A Comparison of the Experiences of Indians and Negroes in American Society.
Patterson, Harold L.
The paper presents a comparison of the experiences of American Indians and Negroes in the American society. The premise of this paper is that Negroes and American Indians have different backgrounds, different cultures, different aspirations, and different philosophies of life and that neither have been assimilated by the American society. As a result their problems are similar, but the cure is not the same because the cause is not the same. The subsequent divisions of this paper are devoted to discussions of the main characteristics of the Negro and Indian roles in the American society, a differentiation of their problems and goals, and some suggestions for an improvement of white relationships with the Indians--which may or may not be appropriate for Negroes. In addition, a bibliography and letters from Chester Babcock, Washington State Assistant Superintendent of Public Instruction, to Harold Patterson, Principal of the Taholah School, and from the Taholah School Board to Chester Babcock are included.
