As Erbelding notes in her 2010 critique and as Dudziak notes in her new preface for the 2011 edition, Cold War Civil Rights is a work of "America in the World" history—pioneering in its time—and not the transnational approach that has largely supplanted it. Should culture be an integral part of the educational system? Outrights racists were unswayed, but many Americasns were what might be called 'genteel' racists.

He got involved with a much more, let’s say, ideological group of students, who you can imagine — they have this white American blond kid in the middle of their midst, and they keep testing his mettle, saying, "Well, if you really want to be a Muslim brother, you’ve got to go fight the jihad."

Schatz minces no words and gets straight to the point, proclaiming; "Any settlement that leaves people living on the street in filthy conditions and permits chaos from 9 to 6 (a.m.) every night in one critical area of the city is unacceptable." The development of this program is dictated by the need to recognize the content of messages transmitted over the Internet, taking into account linguistic differences and dialects. This civil libertarian critique of federal civil rights policy was evident in the surprising testimony before the PCCR of Charles Hamilton Houston, a leading figure in the NAACP’s anti-segregation litigation campaign. [118] “It may sound a little strange,” Houston told the Committee, but, basically, I am a states rights man as distinguished from a federal rights man, because I can conceive of the Federal Government being a juggernaut which can roll over minority rights, as well as protect them, and the present performance of the Federal Government in the witch hunt against Communists, and its fight against labor, gives me no belief that the Federal Government either is the repository of all wisdom or should be entrusted with all the police power of the United States of America. [119] Much the same point was featured in an assessment of To Secure These Rights published in the Harvard Law Review, whose author criticized the PCCR report for its virtually unqualified enthusiasm for federal power. [120] “[T]his emphasis has. .. resulted in the virtual ignoring of those threats to civil liberty which prompted the original adoption of the first ten Amendments.. .. [C]ivil rights are constantly imperiled, as much today as in any previous time, by certain suggested or actual uses of the processes of government.” [121] (Note the implicit rejection of the PCCR’s civil rights-civil liberties distinction in this critique.) The further left one was on the political spectrum, the more one had to lose from the emergence of the civil rights-civil liberties divide, since it had the effect of detaching a liberal cause that was growing in support (civil rights for African Americans) from one that was under fire (civil liberties for leftists). “Within the last three years a distinction has developed between ‘civil rights’ and ‘civil liberties’ that clearly reflects a tendency to reject the moral commitment to preserve our freedom which is part of the American heritage,” the editors of the Nation lamented in 1950. [122] “[W]hat if the price which government demands for the affirmative protection of civil rights is acquiescence in the curtailment of civil liberties?” [123] Carey McWilliams, a Nation contributor and an activist committed to combating both anticommunism and racial discrimination, wrote a book in 1950 in which he accused liberals of attempting to divert attention from the problem of economic rights and basic civil liberties through their newfound interest in civil rights. [124] “Civil liberties and civil rights are not separable,” he declared in a subsequent editorial. [125] Although these voices of dissent would strengthen as the excesses of the anticommunist crusade continued to pile up and liberal opinion was mobilized, albeit tentatively and gradually, on behalf of free expression for political dissidents, it would not be until McCarthyism died down in the late 1950s that one could fairly say that mainstream liberal opinion embraced a robust commitment to civil liberties. [126] By the late 1950s, the political conditions that had encouraged the development of the civil rights-civil liberties divide were receding.
