DARK GHETTO
Continued from page 8.

Harlem. The assimilation of these groups has not been so difficult because of one factor. Though they had their own accents and peculiarities of speech, they spoke the same language as the American Negro.

Our annexation of the Phillipines, Porto Rico, and other Spanish speaking possessions, contributed an additional group of Spanish, Indian and Negro extraction.

These people, because of differnce in speech and customs, are clannish and keep to themselves, but upon becoming Americanized, intermarry and socialize with those of American birth.

The Central and South American countries send their quota of immigrants.

From Haiti, Harlem gets the pure blooded Haitian Negro, proud and aloof, hard to assimilate. Not so anxious to learn English, they persist in speaking French. Also many octoroons and Mulattoes arrive from this island.

In fact at the present time, from what is known as Harlem, we could in a given time, produce a representative of any race on the face of the earth.

In making this lengthy statement and explanation, I only wish to impress the readers of SHOWDOWN the population of the Dark Ghetto, as it exists today, that is, in its entirety.
