Interview with Ed Marciniak
QUESTION 35
SHEILA C. BERNARD:

So who was on the sidewalks? Who were?

ED MARCINIAK:

They, they were the activists who reflected, ah, some of the worst things about Chicago. Ah. Ah, they also saw the marchers as the activists who were going to turn their neighborhoods from all-White to all-Black. And so they felt offensive about it. Now whether they were representative, I don't know. Nobody knows whether they were representative. And therefore to smear all Whites on the southwest side or the northwest side I think is a fundamental error.
