However, the members of organized crime, the kind of offensive that has increastaelv blarlr ritipc u New York Times Service NEWARK, N.J. The Ma- fia, entrenched in New Jersey for decades but confronted wi.h aggressive law enforce- ment in recent years, is bsing challenged by another aggres- six'e force black racketeers. Law enforcement officials on the federal, state, county and municipal levels emphasized in a series of interviews that their knowledge of black organized crime was much more limited than their information on white racketeers. But they said that they had gathered enough information to show the following: In the last decade, blacks have pushed the Mafia out of some slum neighborhoods and reached working relationships with white racketeers in other black neighborhoods under which blacks pay 10 per cent of their gross to whites in re- turn for political and po- lice protection. The blacks have laid off bets with the white organizations, which have far greater finan- cial resources They have branched out into loan-sharking and sports bookmaking, both traditionally white operations, and are as- suming a greacer role in nar- cotics wholesaling Blacks have risen to man- agerial positions, such as con- tollers, in w h i t e operated numbers banks. However, the blacks have failed to reach the cbcision-maMng level, or, of course, membership in the Ma- fia. "Organized crime is probably more integrated than a great majority of law enforcement agencies in New one state investigator said. Explaining why law enforce- ment officials have more infor- mation on whites than on black members of organized crime, one federal investigator said. "For the longest tune our in- telligence system was white oriented. To be honest I think most of us thought black crime as street crime, muggings, robberies and small-time drug peddling." Because of this, law enforce- ment agents said, black or- ganized crime has grown for the most part unhampered by the kind of offensive that has since the early 1960's resulted in the imprisonment of major Mafia figures in New Jersey. According to law enforce- ment sources, the black gams in organized crime (not neces- sarily the Mafia) were, except for what may be a black con- trolled numbers game in the predominantly white area of port Newark, strictly limited to black neighborhoods in the increasingly black cities of New Jersey. "When the day comes that blacks are involved in white neighborhoods then you'll see white politicians and society get all uspet over black or- ganized said one black federal investigator. "It's just the same with nar- cotics, as long as it was con- fined to the ghetto no one except blacks were concern- ed with it, but the minute It spread to the white suburbs everybody launched their war on the investigator said. These achievements by the black mobsters were not based on any commitment to civil rights by their white counter parts, but rather were based on practical grounds and on vio- lence.
