Debates With Negro Team; Harvard Calls for Educational Propaganda
The question as to whether or not race prejudice can be eliminated was the subject of a debate before a large audience at the Civic Club Friday evening, between the Liberal Club of Harvard University and a team representing Howard University.
Negro students representing Howard argued that race prejudice is innate, while the Harvard team contended that racial prejudices are acquired and can be eliminated by education. Science does not support the superiority theory held by certain groups who look ‘with great favor upon themselves and with contempt or hatred on others,” the Harvard team contended.
