Download PDF for this date

Segregationist John Kasper today told reporters that he considers Jews to be “worse than Negroes. ” The anti-Jewish and anti-Negro agitator led a group of pickets in front of the White House protesting President Eisenhower’s integration stand.

He alleged to reporters that the Negro problem was created by “Northern Jews” who brought Negroes to the South and sold them to plantation owners. The agitator, against whom legal action is pending, made the statements in front of the White House.
