The feeling of the lack of color bar amongst the Germans, the sense of belon among the enemy, the desire to stay there rather than return to their own coun background the prejudice-baited lives of the Negroes,-Hayes, Steven, the Pro Randy, etc., and make clear a racial democracy they do not know at home.
