Description The Racial Integrity of the American Negro by Alexander Harvey Shannon

Excerpt from The Racial Integrity of the American Negro The author of this book has been for some years a close observer of race relations and a student of those problems growing out of racial contacts. As Chaplain of the Mississippi State Penitentiary, he was called upon to minister to several hundred Negro prisoners, thus gaining a measure of intimate knowledge of the Negro criminal. As a teacher in the employ of the Imperial Government of Japan, he was privileged to make a brief study of an Oriental civilization. Here was gained a measure of knowledge of the Eurasian problem, so acute in some of the Asiatic countries and in evidence wherever contact of East and West has occurred. The chief interest of the author in the Negro problem has centered about the matter of racial intermixture - the mulatto problem - and most of his writings have had to do with this evil. The present study, while endeavoring to ascertain and to state facts impartially, necessarily gives a large measure of personal reaction to certain of the problems involved in present-day contacts of the two races, the black and the white, in the United States. Whoever really understands conditions now obtaining in this area is prepared to understand the situation wherever two dissimilar races occupy the same territory, or wherever casual racial contacts occur - as is now the case throughout the greater part of the world. There is a conscious, an intentional, limiting of this study largely to those features of the situation which may well tend toward discouragement, if not toward hopeless pessimism. Since it now appears fashionable to approach the Negro problem from the standpoint of the invincible optimist, resolutely ignoring or consciously discarding those facts which, fairly faced, would shatter so many pleasant theories, it is well that someone should present the darker side of the picture, for there is a distressingly dark side.
