Jack Robinson Urges
Disturbed about the growing
tension between some members
of the black and Jewish com-
munities, the chairman and chief
executive of Perry Drug Stores
called for the two groups to re-

cated to the concepts of brother-
hood, and families can withstand
dissent among their ranks,"
"We have a common enemy.
That enemy is prejudice, dis-
crimination,, inequality and in-
justice," he said. "To destroy this
,enemy, we need the collective
strength of our two peoples."
Robinson called on black and
Jewish communities to recommit
themselves to cementing their
"We have an obligation to do
that not only for ourselves, but
for our children," he said. "We
have that obligation because few
people have suffered as we have."
