TULSA'S SOCIAL CONDITIONS
THIS COMMON 1'I.ACK AXIOM that no race can ever rise ahovu the
Invul of tho moral ttutus of Its women Ik true without question hut this
nxlnm must enrrj with It the fait Hint the male contingent of the race
should iilso posses the standard of high moral and elevating acumuii In
order to suhstnntltnto the Idealism of Its womanhood. A race Is Judged
hy Its standards of moral etuHtlng and high aspirations of social and
Christian character nnd takes its place In tho ranks of civilization In so
far ns It meets the approval of tho best of manhood and womanhood.
Thorcforu It should bo the desire and hope of any race to strive for the
hlchost peuuncle of moral standards nnd self-respecting lives.
As with races so It Is with communities. Individuals and homes. To
purify tho social lives of each of these should bo the ambition of all that
tho education nnd training muy be highly developed nnd exemplified. No
community or people nrvcl hope to be honored and respected without
these elements of social standing Our own community hero Is greatly
In need of a purer nnd higher standard of moral activity. -A line of dis-
tinction between the r.ooil and Hie bad a line of denioi ration between the
polished lady anil gentleman and the rough uncouth nnd degenerate in-
dUldual. We have the unheard of 1 UHlom In Tulsa of little or no class
distinction lining drawn In the social life of its people A co-mingtlng of
nil classes without reganl to cliaraclei social standing or the manner of
lltlng. Wo hnn It from reliable sources that In our public schools are
one or two teachers whose reputation Is common notoriety as being
morally unfit for the position hut Is at the same time accepted on equal
footing with the best classes of the ll To say that any community
looking forwnrd to tho best In life for their children or the ostabllshment
of social standards for Hie community and yet tolerate these adverse con-
ditions which are retlec tious upon our stnndard of good morals nnd
Boclul environments We believe there are enough of the hlgli-mllided
lovers of nil Ideal standard of race morula unci character to overbalance
the tendent Iuh to the lower strntu of the unwholesome element who are
undermining our social structure and degrading the rnre tho community
nnd tho home. I'lmt of oil let the well-meaning portion of our people
rid tliu community of the Immoral teacher and those who pose as loaders
leading lives of questionable respectability Set up a standard of morals
nnd force a lino of (lass dlstlction that every man and woman mint come
to before they are recognized ns respectable and upright cltliens. It can
be done it must lie done to safe-guard the future of our boys nnd girls
who are now taking of ways nnd actions as examples for Imitation.
We have been playing the part of moral coward too long; wo have
been too afraid of hurting somehod)'s feeling we have been too careless
of our duty not only to oiirseUes but to our prosterity; we have been
ton free entirely. In our social commonlugllng As a natural consequence
the really respectable and well-meaning people are often thrown In direct
contact with the moral slums of the race. The churches and lndgns nfo
no lunger protection against these unwholesome conditions. Thuro are
as many moral Inpards In the churches and lodges as there are out of thorn
In proportion to a relative population. These are hard facts and we might
ns well wnko up NOW and fortify ourselves for the fight that must romo
If o would hnvo soclnl purity in Tulsa.
Our wives .nut daughters are associating daily with women of lewd
character an ilmeii who hate 110 regard for the chaslty and virtue of
womanhood nnd our boys are b"lng bruught up under condition worse
than those found behind tho prison wnlls. And in the fare of all till we
are stumllng with folded arms supinely looking 011 while the foundation
of our very racial life is being dtstroyod. liecause of these conditions
more thnn nnything else the race Is suffering the humiliation of "Jim
Cromlsm" and other discriminations It there Is a spark of true manhood
and womanhood left In Hie uimmunlly (nnd there is) It should enlist In
the fight for true racial uplift Tho lime is now here The fight Is on.
Will you enlist?
