TranscriptBlack Nationalist Advocates Destruction of White Power

(Continued from Page 1)

in America are hot advocates of black nationalism or black power, and that many tactical differences for attaining freedom and rights exist among black people.
"My view about black power, " he explained, "ls this: that true black power Is impossible without the destruction of white power."
He dared any white American bold enough to say black people are citizens in any state in the union to go to Mississippi this summer carrying a sign reading ''Black people are human beings and are just as good as anyone else."
He said black people should not be concerned about whether whites love them, but they should rather try to break down the system which exploits them. He clarified, however, that Blacks who do not advocate destruction of capitalism are not necessarily "Uncle Toms, "
"We (Socialist Workers Party members) discriminate against capitalists, " Boutelle said.
He charged that the capitalist system supports racism and predicted that an active black movement against this system will eventually come.
As a hopeful candidate In the 1968 national elections, Boutelle waged attacks on white candidates in the political races. He called Sen. Robert Kennedy a "slick fox;" Gov. Lurleen Wallace he called "Cancer Wallace;" Sen.
Eugene McCarthy was tagged a "racist, conservative politicician, "
On the subject of the Vietnam war, the speaker also said, "The only one reason we (Negroes) should have to go to Vietnam is to study the tactics of the National Liberation Front."
He said since the nickname for the National Liberation Front is "Charlie, " it is ironical chac "Charlie (al so a nickname popular among blacks for whites) sends us to Vietnam to fight Charlie (NLF)."
He added, "Most crimes in America have been committed
by whites."
