The problem in America

Larry Kane interviewed the Beatles individually backstage before the concerts in Chicago in 1965.   Interestingly enough, they were looking at a magazine (was it Newsweek?) with the title "the White problem in America."   Their was a lot of racial tension in the United States in 1965.   The Watts riots were going on when the Beatles came to the U.S. and this was a topic the Beatles discussed backstage.    Things haven't changed very much in 50 years, sadly.
