More Racial prejudice in Phoenix • * JL. Contained from Page 34 the present situation lies in changing vs. It doesn't. They should study themselves. Instead of worrying about the Black Panthers, they should concern themselves with their own racists. White racism has caused much more damage than black racism. Q. Are all white men guilty and therefore obligated to work for change? A. A lot of white people say they didn't have anything to do with the exploitation of the black people in America. They claim they can't do anything about it. But my answer is that there is no doubt that white people today have benefited from the exploitation of the black man while people like me have suffered because of it. A. When I go into a store I look at white people and hate myself for ever thinking that I was inferior to them. But there was a time when I believed the inferiority myth. It was reinforced by merchants who insisted that I enter through the back door. Prejudice was sinister here, I can tell you that. At least in the South a black man knew he wasn't allowed in certain places. Here some people said one thing and did another. Talk about violence. No one will ever know the degree of violence which swelled within me when I was rejected. I don't know how much I can do to help my people, but I guarantee that I'll go to hell and burn before allowing my children to be subjected to the kind of suffering I endured. Q. Since you live in a mixed neighborhood do you worry about backlash? A. Backlash! I'm too busy fighting the front - lash to be worried about that. Black people are at the point now where they will be whole men or none. When I listen to old blacks, I get frightened about the amount of work that has to be done to make my people realize that they are truly equal. But only we can help ourselves now. To be led by whites would be like having put an Englishman at the head of the American Revolution. Blacks wouldn't stand for it. They'd keep remembering how, within a week after the Kent State shootings, hundreds of thousands of students protested, closing down 478 colleges and universities; and how, shortly after the Jackson, Miss., shootings, only three universities shut down. Q. Do you think that when blacks gain power and equality, they will practice prejudice? A. How could they? After 350 years of enslavement and persecution, how could they willingly inflict suffering on other human beings? The elevation of the black people can only strengthen this country and contribute to the well-bejng of its citizens. A country -'of justice and equality is. not vulnerable to revolution. Those -who fear Communism should be working as hard as I am for all minority groups. louc * . • keeping your mouth shut when she makes a terrible mistake.
