NOVEMBER 15

Summary

The author and P. D. East discuss the manuscript of Eastís autobiography. In addition, East gives him numerous other materials on white racism. Griffin meets Eastís wife and daughter who lead a lonely life, as they have been ostracized from society. Later that night the author studies the numerous items that East has given him and discovers that the real crooks and criminals, the most obscene figures are not the ignorant ranting and raving racists, but the politico-legal men who justify and rationalize racism through propaganda and legislation.

Notes

This entry gives a deeper insight into the character of East, as he and the author not only discuss the final edition of the autobiographical manuscript, but also those portions of the manuscript that East has deleted and which the author wants restored.


The next part of the dayís entry is about another shameful aspect of racism - the ostracism and social boycott that the innocent family members, of the person who does not believe in racism, have to face. The heavy price that they have to pay for being firm on their ideals, is loneliness. Eastís wife and daughter are one such example, who have been ostracized by the society except by two Jewish families, who also must be facing a similar boycott.

The next part of the entry gives further insight into white racism. This time the legal and political aspects of this evil are exposed. The author studies the research material, hate pamphlets, news clippings, letters and other items that East had given him to read. These reveal that the real obscene racists are not the ranting, raving ones but those men who deliberately distort facts and figures to destroy and subvert the hearts and minds of their ignorant fellow whites.
