BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : JOE LOUIS " THE RACISM YEARS " AND "SERVING UNCLE SAM "
The Famous Statement by Joe Louis in 1944 " We will win the war, because we are on God's side "
Although Louis never saw combat, but during his travel he would often experience blatant racism. On one occasion a Military Police Man (MP) ordered Louis and Sugar Ray to move there seats to a bench at the back. "We ant moving " said Louis. The MP tried to arrest them, but Louis forcefully argued the pair out of the situation. In an other occasion Louis had to resort to bribery to persuade a Commanding Officer to drop charges against Jackie Robinson for punching a Captain who had called Robinson a "Nigger".
