How NOT to Get Job Opportunities

Record #:
John Wheeler, a prominent banker in Durham, commented that Negroes should be given more opportunity for industrial training. Author Jesse Helms sympathizes with Wheeler, but takes exception with his determined support of federal legislation requiring employers to hire job applicants based on race rather than experience. Segregation is at the core of Helms' article, as he points out that many people rallying against such treatment are in fact perpetrating its continuation.
