Violence as Pointer to Racial Impasse

Hutchinson, John
February 1982
National Review;2/5/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 2, p92
This article analyzes the problems associated with the proliferation of inner-city blacks in the U.S. and in Great Britain. According to the author, there is a dearth of public debate on the social implications of population extrapolations; the uncivilized tolerance of the manhandling of the aged by the young; and ignorance of the likelihood of an alliance between black anger, the jugular strike, the terrorist capacity, and the revolutionary purpose. Further, the author asserts that it is the duty of administrators to entertain the possibility that the problem of the inner-city black is insoluble by means customary to the free society.
