C-J, FDR, and racial discrimination in housing and employment

FDR created the Fair Employment Practices Committee but “ensured the agency’s weakness” by naming Mark Etheridge, the publisher of the Courier-Journal as its chair. Etheridge compared federal non-discrimination efforts to “the Nazi dictator pattern”. Etheridge was the publisher of the C-J when the Wades were trying to live in their house and wrote an editorial blaming the Bradens. 

according to which book/author? Color of Law, Bernstein, K'Meyer?
