Well, it was sort of shocking, but having been raised in the South, and having had a lot of derogatory things said to you, and then having experienced things in the state legislature, and traveling, it was shocking, but it was something that annoyed the Attica community, and having worked with, ah, with Black guards who had previously worked there and who had to quite because they could not take the pressure working in that institution, and one of them, who actually tried to live in the Attica community and had to move his family, so the area had a reputation of being hostile to African American people.


That's good, cut.
