Paperback, read in the UK about 1975, setting USA and the UK. The plot was a pandemic that was killing all white people (I think also Asians and Orientals but not sure)
There were like Black Power groups fighting for power and also church leaders making their own grabs for control
Then rumours begin about 'The Floured Men' who are allegedly a couple of men trying to fetch back the olden days of white people in charge by going 'whiteface'
Note: Although I read this in the mid-seventies it was a few years old and 'of it’s time' Therefore some racist phrases were casually used
It transpires that the Floured Men are actually white survivors so there is an assumption that things will now get back to normal with them running things
