Transcript jjt-—- regulate tax-supported schools is not delegated to the federal government. Therefore, the federal government has no power whatever to interfere in any way with the operation of schools in the individual states. The Supreme Court's decision in the school segregation cases is not a judicial interpretation of the Constitution. It is a political decision, grounded not in law. but in Earl Warren's notions about psychiatry and sociology.8 Warren, in his opinion, says that the Fourteenth Amendment does not really apply to the problem of segregation in the public schools, because, in 1868, when the Fourteenth Amendment was adopted, there were no public schools in the South. The framers of the Fourteenth Amendment couldn't possibly have had public schools in mind.* Chief Justice Warren admits that he is reading into the Fourteenth Amendment something that is not there, but that he thinks should be.8 If Supreme Court Justices do not like our Constitution — as the present Justices obviously do not — they, as citizens, have a right to recommend changes by proper constitutional means. As Supreme Court Justices, however, they are supposed to interpret the Constitution as it is, and not to arrogate- to themselves the illegal power of amendment by arbitrarily reversing all judicial precedent and changing the meaning of the Constitution to suit their own whims. AUTOCRATIC AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL That's exactly what the Supreme Court did in the school segregation cases; it amended the Constitution by autocratic, unconstitutional means. Earl Warren's segregation decision means: We of the Supreme Court know- that the Fourteenth Amendment was not intended to apply to public schools, but we want it to apply; therefore, we declare that it does apply. After saying enough to prove that the Supreme Court had no constitutional grounds for invading states' rights and telling the states how they must run their public schools, Chief Justice Warren dismisses the question of whether or not the Negroes in the South are provided facilities equal to those of the whites. He tries to explain why a Negro in a school with other Negroes cannot get as much education as if he were in a school with whites, even though the facilities and everything else might be adequate and equal. Mr. Warren deals in what he calls intangibles. He finally comes to grips with the problem by- citing a passage from a previous Court decision which says, "Segregation . . . Page 22 has a tendency to retard the educational and mental development of Negro children, and to deprive them of some of the benefits they would receive in a raciall) integrated school system."0 If there is anybody in the I nilccl States who ought to resent that decision, cast in that language, it should be America's Negro citizens. What that sentence says is that Negroes are not really equal to whites, and that if you don't mix up the Negro and while children so that the Negroes will enjoy the uplifting benefit of associating with the whites, the Negroes are harmed. Actually, no other group of people anywhere on earth at any time in recorded history ever made such rapid progress as America's southern Negroes a private business organization, terror" a whole community and indulge in 0* less acts of arson, vandalism, crinii" assault, and even murder; and none' the liberals or organizations prof lo be dedicated to freedom anil '■ preservation of civil rights ever say word about the innocent and help'" victims of all that violence and tyraii' But let two white hoodlums in a sou' em state beat up one colored man even, as has happened many times, one southern Negro involved in heinous crime be subjected to the * process of law — and all the race ag* tors in the nation want to pass fed« laws which would destroy the lil not only of the southern whites but *J of the southern Negroes, and of all °'': American citizens in the nation.1 with ; their self. gc into the wj Pra den f ravage I'rutall a corr recons If tl ance i and "1 readju But, sider v —Wide World In Baltimore.

The people who helped them make that phenomenal progress were not Supreme Court psychiatrists, New Deal politicians, Socialist agitators, or uplifting busybodies. It was the southern whites who understood the Negroes, treated them with kindness, and lent them a helping hand." Communist propaganda about the brutalizing of Negroes in the South is a lie.
