MINORITY GROUPS AND INTERGROUP RELATIONS IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA.
RECORD, WILSON
THE NATURE AND PRINCIPAL AREAS OF INTERRACIAL CONFLICT ARE EXAMINED, WITH ATTENTION GIVEN TO CENTRAL AMERICANS, MEXICANS, JAPANESE, AND CHINESE. HOWEVER, FOCUS IS UPON NEGROES, COMPARATIVE NEWCOMERS TO THE BAY AREA, BECAUSE OF NATIONWIDE NEGRO-WHITE TENSIONS. THE FOCUS IS DICTATED, ALSO, BY THE POLITICAL MILITANCY OF BAY AREA NEGROES IN CONTRAST TO THE PASSIVITY OF OTHER MINORITY GROUPS. SUBJECT HEADINGS WITHIN THE STUDY ARE--MINORITY POPULATION GROWTH AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF INTERGROUP TENSIONS, PROBLEM AREAS IN INTERGROUP RELATIONS (EMPLOYMENT, EDUCATION, HOUSING, WELFARE), AND INTERGROUP CONFLICT AND SOCIAL ACTION MOVEMENTS. DEVELOPMENTS OF THE PAST TWO DECADES ARE REPORTED, AND TRENDS AND PROSPECTS ARE ASSESSED. CLASHES WILL COME AS THESE GROUPS, ESPECIALLY NEGROES, BREAK THE BONDS OF THEIR CONFINEMENT. EFFORTS TO DEAL WITH ONE PROBLEM WITHOUT SIMULTANEOUSLY ATTACKING OTHERS ARE LIKELY TO END IN FRUSTRATION AND DEFEAT. EDUCATION MAY BE AN ANSWER, BUT EDUCATIONAL POLICIES NEED TO REFLECT THE SPECIAL NEEDS OF MINORITIES. GROUND RULES MUST BE SOUGHT FOR CONDUCT OF CONFLICT WITH THE HOPE OF EVENTUALLY REALIZING A COHESIVE COMMUNITY.
