The Honorable Ivd.n. Allen, Jr.
Mayor of Atlanta
Atlanta, Ga.
Sir: This ie to congratulate you most heartily for taking
a firm stand against the infamous Westtfi~ian, Stokely
Carmichael. The freedom that such as/are being al.lowed to
wreck our nation is beyond comprehension.
However, I am shocked that you favor "even a stronger
open housing bill II than it is in its present form. This is
unquestionably a measure that will eliminate freedom of choice
for all, even you. This also, will NOT stop riots such as
have just had. Neither integration, open housing, nor any of
the things this movement ostensibly pursues is the real goal
behind it all.
You IIIllSt know that they are asking for the IMPOSSIBLE,
and they are aJ.l intelligent enough to know this. The real
goal is REVOLUTION. This should be clear for all who have
eyes to see and ears to hear.
Hundreds of thousands of people, white people, live
in the same squalor that thousands of Negroes live in.
But
it has never entered their minds that riots and destra.ction
of property was the way to obtain better living conditional
After all, PEOPLE MA.XE THEIR OWN ENVIRONMENT. These living
conditions did NOT come already equipped with filth, vermin
and squalor.
PEOPLE MAKE SLUM:;.
You have made a courageous stand for which people across
the nation will admire and applaud you. Please do not now fall
into the "liberal" cliches, that after, they really DID have an
excuse for their a.narceyl There is NO excuse for this conduct.
I know you are a busy mn, but I beg of you to take time to
read the enclosed. It will be of help to you.
