62nd General Convention , Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity

It is a great pleasure for me to extend personal greetings to the participants and visitors attending this annual convention of Alpha Phi Alpha. ~irs. Romney joins me in wishing you a successful and productive conference .

In .my experience in the area of human relations, I have found that a majority of the people of this nation have similar goals in their relations with others and with society as a whole . They want human dignity , equal justice and equal opportunity, basic rights which are guaranteed by the fundamental documents of our land. But the simpl:~ and blunt truth is that today , in 1968 , we cannot delude ourselves that these guarantees are in fact operating equally for all persons. That this is and has been the case is a national disgrace . Yet merely facing the fact honestly is not enough. We must all --- as public officials , community leaders , members of organizations , and , most importantly , as individual citizens --- rededicate ourselves to righting this situation within the framework of the law. The history of JUpha Phi Alpha and its many distinguished members is an example of how effective such efforts can be . I am confident that this annual convention will serve to reinvigorate your needed fUture commitment to this cause for humanity. There can be no greater cause , for the destiny of our nation is at stake.

"I joined IBM in June, '65, as an engineer in operations research. I liked the work well enough, but after a year and a half, I began to think that the ideal field for me was computer programming. (This is Alvin Palmer, M.S. in Math, an Associate Programmer at I BM. "But by this time, I was making a pretty good salary. So I was faced with a big question. Would IBM be willing to let me move into a new field which would mean going to school and not being productive for a while? "The answer was 'yes.' I went to programming school full time for three months. And IBM continued to pay my full salat·y."

You don't need a technical degree

"I get a tremendous kick out of programming. You're telling a computer how to do its job, and it really gets you involved. Maybe because you're continually solving problems. Often very complex ones. "But you don't nee<i a technical background like mine. There are plenty of programmers with degrees in liberal arts or business. What counts is having a logical mind. "I'm making good progress in this field, so I'm glad I was able to make the change. I think it indicates how far IBM will go to help you make the most of your·abilities."

----·Bridging the Gap•---between

Business and theN egro Graduate

And how five small colleges and Olin are tackling a doub~e problem: inadequate career planning and ineffective placement


ODAY'S college graduate is in a seller's market. T remendous demands by business for intelligent, well-trained men and women have created a wide range of opportunities. But the NeAro graduate, despite considerable gains in education and employment in recent years, still d oes not share fully in career openings, according to a report by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.* In its first nationwide, industry-by-industry survey, the Commission, which was set up to enforce the Civil Rights Act of 1964, showed that Negroes** are stiU lagging in jobs and educational opportunities. • Although Negroes comprise about 11 per cent of the total U.S. population, they hold only 4. 7 per cent of the white-collar jobs-where most college graduates work. • Only 5.8 per cent of the Negro es in the U.S. labor force as of March, 1966, had four years of college or more, whereas 12.5 per cent of white workers had attained this mark. • Of all the Negroes who do have a college education, the majority have turned-either by inclination or necessity -to such nonbusiness purs uits as teaching ( 70 per cent), medicine and religion. Still, there have been some gains for the Negro. The total number of male Negroes in white-collar jobs bas risen about 140 per cent since 1940. In professional and technical jobs, the number of N egroes more than doubled from 217,000 in 1954 to 525,000 in 1965. Perhaps the most significant advance for the Negro has been in education. The number of Negroes with at least four years of college more than doubled from 320,671 in 1959 to about 675,000 in 1967. L ast year more Negroes were enrolled in college (250,400) and more graduated (24,230) than ever before. Nevertheless, the Negro college student is frequently frustrated in his desire to enter a business career by three specific problems: (1) inadequate or inappropriate tra ining, *Not to be oonfused with Plan8 lor Pro~reM, a voluntary or~llni2atio n ol busines.s and industry thlft 11im.t to remove barriers to minority employ. ment. Olin i! one of 350 member companies. •* The report covered employment problom$ of all minority groups i11clud~ in4 Puerto Riosrtt, M tHticltnl and Indians , but the NeAro moke.t up 93 per cent of lhe nonwhitct worker$ in I he population .

(2) inadequate college placement services and (3) remnants of discrimination that persist despite passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibiting employment discrimination. Many Negroes still have little knowledge of what jobs the current business world offers or how to prepare for careers in industry. On the presumption that there are no opportunities, a large number of Negroes do not even bother to train for a career in business. The fact is more companies are willing t o hire Negro graduates, but many Negroes have been unable to qualify for better paying positions. Thrs is not a reflection on the basic ability of Negroes, but in some cases has been theresult of inadequate educational facilities and environments, states the U.S. Depa rtment of L abor in a recent report. "The answer to Negro employment problems," the Government report adds, "lies in motivating and assisting Negroes to take advantage of educational and training opportunities available to them. It lies in motivating and assisting employers to give the Negroes an even break." "Plenty of positions are open to Negro graduates," says R obert C. Thompson, Olin's corporate manager of manpower placement, "but we can't always find qua lified Negroes to fill them." T he problem is not limited to Negroes alone. "The student in the top percentile of his class from a good school is usua lly able to :fi.od a good job," says Thompson. "But the student with poor grades or from a poor educational system has difficulty, regardless of his race." The problem is being a lleviated somewhat by integrating Negroes into the colleges and universities that were formerly closed to them. The Federal Government a nd other sectors of society are providing massive financial aid to impwve predominantly Negro schools and to help underprivileged Negroes attend college. Businesses, such as Olin, donate funds to Negro colleges directly and indirectly through the United Negro College Fund and other organizations. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recently added a program to enable Negro high school students to obtain college scholarships.

We need you to come up with solutions for problems we don't even have. There's an old saying that goes, ''For every solution, there's a problem." What it really means is, every time somebody comes up with a better way to do something, somebody is sure to come up with a reason why it can't be done. ("We've never done it that way" is a popular one.) With all due respect, we don't believe in that old saying at Mobil. If we did, we'd never have gotten to be the country's sixth largest industrial corporation. Which brings us to you. We'd likf? to be the country's fifth largest industrial corporation. So we need more people to work for us who aren't afraid to make waves.

We need all kinds of good people: engineers, geologists, geophysicists, chemists, sales representatives, financial analysts, accountants, programmers and systems analysts, and a lot of other people we don't have space to list. We .don't care what color, age, religion or sex you are. If you're qualified for the job and feel that we're the kind of company you want to work for, we want to talk with you. Just write Mr. Robert W. Brocksban k,Manager Recruiting, Mobi I Oi I Corporation, Dept. 2006, 150 East 42nd Street, N.Y., N.Y. 10017. Who knows, maybe we can solve both of our problems.

Joel Prentice of Washington, D. C., is a good example. He became an Allstate Agent four years ago, when he was 24. What sort of man is Joel? H e's ambitious - a hard worker. He likes working with p eo p I e-a n d h e knows how to organ. i1e his time. (As an Allstate Agent, he needs that kind of self-discipline because he' s pretty much his own boss.) Joel Prentice has Joel Prentice enJoyed a rapid rise at Allstate-both in earnings and reputation. H e already has won twelve sales awards, and now ranks among the top 10o/0 of the company's agen ts across the country. And he has been promo red to a sales supervisory position. (Naturally, his income has gone up steadily, well into the five-figure hracket. ) At 28, j oel Prentice is already a prett>' successful businessman. But that's not unusual at Allstate. We're partial to people who have the i rch to get ahead. Don't get us wrong. A career at Allstate is a challenging one. It isn't easy to measure up. But if you do, here's what you'll get when you come to work with us: Opportunity : Advancement possibilities are outstanding. You'll progressjus tas fast as your talent and ambitions can take you.

BLACK POWER** A Creative New Tool For Alpha Phi Alpha

Prior to the thought-provoking concept of "Black Power" in its positive and creative form, both white and black Americans were engulfed in a murky Benjamin H. game of fooling one another about "integration" being the way to solve all Wright ills. Many went so far as to emphasiz~ that all Negroes needed to do was to get some education, be neat and all doors would open to them. The inter-racial dances and dinners where white and black get together once a ye ar "Just like they were equals" are reflective of both the degree of insight and contact among the "integrationists". Black Power, on the other hand, has focused on the gross inequities in power within the black-white relationship in America . . . a relationship so one sided in terms ct power that not only would integration of some types today be unfair to white society, but, even more important, the new perspectives achieved by the concept of black power would enable anyone to see that across-the-board-integration is both totally unnecessary and impossible in some instances. How many people that you know have been told or led to believe that "integration" of Negroes into the mainstream of American life in the same manner as white Americans were amalgamated into the larger society is a top-priority issue in this nation . . . and we must put all the energy possible toward this end"? We've all been told that is the problem in one way or another. Yet, when we examine this statement within the clearer perspective of racism or the systematic denigration of blacks that Black Power exposes, we see that "integration" in that manner is impossible of achievement. What are the progeny of any black and white union? These issues are 100% black in our society. And, if these products of inter-racial union marry whites and have children, how are these children classified? Again, they are black. This leads us to the reality of the unreality of "integration" in the same manner as white people ever being a realistic goal. Further, we have to now be aware that if integration ever does take place in our society that is totally inflicted with the culturally-induced disease of racism g__ would have to tend toward being a black society. If we as black and whites define any problem in the wrong way, we as blacks and whites

cannot come up with anything but wrong answers. And, this is precisely why America has stayed on its turbulent disaster course. Black men of Alpha Phi Alpha, and all other thinking black men and women, have a unique, new possibility open to them for the good of all America through the perspectives unfolded by the concept of Black Power. Black Power focuses precisely on the issue of deliberate debasement of black people in this country to render them effectively without any semblance of personhood or power or dignity or hope. Black Power helps us zero-in on the carefully-planned castration and depreciation of blackness needed to justify slavery and for which no compensatory efforts have ever been inaugurated to overcome the inconscienable and derogatory myths that even today makes the vestiges of slavery more overpowering than some forms of slavery itself.

Black Power in its creative c ontext helps us see clearly that black people do not need white friends through some type of s ocial m ixing . . . black people need power that comes from knowing that they are somebody . . . power through understanding that they had roots in many civilizations, African, European and Indian . . . power through realizing how they were deceived :into maintaining the posture of a nobody . . . power through being aware that we, as black men of Alpha Phi Alpha and others pushed to the m argin of society, have r ich and r eady per spectives from our unique experiences that can help bring new power to a now-powe:~;less and debilitating portion of out potentially great nation. The riots of last summer were self-destructive events . They were self-destructive because black men have not been empowered with the sense of dignity and worth, which are unalterable and undeniable gifts of our Creator. Reared in a nation whose very founding was on a racist belief by many that bl ack men wer e soul- less chattel, small wonder that the traditions that permeated all our religious, business, social and economic institutions were racist in character. Black men, or rather black "things," were left out. Black men were not humans -- they had no soul - - they had no per sonhood, according to the overpowering majority in control of white America at one time. ''Persons" have a sense of being. They experience a c r eative give-and-take with others. They recognize a sense of power over their own destiny. They know that they are more than "things . " Black people in America have been treated as though they were things. Some young black people who are yearning for identity and are seeking an explanation for their past sense of negative identity see in the failure of black people to be "black" as the root of our racial difficulties. Hence, for them there must be a glorification of blackness. "Black is beautiful." ''Black is glorious ." "Black is best. " These expressions become pathways toward being. They are seen as the vehicles which make for fulfillment. Fulfillment m ust come for black Americans, for only as fulfillment is achieved by black Americans can it come to the nation as a whole . Indeed, the term "Black Power" speaks not only to two of the basic problems in the life of Black Americans, but also to the two problems which are most pervasive in our national life . They are the twin concerns of identity and fulfillment. Black people often have a negative concept of whom or what they are. Bl ack people, in our census, are "non-white". Look up "black" and "white" in the dictionary. Webster's New World Dictionary: College Edition, 1964, speaks of black thus:


Opposite to white . . . Dark-complexioned .. . Negro ... Totally without light; in complete darkness, dark ... Soiled, dirty ... Wearing black clothing ... Evil, wicked, harmful ... Disgraceful .. . Sad; dismal; gloomy ... Sullen; anger ed ... Without hope as, a black future . .. "

You'll find the challenge at Republic so exciting (and rewarding!) you won't have time to sit down. Write Supervisor of ' Empioyment for Career Booklet.

The same dictionary defines "white" in far different terms. White means: "Having the color of pure snow or mil; of the color of radiated, transmitted or reflected light containing all the visible rays of the spectrum; opposite to black ...

Reactionary, counter-revolutionary, or royalist, as opposed to red radical or revolutionary " Black people start off with two strikes of cultural bias against them. A non-being, a negative identity is a nobody. Small wonder, then, the poor learning habits of so many of our black urban youth! Small wonder also the crimes of self-destruction and de social and civic express ions of self-hate! Small wonder also that black people are, by many signs, this nation's basic hope for sanity, decency and fulfillment! By addressing ourselves to specific problems which appear as urgent in the life of black Americans we develop saving answers which rebound to the benefit of all. Is not the problem of identity, after all, the most pervasive problem in our personal, family, community and total corporate and national life? Ou:r jails, mental and general hospitals and our automobile accident and divorce and

delinquency lists, are filled with people who have difficulties with the matter of identity. People who know who and what they are, and who have a clear vision of what they are destined to be, are daily more rare in a world where people are gripped by a sense of being "lost," "alone, " "afraid." So~called riots are expressive of self- hate. They are black suicide before white m en's bullets. TI1ey represent the crazed consequence of being a nobody boxed in on a dead-end street.

Both a philosopher named Aristotle and a prophet named Paul said that life ~ what it is destined to become. What all life needs is the power t o find its due fulfillment. Tims, Black Power speaks both to identity (or the recognition of ourselves as the persons we should be) and to the empowerment necessary to enter fully into the life which should be our own. Black Power, for men of Alpha Phi Alpha, should be a creative m e ans of showing America that black people, just as all people must have some reasonable equity in this nation ... and must be treated equitably, particularly in light of the crippling of us by our larger society. Black people must be dealt with in terms of compensatory considerations in every enterprise . Black Power must be examined because it is the creative new tool that can prove invaluable to the thinking men of A !Z> A and for saving of this nation.

Harold Odom (B.B.A., Texas Southern University) is sure he made the right career decision when he signed up with Humble. He was impressed with the organization, the people and the advancement potential, even at his job interviews. And now, after several months in the Controllers Department working with and adapting problems to new computer applications, he tells it like this: " You can go as far as you want with Humble - if you produce. And the competitive atmosphere helps you produce because it's conducive to a man's using his own initiative. Humble hired me as a systems analyst to solve problems and they let me do just that- ¡ on my own. So my chances for a future in management

are limited only by my own abilities." We at Humble are proud of people like Harold Odom who share in the responsibilities and achievements of America's Leading Energy Company.

ALPHA'S ROLE IN THE BLACK REVOLUTION . . . .. ? RECOMMENDATION: That Article 20 of the Recommendations Committee report, to the 55th Anniversary Convention, be implemented as of this convention, (60th Anniversary Convention, St. Louis ) That Alpha Phi Alpha assume the leadership, on a local level, of establishing - A Community Relations Organization. Objectives: l.

To bring together for concerted action, the trained men and women in the community, for assumption of leadership in existing organization.


A reservoir of talent lies dormant within our college fraternities and sororities. The unification of effort on the part of these individuals will make attainment of these objectives possible.

Proposed Program: 1.

That Alpha Phi Alpha be tbe initiating force.


Members of each profession or related interests will form a nucleus, to develop ways and means to coordinate a program that can be carried to other Greek letter organizations. When this has been done, we will have the means of concerted effort, to move into the proper organization. Members of the Greek letter organizations belong to every existing local organization. The function will be to assert leadership .

A City wide Community Relations Organization must be composed of every phase of Negro Life in the community. The leadership or head of every organization, such as Business, Legal, Medical, Dental, Educational, Fraternal, Civic, Social Service, Religious, Civil Rights, etc., are to be the accredited members of the local leadership council. This is where efforts will be coordinated. This type of organization should not be a pressure group. These functions are adequately handled by existing organizations . The urgent need for community leadership is based on the fact, however revolting it may be to our pet theories, THERE IS A NEGRO CCMMUNITY. With the Washington, D. C. Negro community now 53% of the population, and by 1970 such cities as Newark, Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis , Cleveland, Trenton, Oakland and Gary, the Negro Communities are expected to be the majority. Chicago and Philadelphia are expected to reach the one third mark. new power.

This predominance will mean little without leadership on the local level to exploit our The Model: The- National Jewish Community Relations Organization. Unanimously adopted. Let us implement it ... now.

With all the talk heard these days concerning the need to build up black institutions and to strengthen existing ones, i t is surprising that the historically Negro college has received so little attention in this context.

For these colleges con-

stitute the most viable and, after the church, the most influential institution in the black community. To readers of this publication, it is hardly necessary to document this assertion.

It might be pointed out, however, that

enrollment in these colleges is increasing steadily and their expenditures are rising at an even faster rate. The Phelps-Stokes Fund, which has been concerned with the quality of education for Negro Americans since 1911, undertook three years ago a study of ways and means to strengthen Negro colleges, which currently enroll some 138,000 of the 228,000 black students attending institutions of higher learning.

As a

result of these studies, it was determined that the most promising approach lay in helping Negro colleges to help themselves. The need, then as now, was primarily financial.

The Phelps-

Stokes Fund resolved, therefore, to help Negro colleges obtain the required expertise to compete in the philanthropic market . ... MORE

"Negro Colleges Help Themselves" - -


With financial assistance from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and coope ration from the


S. Office of Ed u c a tion , the Coop erative

College Development Prog r am was organized by the fund for this purpose . During the first two years of the program, the original 23 member colleges raised , under CCDP guidance , more than $10 -m illion . CCDP is now working with 4 5 colleges

(three of them, incidentally ,

predominantly white institutions) . CCDP places strong emphasis upon alumni and communi ty support , sources which in the past have done less t han they might have on behalf of "their" colleges .

Surely , if black self-esteem is to

h ave real meaning, alumni of Negro college s must rally to their support .

Local communities, which profit immensely from the very

p resence of a college and are likely to reap still greater benefits as colleges increasingly turn their attention to community needs, also owe these institutions support. It is from alumni, however, that the Negro college should look for support.

Not only are they "members of the family, " but

ordinarily they are the most able to cont ribu te.


Thus far , re-

gretably, they have done considerably less than they should A and could . The Cooperative Col lege Developme nt Program of the PhelpsStokes Fund seeks to change that .

Dr . Patte rs on, president of the Phelps-Stokes Fund, was for 20 years p resi dent of Tuskegee Institute. He was a founder of the United Negro College Fund and is a past president of the National Business League. Bro . Patterson sits on numerous boards and education al committees . His honors include 10 honorary degrees.


uras ta a out peop e instea our on. 0. When we decided to run a series of informative ads entitled "Ingenious Americans," we were frankly a little apprehensive. We're in the Bourbon business, and his tory is a bit out of our line. Yet we felt that this series about little-known, but historically important, Negro contributions had a great deal to say. So we ran it. The mail response was extremely encouraging. And then to top it off, the National Association of Market Developers presented us with an award for "outstanding leadership in consumer-oriented programming." We were convinced we were on the right track. In fact, we were so pleased with everybody's reaction that we're con tinuing the series this year.

Olin is increasing its aid to Negro education by expanding its Summer Project Grants to Negro colleges to enable students to work on creative research projects with outstanding professors, by contributing to the Independent Schools T alent Search, a group that provides scholarships to Negro high school students so they may attend outstanding prep schools, and by supporting a program that provides remedial tutoring to help talented Negro students pass the admissions test of Hofstra Colle.g e in New York. Even when the employment door is open and educational opportunities are available, Negroes generally run into two other major job-hunting problems- poor career planning and inadequate placement services. "Counselors do not encourage Negro youth to seek the training that will prepare them for expanding and/ or progressive employment possibilities," says Arthur A. Chapin, special assistant to the U.S. Secretary of Labor. "In turn, Negro youth, conditioned to a society that has discriminated against them in educational institutions, housing and employment too, often do not have confidence that training will eventually pay off. The counselor has a major responsibility for helping minority youth to prepare themselves to take full advantage of these o pportunities." "A surprisingly large number of college students are not familiar with business and are unaware of the job opportunities available," says Neil DeRosa, placement director at Geo rgia Institute of Technology. ''What they need is professio nal career-planning counseling and effective placement services. ''Career planning and placement services at some Negro colleges, especially small ones, is often less than adequate,'' adds DeRosa "Consequently, many Negro students fait to prepare for a business career or are not encouraged to apply for a job. As a result, business doesn't recruit them, and when it does, it seldom finds qualified a pplicants." This was a major roadblock for graduates of five small Negro schools in Atlanta, Ga¡.: Atlanta University, Clark College, Morehouse College, Morris Brown College and Spelman College. Although each of the schools had a placement office, the students at so me of these institutions received limited career guidance. Likewise, placement services at some of these schools were largely ineffective. Some industry recruiters who visited Atlanta were reluctant to schedule interviews at the five Negro colleges. The college recruiter of a majo r corporation bas such a tight schedule and is in such competition with other companies that he has to go where he feels he can be most successful in recruiting applicants. Therefore, recruiters tended to visit the major colleges and bypassed the small ones. When recruiters did interview students, tbey found them to be unprepared for the opportunities and consequently unqualified for positions open at that time. "We at Clark College have been interested in having our graduates pursue business careers for many years," says Dr. James Brawley, president emeritus of the school. "But until recently business careers fo r them were limited largely to small Negro enterprises- where our graduates have done well. The recent search by large corporations for eligible candidates has not been as fruitful as we would like. Time is required to reorient students towards these new opportunities and to motivate their interest. While we had counselors and a program to help students, our placement officers had additional duties and could not devote full time to placement, much Jess career planning." "The crux of the problem was financial," says John D. Withers, dean of Clark. "We simply did not have the funds to establish and operate a sophisticated placement center." During visits to Atlanta, Monte J acoby, Olin's college relations officer, became aware of the plight of the five schools. Generally, he recommended that (1) a central placement service be established, (2) a full-time professional director of career planning and placement be hired and (3) an experienced placement director from a major school serve as consultant.

These recommendations were substantiated in a detailed s tudy made by College Placement Services, Inc., a nonprofit organization that assists Negro colleges in the development of career counseling and placement programs. (At the request of the Atlanta University Center, a cooperative affiliation of the five Negro colleges.) Trustees of the Olin Mathieson Charitable Trust then approved a $60,000 grant to finance the proposed new placement center over a six-year period. Harvey Anderson, an experienced Negro personnel administrator, was hired as coordinator of career planning and placement, and Neil DeRosa was engaged as consultant A modest building was constructed in December, 1967, and by the first of the year, Atlanta University Center Career Planning and Placement Office was officially opened: "The centralization of placement is proving to be more efficient than the previous setup," says Anderson. "Students at all five colleges now have a greater variety of companies to consider. The new career planning and placement center also maintains a central library of career information material and company literature. Modern facilities provide more private areas for job interviews." Long-range plans of the Atlanta University Center Placement Office include extensive career counseling, to be conducted primarily by the five college people who previously had placement responsibilities. "We can now devote more time to individual career guidance to help the student decide whether to continue in graduate school, go into business or train for teaching or medicine," says Mrs. Georgia Jones, placement director of the five institutions. "We plan to conduct seminars to develop a dialogue between students and businessmen," says Anderson. "We hope to conduct special informational programs, with guest speakers, career days, motion pictures and other activities of interest to students, businessmen and college faculties. We are especially interested in surveying our alumni to know where our graduates go when they leave school, what success- or failure- they have had in finding a career. Success stories of alumni can be strong motivational factors for undergraduates." Anderson is especially interested in encouraging Atlantaarea businessmen to make use of the new placement office. "Many of our graduates are reluctant to leave here and work elsewhere, even when offered good jobs," he says. "They prefer to live aod work in Atlanta, a city they know. This can be very beneficial to the local community. Although Negroes represent 23 per cent of the population of Atlanta, only 2.3 per cent hold white-collar jobs. We want local businessmen to realize that there is a large pool of talent right here that can make a fine contribution to the community. T he loss of these people from the region is a drain on the economy's human capital." It is still too early to measure the success of the placement office, but everyone is optimistic. The immediate goal is to help place mo re Negro graduates in rewarding jobs in business. The longer-range objective is to make minority students aware of emerging opportunities in business. The Center will show, by its very presence on the campus, that business is interested in hiring Negroes. The Center also serves as a practical model for other small schools to follow in pooling their resources to improve student services. While education and industry have combined forces to help the Negro graduate find employment, the problem cannot be resolved unless the Negro graduate also makes an effort. One Negro, who holds a responsible position in a large company, says: "My advice to anyone interested in business is to knock on some doors. No one's going to come out and grab you by the shoulder and say, 'Come in, I need you.' You've got to seek for yourself. In some cases you might get turned down-it might be a racial thing and it might not. But you can't be afraid; you have to go on and at least try!'
