The latter train of thought seems to be the basis for contemporary Southern racism. Of course, the more the freed slaves tried to raise their level of accomplishment the more they threatened to show themselves as equals of whites in every way the more the white racist had to prevent such achievements in order to prevent a feeling of guilt. Thus, a vicious circle was created which lasts still today: the more the white man oppressed Negroes, the greater guilt he felt, and, therefore, the more he had to oppress blacks in order to prove to himself that blacks were inferior.

For several years Griffin's journalistic efforts had been directed at the so-called race problem, and when his narrative begins he is engaged in a scientific research study of the condition of Negroes in the South, to be backed up by statistics which supposedly could provide an objective measure of the suffering of a whole race.
