Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. ···
City Hall
Atlanta, Geor g ia
Dear Mr e Allen ,
At long last, we have a Mayor of a principle city who has
chosen to stand up to the onslaught of a militant ne gro leader.
New Yorkers have heard thi s evil rabble-rouser, Stokely
Carmichael, on the radio many times, spilling his communist
oriented diatribe on "black power." It would appear that wherever
he has operated in his instigation of riots, he has been above
the law - until now.
Of all the costly negro riots in northern cities to date, not
one perpetrator of these r i ots has been justly punished for
breaking the law . They all have gone 'Scott free ' up here because
the negro vote is in the hands of certain nefarious negro
politicians to whom white politicians have bent their knee.
The 'civil right s ' of white people have b e en quite forgotten in
this mad rush to give the negro everything he de mands. The crime
incidence in t h is city has risen to outrage ous figures and the
coddling of negro criminals whom the police arrest at the possible
cost of the ir own job s is now a national dis grace. Our Courts
t urn these muggers, burglars, hold-up men, arsonists, et cetera,
loose to prey again on the whites as fast as the polic e apprehend
In the beginning, many good people extended their sympathy and
help to the betterment of the negro but now that these Civil Rights
bills have allowed negroes to riot at will , burn other people's
prpperty,loot stores, rrrurder and cause millions of dollars damage
and then be held u p justifiably by politicians who covet the vote,
the white people are not going to stahd for it .
The tremendous costs to tax payers of trying to satisfy the negro
demand s has bec ome a reality we cannot afford and unless the law
is recognized AND APPLIED to these rabble-rousing ne gro leaders,
the white populat ion can be overcome, politically. Untold numbers
of decent, lawabiding people have great admiration for your singular courage to have this Carmichael apprehended and charged. We
can now hope that the law a gainst cau sing riots in Atlanta will
be carried out . I f it is , it will be the fir s t time a May or of a
leading city has had the courage to stand up to the evilness of
negro power. It could also lend strength and backbone to other
Mayors who have sold out to the threatening n e gro leaders and who
have been fri ghte ned by the "black power~' theory. In a dmiration,
Yours slncerely, ~ - ~
