Creator:Landry, Stuart O.
Title:Rebuilding the Tower of Babel; 1957
Date:1957
Description:

From the McCain (William D.) Pamphlet Collection; In this pamphlet, Landry asserts that integrationists are trying to reunite the races that God separated in the Old Testament story of the Tower of Babel. He asserts that new anthropological and psychological theories of racial equality are pseudoscientific and backed by Communist interests. Landry cites some Old Testament quotations that he interprets as implying that segregation is ordered by God, and he asserts that race amalgamation will be lead to the downfall of Christianity. He also compares African Americans' social condition to that of Jews, Italians, Germans, and Irish in order to support his argument that African Americans' place at the bottom of the United States' social structure is a result of their lack of effort.
