts hasten to point out that there are vast differences between Birmingham, England, and Birmingham, Ala. For one thing, Britain's Negro population is small — only 2 per cent of the total population as compared to 11 per cent in the United States. For another, there is no legacy of racial antagonism here such as that engendered by the American Civl War. Most of Britain's colored people are newcomers who have come here from colonies or Commonwealth countries looking for jobs since the war. (The unemployment rate among them, incidentally, is only marginally higher than the national average.) Thirdly, Britain's nonwhites are not united. Jamaicans are suspicious of those who come from Barbados. The man from Trinidad has little in common with his neighbor from the Punjab. The crime rate among these immigrants, however, is no higher and probably lower than among the native whites. Lastly, nobody here — not even the police — carries a gun. During the rioting in American cities, Britons were shocked by the casual gunplay in the streets by both sides. Why does the American government allow firearms to be sold almost indiscriminately? This is the question I have been asked over and over again. A British bobby with whom I discussed the question offers a solution of the firearms menace. "Why doesn't President Johnson call in all the firearms that are being held illegally?" the policeman asks. "He could declare a national moratorium, with no questions asked of persons who turned in their weapons by a certain deadline. That's what we did here in Britain, and it worked wonders. Everything from German Mausers to Thompson submachine guns came pouring in." (A check with the Home Office reveals that over 70,000 firearms were recovered by Scotland Yard during such a moratorium in 1961, while another moratorium in 1965 yielded 40,060 assorted weapons, including 2,761 shotguns and 1,694,767 rounds of ammunition.) Harold Wilson's Labor government has relied heavily on legislation to regulate racial Racial Violence Has Happened ... in England, and can recur, race relations experts warn. The seeds of a Black Power eruption exist in the Midlands and London ghettos where discrimina- tion exists in housing, jobs, insurance and credit facilities. Here, London bobbies collar a Negro leader in riots of a few years ago. relations here. Recently, the government announced its intentions of putting teeth into the 1965 Race Relations Act by extending it to outlaw discrimination in jobs, housing, insurance and credit facilities. Also, "public places" where the color bar is declared illegal may be redefined by law to include hotels, shops and such services as car hire. "It would be a great mistake to think that legislation can do the whole job," says one government official, "but we believe that legislation can help public opinion to develop in the right direction." Britain has its, own Black Power leader in the person of Michael de Freitas, a W e s t Indian who recently told a meeting at Reading that "white monkeys" were "vicious and nasty people." Later he said: "Killing is a strange thing. Before I killed for the first time, I wondered if I would have a conscience. But I slept well. And now I am no longer afraid." To Britons watching the recent battles of American cities on television, such phrases have an ominously familiar sound. Britain may not, after all, have another seven or eight years of grace before such things happen here.
