    • Abstract:
      Social welfare's stance toward the Negro, the author states, has been one of philanthropic colonialism, which has two aspects: paternalism predicated on the assumption of cultural underdevelopment and clinical ism founded on a presumption of psychological damage resulting from the Negro's history. The values of cultural pluralism as opposed to the melting pot ideology are pointed out. It is time, the author maintains, to try the "great experiment".-to opt for the desirability of ethnicity, to provide a decent standard of living for minority groups and an opportunity to enter the mainstream while at the same time maintaining their differences.
