The author appears on David Garroway’s impressive talk show. The host asks him not to soft-pedal or evade the issue in any way. The interview goes off very well as Garroway asks him just the right kind of questions to draw out the complete picture of the issue. Garroway even asks him about racism in the Northern States, but Griffin refuses to answer saying that he is not competent to answer this question.
This entry is about the personal courage of the white host of a talk show, Garroway, who is not afraid of the repercussions, but tells the author to just tell the truth as honestly and frankly as he can and not to worry about the sponsors or anything else. The author is deeply impressed by this and the interview is intensely moving and ends in a resurgence of faith in mankind.
This entry also reveals the sincerity and honesty of the author. He is asked about racism in the North, which he frankly admits he does not know enough about. But he also notes how it is often very shrewdly used to justify the racism of the South.
