    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 3) BALDWIN:



    "AND ON THIS COMING SUNDAY, WE ARE NOT ONLY IN THE POSITION OF PETITIONERS. IT IS ALSO, HOW CAN I PUT IT, A WARNING, AND NOT A THREAT, BUT A WARNING, ABOUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THIS COUNTRY IF IT IS UNABLE TO FACE ESSENTIAL PROBLEMS. AS NEGRO WITH ANY SENSE AT ALL, AND ANY NEGRO DEALING WITH PEOPLE OF HARLEM, PEOPLE ON THE SOUTH SIDE, PEOPLE ANYWHERE IN THIS COUNTRY NEGROES I MEAN, ESPECIALLY YOUNGSTERS, ANY HUMAN BEING KNOWS PEOPLE ARE NOT, BY NATURE, NON-VIOLENT. IT DEMANDS A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF DISCIPLINE FOR THEIR CHILDREN AND THEIR ELDERS TO BEHAVE AS THEY HAVE ALL ALONE AND WITH NO HELP - I REPEAT THIS - NO HELP, FROM THE GOVERNMENT OR FROM MOST OF THE CITIZENS."
