Color Blind: A White Woman Looks at the Negro
Color Blind A White Woman Looks at the Negro Author:Margaret Halsey For the first time, a white woman writes about the Negro, not scientifically, not fictionally, but in terms of her own experiences in meeting Negroes as social equals. Miss Halsey is a humorist turned, for the moment, serious. During the war, she worked at an interracial canteen. In Color Blind she tells casually of some critical moments, and of... more » the many, many more occasions that were deeply rewarding. In such chapters as Color Line and Stag Line and Up from Apathy, she outlines the difficulties that arose and describes how they were worked out.
Reducing race prejudice to two prime elements -- the sexual.bogey and the economic factor of cheap labor -- Miss Halsey shows how the two elements combine to produce ugly situations. With hard-headed realism, she answers the famous question, "Would you like your daughter to marry one?" Even more important, she answers the question of what you or any citizen can do to improve Negro-White relations.
Good-natured, witty and practical, Color Blind is a book written for American white people by someone who has a great deal of faith in them. It is different kind of book about Negroes and white people. It is different because it is not a "problem" book -- it is a solution book for each individual.« less
