“PEACE OR RACE WAR"
By H. G. McGinnis
ociety is m arching sw iftly tow ard a tragic racial con
flict. The dem and for racial justice, denied discussion at
the Paris Peace Conference ending the first World War,
is steadily increasing. The w orld’s colored peoples are be
coming acutely aw are of the justice due them. This time,
when the peace planners gather, the Chinese, Filipinos,
and other Asiatic peoples will be loud in their demands for
The nations which boast most loudly about their leader
ship in democracy are the very ones which m aintain exclu
sion laws and practice race bigotry. The U. S., Canada,
A ustralia, New Zealand, and the Union of South Africa
have put up bars against Asiatics ,although recently the
U. S. did decide to adm it a thin yearly trickle of Chinese.

pleased many of the European statesm en for one reason
only; they w ere highly cynical concerning American u tte r
ances about the n atu ral rights of man. They enjoyed seeing
the American representatives squirm at this unexpected
development. Surely, they exclaimed to one another glee
fully, a delegation which offers a resolution calling for
religious tolerance could not refuse to accept an am endm ent
calling for racial tolerance!
Obviously, the Americans couldn’t do th at and rem ain

tolerance! This autom atically killed the Japanese amend
Nor w ere the Japanese perm itted to offer a resolution
on racial tolerance. The B ritish delegation checked all
attem pts to bring up the m atter, giving as its reason the
fact th at even a most vague declaration would raise serious
disturbances w ithin the British Commonweath of Nations.
This was obviously true, for A ustralia’s prem ier vowed
heatedly th a t should the race resolution pass, he would
appeal directly to the race prejudices of the people of the
U. S. and the Dominions. The fact th at this th reat caused
the American and British leaders to refuse all fu rth er
discussions of the m atter proves how strongly they felt
th at race prejudice existed w ithin their respective nations.
No doubt the Versailles incident played a m ajor role
in Jap an ’s subsequent campaign to organize all Asia against
the w hite race. As her agents w ent through Asia, and even
throughout Africa, they had plenty of undeniable facts at
th eir disposal.
Everyw here they w ent they fanned the flames of racial
hatred. To millions of Asiatics, Japan appeared in the role
of the savior of the w orld’s colored peoples. Even American
voluntary preparation of the Filipinos for independence lost
much value in Asiatic eyes w hen the Japanese pointed out
th a t American officers in the Philippines had excluded
Filipinos from th eir clubs. To this they added hundreds of
ta 1os concerning the treatm ent accorded American Negroes
by th eir w hite fellow countrym en.
N autrally, they never failed to enlarge upon the refusal
of the peace planners at Versailles to make even the most
general declaration concerning the rights of peoples not
