White Farm Communities
Should Have Right of Self
To the Editor: Will you be kind
enough to give me space-bince th
ideals so new. since it has excited
so much intere.-t, and since so many
people are ignorant of my exact
purpose-to exolain to your read
ers just what I propose by the poli
cy of race segregation I have been
advocating for the rural South?
But to begin with, let me say a
word as to the imperative need for
some such remedy as-I have been
urging. I knew when I began this
agitation that thousands and thou
sands of white farmers in all parts
of the South were being forced
from their homes for social reasons
by the growing number of negroes
around them (as my own father
was), but I did not then know how
widespread are the evils resulting
from our present indiscriminate
sandwiching of white and negro
Situation Demands Semedy.
The hundreds of earnest messa.ges
from farmers, and even more ear
nest messages from farmers' wives
and daughters, have opened my
eyes. A white farmer may have
bought land in what he expected to
remain forever a white community,
may have built a good home with
this expectation, ordering his whole
life accordingly. And yet some
non-resident owning land adjoining
him may put any kind of negroes
on it, terrorizing the fanner's wife
and daughters, destroying the social
life of thc community, depreciating
the value of the farmer's land, and
finally forcing him to move for
social reasons-leaving the negroes
to gobble up the farm for half its
This ia nota fancy picture but a
literal report of what is actually
happening all over the Cotion Belt.
Aimost every section of the South
feels the blighting effect of such
conditions. Worthy settlers refuse
to come, and farmers already ina
community hesitate to build worthy
country homes, because they have
no assurance that they or their chil
dren will not be forced fo leave the
place in order to find plenty of
? Simple Law Advocated.
If we are to save the rural South
to the white race, we must find some
remedy, and I have become con
vinced that an aroused public senti
ment is not enough. We must have
a statute which will enable any
white community that wishes to do
so to take steps to insure its re
n^?ihin^ white-a statute framed
not in a spirit of injustice and per
secution to the negro, but in a spirit
of justice and protection to the
Briefly, I propoje a simile law
which will say that wherever the
greater part of the land acreage in
any given district that may be laid
off is owned by one race, a majori
ty of the voters in such a district
may say (if they wish) that in future
no land shall be sold to a person of
a different race- Provided such ac
tion is approved or allowed (as be
ing justified by consideration of the
peace, protection, and social life of
the community), by a reviewing
judge or board of county commis
It may be argued, I know, that
such a law is unjust because with
the government of the South as it
is, it could be utilized by white peo
ple to keep their communities
white, but the negroes would rarely
or never be able to use it to make a
community wholly negro. All of
which I admit, and yet I believe it
Not Unjust to the Negro.
I believe it is just because the
white man needs the social protec
tion of such a law and the negro
doesn't. If a majority of his neigh
bors are white, the negro doesn't
care. His land is made moie val
uable by the predominance cf neigh
bors of a different race; the chances
of selling it for its worth are bet
ter; his family are not uneasy or
unsafe; they don't mind running
off day or night to see neighbors
or kinfolk miles away; and his
money-making facilities are better.
But with the white man surrounded
by negro neighbors exactly the con
trary conditions exist. So I am
confident such a law as I propose
would be just, and eminent law
yers have assured me it would be
As for its practicability, that ia
apparent on ita face. It is not a
radical measure. It would not be
forced on any community that
doesn't want it. But wherever any
white community doea wish to
keep itself white and does want the
protection of such a law as I pro
pose, I believe it should have that
