Negro and White
Equality Asked By
Ministerial Ass’n,
Whether intermarriage between
Negroes and whites would result
if Negroes were given atcual equal
ity with whites here was a ques
tion raised Monday noon at a meet
ing of tho Milwaukee Minister
ial association at the YMCA.
Prof. George E Teter, head of
tho English department at Mil
waukee State Teacher’s college and
chairman of the Milwaukee Race
RaJ«tions council, asked the min
sters to preach on race equality
on Febr. 14th, which has been de
signated as race relations Sun
| day, He urged greater equality be
i tween Negroes and whites
Negroes, ho said, should be per
rnitted to live where they please ;
' instead of being segregated and
| should have equal opporunities for
! work in factories, department
.tore and other fields. He said that
although Negroes had the worst
living conditions in the city the.y
would not be permitted to live in
either of tho government’s housing
projects here.
Social equality between the races
would lead to intermarriages,
warned the Rev Roscoe A. Barnes,
minister of St. John’s Methodist
church, adding, “I do not believe
in that.” Prof- Teter discounted
that possibility.
