Maj Gen O.P. Smith Franklin Williams

Back on 7 February Assistant CMC MajGen Oliver P. Smith wrote to Franklin Williams NAACP community organizer, regarding the creation of another all blank unit in the reserves. He said that the choice of integrated or segregated units must be made by the local community "in accord with its cultural values."

When the NAACP objected to the creation of another all-black reserve unit in New York City as being contrary to Defense Department policy, the Marine Corps justified it on the grounds that the choice of integrated or segregated units must be made by the local community "in accord with its cultural values."[18-8]
