A detail from an editorial titled "Integrity of the Anglo-Saxon Race," published in the March 15, 1925, edition of the Newport News Daily Press, announces the creation of a local branch of the Anglo-Saxon Clubs of America. Walter Scott Copeland, the editor of the newspaper, expresses his opinion that the men heading this white supremacist organization are "taking every possible precaution to preserve the integrity of the white race. Copeland argues "this organization is not unfriendly to the negro race," citing their creed, "I believe in the supremacy of the white race in the United States of America, without racial prejudices or hatreds."
