Disavowals of violence have been made repeatedly by
many top American officials. President Johnson and Vice
President Humphrey, for example, have denounced rioting
and rioters on a number of occasions, and so have many
civil-rights figures. However, police officials, local political
leaders and some members of Congress cite statements such
as those above as part of the climate that has fostered vio-
lence. In addition are the pamphlets and other publications
flowing into Negro areas and openly inciting slum dwellers to
guerrilla war. One pamphlet from Revolutionary Action Move-
ment (RAM) says: ‘‘Weapons of defense employed by Afro-
American freedom fighters must consist of a poor man’s ar-
senal. Gasoline fire bombs (Molotov cocktails), lye or acid
bombs (made by injecting lye or acid in the metal end of
light bulbs) can be used extensively... . Extensive sabotage
is possible.”
