  • Text: John S. J(night The Atlanta Riot JOHN S. KNIGHT Unmasked·SNCC T he recent riots in Atlanta offer convincing e vidence that most, if . not all, of the racial violence in our large cities bas been organized and led by a smal l minority bent upo n the destruction of our society. My authority for this statement is Ralph McGill, publisher of the Atlanta Constitution, long a moving and militant force for equal treatment of the N egro citizen as provided by law and the Constitution of the United States. McGill places responsibility for the Atlanta disturbances squarely upon the Student NonViolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC, or SNICK) and its I e a de r, Stokely Carmichael. SNICK, according to McG ill, L-----------.__ has no more than 300 members. These have been the agents of anarchy in Watts, New York, Chicago and other major cities .

Krueger Manai\ni Editor Dlek West Editorial Editor FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1966 The Trials of Atlanta _ UNTIL THIS week, t~e City of Atlanta had maintained a glowing reputation as one of the hardest-working ~ommunities in the building of interracial harmony and progress. Through the efforts and cooperation of whites and Negroes, it established itself as a model of peaceful integration, a model studiei by other Southern communities trying to solve their own racial problems. Then Stokely Carmichael came to town with his inflammatory sales pitch for "black power" and his rantings against "the white devils." And on Tuesday night, Carmichael's loudspeaker campaign came' to fruition with the rioting of a mob. This mob a ttacked the mayor, who tried to reason with its members. It attacked the policemen who tried to restore order. But it did more-it attacked the concept Atlanta has represented, the concept that real compromise and cooperation can achieve a spirit in ·wnich all races can work together to build a better city. • THIS WAS perhaps the greatest damage that the mob did. Now other city fathers may be tempted -to shrug t heir shoulders and say: "What's the use? Atlanta ·has done as much as any city in the South to make co_operative integration work, and look what happened." Dallas citizens in particular may be discouraged by Atlanta's experience, for the two cities are very much alike in their populations, in their economies and in their attempts to build through interracial cooperation. But before we decide to abandon the path that Dallas and Atlanta have tried to follow, it would serve us well to look deeper into the events of the current week. There is more to the story than the headlined activities of Carmichael's SNCC barnstormers or of the hundreds of young rioters. We should note that there were Negro as well as white leaders who tried, at the risk of their safety, to quell the viole·nce. There were Negro as well as white policemen who skillfully restored order before the riot turned into a bloodbath. And, perhaps most important, the Negro Atlantans, local civil-rights leaders and ministers, were the ones who organized a door-to-door campaign the following day to counter Carmichael's efforts to turn the city into a battleground. IN SHORT, in Atlanta, there is a durable fabric of society, a fabric that has been woven of both white and black threads through the years of cooperation. The efforts of these years have not been as dramatic or as wellpublicized as the riot, but in the final analysis they should prove to be more lasting in their results. These results of the work of men of good will will not be destroyed overnight by men of Carmichael's stripe. Rational Atlantans of both races cannot stand by and see their community torn asunder, because those of both races know that they have a stake in its future . The Rev. Samuel Williams, president of the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP, summed it up most succinctly when he declared: "Atlanta is not by far a perfect city but it is too great to be destroyed by simpleminded bigotry." �

  • Text: A Cause -For Anger MAYOR Ivan Allen· Jr. of Atlanta is one of the new breed of Soutnern political leaders who seeks equal justice fo r all under the law. He has helped earn his community a repu ta ti on .for enligh tened handling of racial matters. The mayor is angry. No t because he was tumbled in the dust by a mob he was trying to calm. He is angry because, he says, the riot was egged on by a group which calls itself non-violent. There is substance in what the mayor says. A sound truck manned by members of t he Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee was rushed to the area of tension where police and taunt ing Negroes faced each other. Over the loudspeaker SNCC denounced ~racist police" and ext olled "black power." In the ensuing violence 16 persons were injured. Between 60 and 70 were arrested. More moderate Negro leadership is critical of SNCC's tactics. One Atlanta minister said t he situation was under control before the "nonviolen t" ones arrived. "They whipped them up with hate," said t'he minister. Others, including the Squthern Chr istian Leadership Conference, condemned t he violence. In these times of tension and unres t , no community can afford t o point a fing"'r a t another or close its eyes to its own shortcomings. The sit uation in Atlanta, how- ,ii Atlanta ever, shows how easily violence can be created ·by irresponsible agent s and how seriously it can affect t he patient, dedicated search for sol utions by individuals of both races. May or Allen has cause to be angry and so have those in Atlanta and elsewhere who know that violence can only destroy. j �

  • Text: Justice • Ill Atlanta What happened· to Stokely Carmichael in Atlanta on Thursda.y strikes us as about as close to even-handed justice as it's possible to get. Carmichael was arrested ·on a charge of inciting to riot in connection with the hiring of a sound truck that urged Negroes to protest the wounding of a car-theft suspect who tried to escape. In the riot that followed, 15 persons were injured . . Inciting to riot is a misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of one year in jail. There may well be places left in the South where the charge would have been insur- rection, a capital offense. But Atlanta is a city of predominantly thoughtful, moderate people. Justice there is a point of pride. Carmichael will be tried and found guilty or innocent. If the finding is guilty he bas avenues of appeal to the highest courts. Carmichael, leader of the Student Nonviolent Co-ordinating Committee, has publicly advocated that if Negroes fail to get what they want they take the law into · their own hands. He can be thankful, we believe, that the people of Atlanta hold the law in higher respect tl.lan that.· �

  • Text: The Editor's Notebook Snick's Agents of A a c y Are Fomenting Urba:t;1 ts THE RECENT riots in Atlanta offer convincing evidence that most, if not all , of the racial violence in our large cities has been organized and led by a small minority bent upon the destruction of our society. My authority for this statement is Ralph McGill, publisher of the Atlanta Constitution, and long a moving and militant force fo r equal treatment of the Negro citizen as provided by law and the Constitution of the United States. McGill places responsibility for the Atlanta disturbances squarely upon the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (Snick) and its leader, Stokely Carmichael. Snick, according to _McGill, has no more than 300 members. These have been the a gents of anarchy in Watts, New York, Chic ago, Cleveland and other major cities. Snick's beginnings were more ausp1c1ous. Its early student leaders were motivated by high dedication to the civil rights cause. Now the John Lewises and other responsibles are out. Con trol of Snick is held by the ex treme radicals, of which Car:nichael is the dominant figure . As McGill says, Snick is no longer a civil r ights organizati on but an anarchistic group which is openly and officially commi tt ed to th e destruction of exist ing institutions. T hough small in membership, Snick appeals to all haters of the white man. Its slogans of defiance intrigue the very yo ung as was shown in A tlanta where the mob was largely com posed of youngsters in the 12 t o 18 age ran~e. the NAACP and Whitney Young who heads the Urban League have all repudiated Stokely Carmichael and h is tac~ tics. ·* THE CITY of Atlanta has long enjoyed an enviable reputation for racial amity. Ironically, it was Atlanta's splen,did image that the destroyers sought to tarnish. And yet, unwittingly, Stokely Carmichael and his followers performed a useful service not only for Atlanta but for the entire nation. For here was stripped away the myth that Negroes are always incited to riot over poor Jiving conditions, Jack of employment and denial of civil rights. Mr. Carmichael has now revealed · himself for what he isa scheminlg 'fomenter of disorder, a mad dog who attacks all whites indiscriminately, a revolutionist who seeks to burn and destroy, a terrorist who defies law and spits upon our flag . THE RIGHT to pe~ceable assembly is guaranteed by th e Bill of Rights, as is the freedom to demonstrate and to seek redress of grievances. · Togeth~r and ip- a .spirit of constructive cooperation, the Negro and white communi~ies must find solutions and answers to the problems which beset our cities. For they are both numerous and difficult. A ma jor start has been made in m a ny areas. Where failures have occurred, the Negro is usually as much at fault as his white brother. Sus picions, distrust and fear of association have worked against the Negroes' best interests.
