Wicker, Tom. "Red Carpets and Other Hypocrisies."
New York Times, February 15, 1973, p. 43.
A short piece on the hypocrisy of American praise of the then returning P.O.W.'s from Vietnam
while other veterans were suffering from unemployment, drug addiction, and lack of education
(all with planned cutbacks). Mentioned in the article was the unemployment rate of
African-American veterans aged 20-24 for the last quarter of 1972 (9.5%). Well above other
veterans in the same age group.
