IN BLACK COMMUNITIES TODAY.

THE REALIZATION IS THAT OVER THE YEARS THE DIVERSE STRATEGIES
OF BOOKER T. WASHINGTON AND DR. W. E. B. DUBOIS AND MARCUS GARVEY AND
MARTIN LUTHER KING AND MALCOLM X HAVE NOT SEPARATELY IMPROVED THE MATERIAL LOT
OF THE MASSES OF BLACK FOLK, BUT THEIR APPARENT FAILURE HAS CONVINCED
MANY BLACK PEOPLE THAT SUCH PROGRESS WILL NEVER OCCUR.

THE SEPERATE AGITATIONS THESE PHILOSOPHIES GAVE BIRTH TO -
EITHER A RETURN TO MOTHER AFRICA, STRUGGLE IN THE COURTS, A NONVIOLENT
THRUST INTO THE STREETS, A VIOLENT ATTEMPT AT DOING REAL INJURY TO
WHITE AMERICA - ALL THESE HAVE ACCUSTOMED MANY WHITE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE
THAT BLACK PEOPLE HAVE BY NOW GOT EVERYTHING WE WANT, AND HALF OF WHAT
WHITE FOLKS HAVE, TOO.

BUT THE PROBLEM SO OFTEN REFFERED TO AS AMERICA'S BLACK PROBLEM -
IN REALITY A MASSIVE WHITE PROBLEM - CONTINUES. IT CONTINUES DESPITE
WARS ON POVERTY AND GREAT SOCIETIES AND MEN FRONTIERS AND WILL CONTINUE
DESPITE THE NEW FEDERALISM
