Transcript Anglo-American friends and fellow-citizens in Texas designed to form in the minds of their listeners a sympathetic attitude toward the Mexican people. CHAIRMAN: I can see how your proposed Anti-Race Hatred Law is fundamentally sound and undoubtedly would be in keeping with American principles of justice and equality. Don't you think, however, that a more effective way to solve the problem is to approach it first through our social, civic, and educational institutions? MR. PERALES: In normal times, yes; but just now we are facing a national emergency which requires the wholehearted, unfailing cooperation of every American citizen and every inhabitant of our land, and there is not sufficient time to follow the persuasive, tactful method which you have just suggested any more than there is for the national defense industries to close their doors until striking employees have settled their wage and hour disputes with their employers. As you know, there are now before our National Congress two or three bills intended to {(outlaw strikes in national defense industries during our present emergency. If our national defense program cannot wait until strikers have adjusted their differenceswith their employers, it goes without saying that neither can it wait for our narrow-minded citizens to stop inciting racial prejudices that handicap our nation's preparedness program as much, if not more, as do labor disputes, inasmuch as our enemies can avail themselves of both weapons to very good advantage. Furthermore, the enactment of an Anti- Race Hatred law would in no way prevent us from approaching the problems through our social, civic, and educational institutions as a secondary method to be used jointly with the first one,; namely, the legislative method. That is why I have also suggested that a corps of cultured Anglo-American lecturers and writers be sent to Texas to initiate and conduct a vigorous campaign among our Anglo-American friends designed to end all racial prejudices in so far as members of the Caucasian Race are concerned. CHAIRMAN: Will the situation you have just described affect in any way the loyalty and devotion of our American citizens of Mexican descent toward the United States of America?
