Flyer distributed by white communities in Newark. The original flyer was titled “The Wops want Race War,” and was distributed primarily within the city’s Black communities in response to white demands for police dogs after the 1967 Newark rebellion. Upon finding the flyer, someone within the white community added a new heading to the flyer and redistributed it in the white community.
Flyer from the Loyal Americans for Law and Order (LALO), which was formed during the 1967 Newark rebellion by a man named Don Gottwerth. The organization mobilized white fear and resentment and supported the police, most notably in the campaign for a police canine corps immediately after the rebellion. The proposed “canine corps” for the Newark Police Department was a hotly contested issue in the aftermath of the rebellion.
