Interview with Curtis Jones
QUESTION 26
INTERVIEWER:

DID, UH, THIS EVENT, THIS, WHAT HAPPENED AROUND THAT TIME, DID IT HAVE ANY EFFECT ON YOUR FEELINGS TOWARDS WHITE PEOPLE AT THAT TIME?

Curtis Jones:

No it didn't, for the simple reason, uh, the way my mother raised me. I was raised in the church, you know, uh, I don't know if you know it was a sanctified church, and they don't teach no hate, you know. You go there and, uh, and they it's about teach, you turn the other cheek, you know, and, you know, I was seventeen years old and all I knew was church, you know. And trying to live right, you know. So I was just about too young, and raised too good and pure to have any hate in my heart, you know.
