QUESTION 13
INTERVIEWER:

DO YOU THINK THAT THEY FELT THAT THIS WAS JUST THE WRONG WAY TO DO IT, THAT CHANGE WAS COMING BUT IT SHOULDN'T BE DONE THIS WAY, OR DO YOU THINK THEY FELT THE CHANGE SHOULDN'T HAPPEN?

Judge Charles Clark:

I think that both of these uh ideas were prevalent. I think both the idea that uh, we like things the way they are, uh status quo uh, was a very much in the minds of the white community now, in the state and also that there were people who thought that this was the wrong way to do it, that the courts were forcing the state to do something incorrectly.
