Wilson United press International time blurs the memory of those years just after the armistice when the United states awk Wardly was adjusting to an unknown new world filled with unimaginable terrors at Home and abroad. But the year 1919 can be pinpointed one of shameless . Civil disorder. This disorder consisted of race riots Between Whites and negroes in several cities including Washington i a. There was race trouble in 1919 in Tulsa. Okla., Chicago and Detroit and elsewhere although the names of other cities do not pop to mind. There would be no Point in dredging up these 1919 sorrows for consideration almost 50 years later hut for a single disquieting fact. It Itiat the 1919 race riots seemed to trigger each other. T Here seemed to be a sequence in the disorders though unstable racial elements in one Community Reading of riotous murder elsewhere were inspired to engage for some of their own. Racial violence in Birmingham ala., May trigger something elsewhere. In the Light of events of 1919 that would be the expected pattern. Against such triggering there arc several factors. These include the Public and private awareness of impending trouble and the desire to Avert it. There the negroes new political significance and the eagerness of politicians to please them. Another Factor the infatuation of . Statesmen with the idea of presenting to africans an image pleasing to the tribesmen newly ennobled citizens of free and Independent if not self sufficient nations. None of these factors existed in 1919 there were other factors that did not exist in 1919. There was not under Way in 1919 any Effort the Federal government to impose racial integration on states. Neither were negroes North and South in 1919 organized behind aggressive and sometimes belligerent leaders nor was the negro in 1919 a political prize greatly cherished one of the major political parties. These factors All Bear today on the race situation in the United states and they do not Bear always on the Side of peace and reason.
