"From the earliest times, among all peoples, there is to be found the notion that guilt and suffering can be transferred to some other being or person. To the primitive mind this transferring of blame and sorrow seems reasonable enough, for the primitive mind commonly confuses the physical with the mental. For example, if a load of wood can be lifted from one man's back to another's, why not a load of guilt or sorrow? The primitive thinker concludes that the shift is not only possible but entirely natural."

The articles were written for the Militant, weekly socialist newspaper. The three by George Breitman, written from Detroit, appeard during July and August 1965. The nine articles by Herman Porter, who reported the trial in New York for the Militant, appeared in its issues from January to March 1966." Malcolm X was effectively orphaned early in life. His father was killed when he was six and his mother was placed in a mental hospital when he was thirteen, after which he lived in a series of foster homes. In 1946, at age twenty, he went to prison for larceny and breaking and entering. While in prison, he became a member of the Nation of Islam, and after his parole in 1952, quickly rose to become one of the organization's most influential leaders. He served as the public face of the controversial group for a dozen years. In his autobiography, Malcolm X wrote proudly of some of the social achievements the Nation made while he was a member, particularly its free drug rehabilitation program. The Nation promoted black supremacy, advocated the separation of black and white Americans, and rejected the civil rights movement for its emphasis on integration."

"Ramparts was a glossy illustrated American political and literary magazine, published from 1962 to 1975 and closely associated with the New Left political movement. Unlike most of the radical magazines of the day, Ramparts was expensively produced and graphically sophisticated. Ramparts was established in June 1962 by Edward M. Keating in Menlo Park, California, as a "showcase for the creative writer and as a forum for the mature American Catholic." The magazine declared its intent to publish "fiction, poetry, art, criticism and essays of distinction, reflecting those positive principles of the Hellenic-Christian tradition which have shaped and sustained our civilization for the past two thousand years, and which are needed still to guide us in an age grown increasingly secular, bewildered, and afraid."

16 Eleazer, R. B. Understanding our Neighbors A Factual Study of America's Major Race Problem

The thin cardstock covers have some ground-in dirt and fingermarks. The text pages are mostly clean and bright. This item is some type of school pamphlet which was put together to be used in the American South. It contains a strange amalgam of facts and supposition regarding the history of "negros" both in history (in Africa and the Carribbean) and in the US. There are snippets of information about the achievements of African Americans (including Phillis Wheatley, W. E. B. Dubois, Countee Cullen, and many more. A further section discusses civic problems , law, politics, etc. All of the areas covered include dated and rather patronizing views regarding the subject. "It is hard for people to get along together when they are members of the same family. Those of different families find it a greater problem and when another nationality or race is involved it is more difficult still. This, it seems, is due to the fact that people do not so readily understand those who are different from them, that they tend to be suspicious or fearful of those whom they do not understand, and finally that they foolishly assume that those who differ from them must necessarily be inferior."

"After being replaced by Ruby Doris Smith-Robinson as executive secretary, Forman remained close to the leadership of SNCC helping to negotiate the ill-fated "merger" of SNCC and the Black Panther Party in 1967 and even briefly taking a leadership position within the Panthers. In 1969, after the failure of the merger and the decline of SNCC as an effective political organization, Forman began associating with other Black political radical groups. In Detroit he participated in the Black Economic Development Conference, where his "Black Manifesto" was adopted. He also founded a nonprofit organization called the Unemployment and Poverty Action Committee. As a part of his Black Manifesto, on a Sunday morning in May, 1969, Forman interrupted services at New York City's Riverside Church to demand $500 million in reparations from white churches to make up for injustices African Americans had suffered over the centuries. Although Riverside's preaching minister, the Rev. Ernest T. Campbell, termed the demands "exorbitant and fanciful," he was in sympathy with the impulse, if not the tactic. Later, the church agreed to donate a fixed percentage of its annual income to anti-poverty efforts." "We, the black people assembled in Detroit, MIchigan for the National Black Economic Development Conference, are fully aware that we have been forced to come together because racist white America has exploited our resources, our minds, our bodies, our labor."

The enemy has even deadlier weapons - weapons which he used in France, in the Low Countries, in Scandinavia, in the Balkans, to undermine the people's will to resist; weapons which he is using here. Propoganda is a great deal more than persuading people to believe something that isn't true; it is a technique that works below the surface of the mind, warping men's emotions with fantasies and fears, diverting their thinking toward economic conflicts...."
