A few persons told me, "It's good for white children to'net ntt examples to Negroes." Bui generally, the white par- puts argue, "That bus money should be spent on better tenctv era", or, "Those children have to go bark right aflef school. They can't make any friends hero." An 18-year-old Brooklyn girl recalled, "They transferred one of these Negroes into my class..He always sal by himself, even in the auditorium. He was so lonely." This protest is all the more impressive since it comes oven from mothers and fathers who on other questions declare, "Negroes have waited too long for their rights." In the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, N.Y., the young, wife ot a salesnit-in declared, "Segregationists are sick people." Asked about the school transfer she replied, "I'm againsl shifting our children around like pawns. It's not a question of integraton. I don't want my child sent to school in a slum with drunks all around. I don't care whether these drunks are pink or yellow, black "*o they're segregated all over or white." | again," ,» • , TI i • i UnJTtccts Intensity fcxcept This. .. in ^bther cases the intensity of Again in Orange, N.J. alunch- reflect how , eonette owner said, Ne R racs: £ • of N should get everything they ask for except this one thing." The question of moving white and Negro children b e t w e e n ancc" seems to be building up into the touchiest aspect of the A lawyer's wife pointed out thai in her daughter's school the children nre divided into brighter and slower classes. "The slower clrtss- es are mostly Negrces," she said, whole civil rights agitation in the North. Repeatedly the same protest was voiced: "Our husbands slaved for years so we could get our children out of a bad environment. Now they want to send our kids back to the neighborhoods of filth and suqalor that we worked so hard to get out of." With few exceptions, the white families interviewed during recent weeks in 11 states think racial into tnc schools . high-schoo! teach} ^ ,, We hfwc swtm ; ^ „ Qn h , ock ^^ Children go to our school. This gradual, natural integration. Ve should not bring more Negroes in by bus." The Negroes interviewed divide in the wisdom of these pupil ransfers. In two Philadelphia neighborhoods the split was almost evenly. Some felt Negro parents should be able to send their children to "any school they want to." Others were worried that "teachers in white neighborhoods may not like Negro children. Here the Negro children are liked by theli* trouble "will get worse in the future" rather than die down. Asked how they feel about the Negro demonstrations, roughly four out of 10 say, "Negroes deserve their rights." Another thirc protest, "They're pushing too far." The remaining fourth are torn in conflict. Some of these who sympathize with the Negro cause say, "I nev er thought much about it before but when I saw those dogs in Bir mingham I knew something had tc be done." But others who have been pro- Negro in the past now say, "Tin afraid." A musician's wife in New York City confided, "If I were a Negro I'd feel the way they do. But those demonstrations scar me." In the 'Northern cities the criticism of the demonstrations, run strongest among older people and in Catholic neighborhoods. In rural areas the whole controversy remains remote. Often a farmer would say, "The South is short on Negro rights, but it's not for us to tell the Southerners what to do." 'How Far?' Two of every three white families interviewed think that Congress should pass President John F. Kennedy's civil rights proposals. However, even persons who display no racial hostility are troubled about "how far should the law go'in limiting the rights of private property?" Others maintain, "Laws aren't the answer. You can't legislate morality." Three of the white neighbor- teachers." A Harlem taxicab driver shook his head vigorously as he said, 'I don't like using kids to fight these battles." (© 1963.
