    • Abstract:
      The article reports that in Gary, Indiana, a Hoosier community, which was recently selected as the American city where the Afro-Americans comes closest to first-class citizenship, provides an interesting illustration of conditions, which affect the balloting of Northern non-whites. Though fear of unemployment has been a declining tradition among white mill-workers in recent years, it remains a lively emotion among non-whites. These Northern Afro-Americans communities as a whole would have been somewhat better off economically by now were it not for, the continuing influx from the South. Confronted by this problem, by discrimination and by the other sources of economic insecurity, most Afro-Americans retain an unusually high degree of sensitivity to economic issues. Democrats, whether or not they deserve it, receive political benefits from these fears.
