NEED LEV IS?
By The Associated Press
His uniform is the same shade
of blue, the metal of his badge
the same quality. But when a
policeman's skin is black, his
problems tend to multiply. Of-
ten, he is the man most in the
middle - either because of his
color or his badge.
"The department reflects the
same social conditions that are
presently common," says Capt.
W. Lawson, one of 21 black of-
ficers on Seattle's 1,000-man
police force. He is a 20 - year
"When black officers join the
force," he continued, "they
know they will be singled out by
black militants. The vast ma-
jority of black officers take it
in stride. The militants are do-
ing their thing and I'm doing
my thing and we both under-
stand each other."
Bob Ingram, 33, a sergeant
was named last January as Mi-
ami's "Policeman of the Year."
His godfather w a s the city's
first black officer and was shot
to death while on duty. A
bearded father of two, Ingram
responded to an Associated
Press sampling of the status of
the black policeman:
"I have it easier than he did,
but it's still no Sunday school
"In white neighborhoods, they
call 'nigger' at me. Around the
ghetto it's worse - unprintable
stuff. Anyone who yells those
things needs help, baby, not a
punch in the mouth . .."
"I'm the first to admit that
black persons gripe about treat-
ment f r o m black officers at
least as much as they complain
about white policemen," In-
"The black man out there in
the ghetto has a poor image of
police. It stems from the old
days when officers would slap
anybody on his tail that got
cute with them. They were hir-
ed for brawn, not brains. They
sometimes had muscles between
their ears, too."
Some black cops tend to hold
their uniform or badge, rather
than the color of their skin, re-
sponsible for attitudes they en-
counter among fellow blacks.
An Atlanta vice squad detec-
tive, Lt. J. H. Amos, who began
as a patrolman in 1957, said of
racial disturbances: "Those peo-
ple don't give a damn what col-
or you are. If you're a police-
man, they're going to rock you."
Milwaukee has 2,000 police-
men, 53 of them black. One of
them, who asked that his name
not be used, is a plain-clothes-
man. Speaking of the slums he
"T h e uniform is taboo, no
matter what color you are. Any
animosity is aimed at 'whitey,'
and whitey's uniform, for what
it represents . . . But I stay up
with the times. And I s t a y
clean. The brothers know I'm a
policeman, but they respect me
because of the way I look and
the way I act towards them.
They know I'm also fair."
"There's a portion of the kids,
though, that no matter what
you look like, as long as you're
'the man' you ain't w o r t h a
damn. I'd say about 75 per cent
of the blacks are pro-police and
about 25 per cent are against.
With the 25 per cent, there has
been some reason for them to
adopt this attitude," he says.
"Years ago, it was the grown-
ups who hated you, but not it's
the kids, the little kids, 5 and
10 years old," said Arthur
Jackson, 48, a Chicago police-
man. "You've got to be flexible,
like a whip or a tree. You've got
to bend. So, they call y o u a
name, so what?"

forms then? And what keeps

who wears an Afro haircut and
often appears in t h e station
house in a loose-fitting African
shirt known as a dashiki, he is
interested in improving the
image of the black cop among
members of his race.
As he puts it:
"You can help y o u r fellow
black more than you ever could

Before we've always been just
good mercenaries - niggers de-
fending the white power struc-

Fred Williams, a 6-foot, 280-
pound patrolman has been with
the Detroit Police Department
for 16 years.
"The black ghetto's salvation
is for aware black men to get
into law enforcement . . . Most
black people are not opposed to
law, but are opposed to the way
it is being applied," Williams
"I find the work challenging
and enjoyable," said Levy Mc-
Quietor. 26, of the Dallas police
force. "You get people who are
drunk who curse you. But they
are cursing this blue uniform
and what it represents. I never
felt they were cursing me per-
Some black policemen find a

white cops, plus what they re-
gard as discrimination in pro-
motion. Said o n e after three .

but didn't pass the oral exam."
"There's no question about
it," says a black policeman in a
small California city in discus- _
sing discrimination. "There's
little jokes like, 'Hey, you gonna
tear off your patch and join
the Panthers if they riot?'
Plain - clothesman Cornelius
Johnson, 40, of Chicago, doesn't
like being called black.
"There are some policemen
who just don't like that," he
says. "I mean, the idea is be-

He is 35, a nine-year veteran,

"The purpose of the emergency conference is simple and to the point: to plan
anti-war demonstrations and other anti-war activities of the most massive kind cen-
tering on the crucial issue of withdrawal from the war and conducted in a peaceful
and orderly fashion. This is the way to involve immense masses of ordinary people,
trade unionists, GIs and their families, students, moderates, liberals and radicals,
young and old, and all those who oppose the war regardless of their differences on
various other matters." (Excerpted from the Conference Call.)
