Fascisti of America (Timothy Ashby, South Africa, 08/28/17 3:57 am)

In response to Eugenio Battaglia (27 August), I got my dates wrong but the context was right. The American Fascisti Association (aka Order of Black Shirts) was formed in the spring of 1930. They issued a magazine called Black Shirt. At the height of the Depression the group attempted to appeal to white workers by parading with placards stating "No Jobs for N------ Until Every White Man Has a Job."

Although the group adopted the name of the Italian fascist movement, they were associated with the Ku Klux Klan. I did not write that they or the Klan were associated with Italian-Americans. The organizations were, as Eugenio correctly states, opposed to Catholics.

JE comments:  This post presented me with the N-word quandary.  Should one publish the word in the interest of history, or resort to ellipsis?  I opted for the latter, as the meaning is abundantly clear.  Was this a prudent decision or a cop-out?

There are several appearances of the full N-word in the WAIS archive, mostly from the Ronald Hilton era.  Always a direct quote of course.  As I age (today is my 11th anniversary as WAIS editor), I must be getting more squeamish.  Or simply cautious.
