Interview with Walter Mondale
QUESTION 11
INTERVIEWER:

DID THE MISSISSIPPI DELEGATION WANT YOU SIMPLY TO DENY THEM… UH, THE MSDP CHALLENGE ENTIRELY? IS THAT WHAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR?

Walter Mondale:

They wanted to be seated on the grounds that uh, they were the Democrats and uh, I think some of them denied there was discrimination but that case couldn't hold because there wasn't a single black in the delegation as I recall. And uh, just forget it and go on like we had in the good old days. Uh, that was the basically the case they made.
