The recent Perspectives discussion on race relations made one thing very apparent-the incredible naivete of the typical Hanover student. Whites, why don't you wise up? The "Negro problem" is actually the white man's problem. We created it with slavery and we've perpetuated it through legalized bigotry. Now it's up to us-and the solution seems obvious. The white majority can no longer insist upon control of institutions which morally, if not "legally," belong to the blacks. We must be willing to supply vast amounts of public and private money to build quality black institutions-schools, housing, businesses, etc.-and insist that they be maintained by the black community. All too often we whites forget that this nation was founded and built upon black slave labor. This money belongs to them by right.
