A Breakdown in Civil Rights Enforcement?

Glazer, Nathan. "A breakdown in civil rights enforcement?" The Public Interest, 1971.

Excerpt: When the enormous report 1 of the United States Commission on Civil Rights appeared last October, it made page one of the New York Times, under the predictable headlines, “U.S. Rights Panel Finds Breakdown in Enforcement.” The first sentence of the story read: “The United States Commission on Civil Rights said today there had been a ‘major breakdown’ in enforcement of the vast complex of federal laws and executive orders against discrimination.”
