Schwartzburd asks BR about a specific passage found in his book Marriage and Morals which makes the claim that on average negroes are inferior to white men. Schwartzburd asks if he meant that they were inherently inferior, and if so, if BR could back up his claim. Schwartzburd says that he would like to believe BR would not say something unfounded by empirical evidence.

A draft reply in Schoenman's hand is on the letter.
