Nowadays silence is looked on as odd and most of my race has forgotten the beauty of meaning much by saying little."

-- From Toni Morrison's new book, "Love"

There are at least 5 definable points in the black political spectrum that can readily be said to have a vast constituency within black populace, which are simultaneously operative on virtually all political issues affecting blacks.

1. The Traditional Integrationist: NAACP, NAACP legal defense fund, National Urban League. It is this portion of the black political spectrum that has been most recognized and responded to by whites and by predominantly white institutions. The RESULTS of integrationist litigation are more real, more institutional and have a more concrete impact on daily reality than the many fledgling programs and new theories of other poles.
