Interview with Thomas R. Waring
QUESTION 24
INTERVIEWER:

I THINK REALLY, THE, THE LAST THING I MIGHT ASK YOU IS, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THAT YOU THINK WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR OUR AUDIENCE TO KNOW ABOUT THIS PERIOD, IN TERMS OF THE – THE INTENTIONS AND THE MIND OF THE WHITE SOUTH IN THE, IN THE AFTERMATH OF THIS VERY SURPRISING, THIS VERY DIFFICULT DECISION?

Thomas R. Waring:

Mmmmm. Well, I think that uh, it is in – that it is necessary that people of all persuasions uh, try to remove any bitterness that may have occurred before or after or during this difficult period that we're living in. Difficulty is still there, we have a terrific crime rate, and unfortunately, a great deal of it is – comes from the black people – blacks on blacks. The black people themselves are suffering from crime and, and uh, all of the bad points of uh, poverty, and uh, lack of, frankly, lack of training and discipline. And I think it's incumbent on all people to reserve their judgements and try to deal with situations as they are, and not uh, just blow off, and invite serious difficulties.
