- From the McCain (William D.) Pamphlet Collection; The Jewish author of this pamphlet prefers to remain unknown, because he is afraid some people will ridicule his support of segregation. He points out that all of the Jews in the United States do not necessarily agree with the Anti-Defamation League and the American Jewish Congress's support of school integration. He feels that integration in the public schools will severely decrease the security of students and the quality of the education they receive. He promotes the White Citizens Councils as organizations that speak out against ending segregation and also help African Americans advance. He also notes that African Americans must desire to advance themselves and that legislation alone will not accomplish a better life for African Americans.
