:■ ----- ---— *
New York, Dec. 14.—At the
opening of the convention of the
Amateur Athletic Union here to
day a request was received from
tho National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People
that the A. A. U. vote against par
ticipation in the 1936 Olympics in
Berlin. The NACP telegram,
signed by Walter White, reads as
“Will you convey to the Ama
teur Athletic Union the very sin
cere request of the National As
sociation for the Advancement of
Colored People that it vote decis
ively against American participa
tion in the 1936 Olympic games if
they are held in Germany. This Is
asked in no spirit of racial self- J
ishness nor in aty- Ifolier than
thou attitude. The United States
has much to answer for in the
matter of racial discrimination
especially against Negro athletes
in the South. Instead we ask the
A. A. U. to vote against partici
pation on the ground that Ger
many has violated her pledges
iagainst racial discrimination and
for American athletes to partici
pate would be to negate every
principle upon which the Olympic
games are based. Refusal to par
ticipate will, we believe, do untold
good in helping Germany and the
world to realize that racial big
otry must be opposed in its every
manifestation. To participate
would to be to place approval up
on the German government’s de
plorable persecutionof racial and
religious groups and would stuli
fy the Amateur Athletic Union
and all athletes who participate.”
A further outline of the,
jNAACP's opposition on the Olym
pic games was made in a speech
by Mr. White at Mecca Temple,
New York City, December 3rd, at
a mass meeting of the Committee
on Fair Play in Sports, In which
r>uu m op|*JsniK mr tneaf reus
ons American participation in the
1936 Olympics, I would be a crav
en did I not express most vigor
ously and sincerely the hope that
the Committe on Fair Play Jn
Sports, and all others opposed,
quite rightly, to participation in i
the 1936 Olympics do some needed
work in our own United States.”
