John Wayne's Ultra-Racist Views of African Americans Ran Deep

Apr 30, 16 by EurPublisher

As we reported earlier, the California State Assembly rejected a John Wayne Day resolution authored by Orange County Republican Assemblyman Matthew Harper because Wayne said in a Playboy interview in May, 1971 he believed in “white supremacy.”

 As bad as that was it was just the tip of the iceberg of Wayne’s hard core mean spirited, ultra-racist views about African-Americans. Despite the California Assembly’s rejection of the Wayne Day, Wayne is still America’s much revered super-hero, icon and symbol of American values. Here’s America’s icon’s views about African-Americans that his “white supremacy” quip only barely scratched the surface with.

Read and judge for yourself:

PLAYBOY:  Angela Davis claims that those who would revoke her teaching credentials on ideological grounds are actually discriminating against her because she’s black. Do you think there’s any truth in that?

WAYNE: With a lot of blacks, there’s quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent, and possibly rightfully so. 

* * * EDITORS NOTE, West Sacramento CA (IFS) -- We interrupt this reading to interject some objective point of views to this article.  As One notes above from the PlayBoy Magazine inteview from 1971, Mr Wayne opened the interview above in the red italic bold print.  

Mr Wayne made some of his millions of dollars and on screen success to moviegoers of color forever.  The rest of this is just "Hollywood" like in Governor George Wallace's heyday of race and denying people of color the right to go to school.  It was that view of the time in America that hate was on everyone's minds. . . 

Mr. Wayne did not fight on any frontlines other then those in front of a camera.  First, he was just old enough not to be eligible for military duty -- so he made films  

The mental war on war is war for the whole family and friends bit.  And possibly, one can count the number of actors with color on his films -- all on one hand.  

Wayne never had a black female in the same picture frame with him...on any film. KHS * * *

WAYNE: But we can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.


John Wayne’s Racist Comments Kill Official Recognition in California Assembly PLAYBOY: Are you equipped to judge which blacks are irresponsible and which of their leaders inexperienced?

WAYNE: It’s not my judgment. The academic community has developed certain tests that determine whether the blacks are sufficiently equipped scholastically. But some blacks have tried to force the issue and enter college when they haven’t passed the tests and don’t have the requisite background.

PLAYBOY: How do they get that background?

WAYNE: By going to school. I don’t know why people insist that blacks have been forbidden their right to go to school. They were allowed in public schools wherever I’ve been. Even if they don’t have the proper credentials for college, there are courses

PLAYBOY: But isn’t it true that we’re never likely to rectify the inequities in our educational system until some sort of remedial education is given to disadvantaged minority groups?

WAYNE: What good would it do to register anybody in a class of higher algebra or calculus if they haven’t learned to count? ………….
