- This August 19, 1983 editorial, published in the Greensboro Record, responds to an editorial about race relations that had recently been published by Greensboro's African American newspaper, the Carolina Peacemaker. The Record lists fundamental differences in the way the two editors approach race relations. First, the Record claims to not assume the worst about people and asserts that it is not bad to notice differences in human beings; however, the Record believes applying prejudicial attributes to whole categories of humans is wrong. Second, the Record claims to "see nothing to be gained from hypocrisy in race relations." The editorial from the Peacemaker was republished in the Record for reference. These articles were clipped and saved in a scrapbook by Clarence "Curly" Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the 1960 sit-ins that spawned lunch counter sit-ins across the South and rejuvenated the civil rights movement.
